Coming June 9, 2016, Here & Now listeners and visitors will experience our stories and journalism online in a whole new way.
And that’s a shame, according to Here & Now pop culture critic Renee Graham, she says because it’s the perfect album for summer listening.
“It’s so light, it’s breezy, it’s easy,” Graham said. “It’s beautifully produced music.”
Quadron’s “Avalanche” is one of three new albums Renee wants to bring to listeners’ attention. She also loves “Sound the Alarm” by Booker T. Jones, perhaps better known as the man behind the R&B staple “Green Onions.”
On the new album, Booker T. teams up with a number of younger performers, but as the writer or co-writer of every song on the album, “he’s still leading the show here.”
“If you like soul, if you like jazz, Jose James will work for you,” she said.
