Sugar's Picks Sept 24, 2012
Elle King / The Elle King EP / Fat Possum
Only 3 tracks for airplay, but 3 very hot tracks.
Diana Krall / Glad Rag Doll / Verve
She's got the voice, she can play the piano, Marc Ribot, Jay Bellerose, Colin Linden & T Bone Burnett (he produced the CD) are on board for a nice twist, and you fellas might enjoy the liner photos.
Lee Ritenour / Rhythm Sessions / Concord
The guitar legend (this may be his 45th album!) brings in young talent including his son, Wesley & the winners of his "2012 Rhythm Section Competition," along with the established mastery of George Duke, Dave Grusin, Stanley Clarke, Kurt Elling & Christian McBride.
The Soul Jazz Orchestra: Afro, Latin, Caribbean rolled into a gumbo of World, Jazz & Soul.
Iris DeMent: Her 1st album of original songs in 16 years.
Beth Orton: Sweet, strong & sensational.
Polica: "Dark Star" remix with a very cool sound.
