Jazz Guitarist Steps Lightly
Charles Gatschet released his second album Step Lightly earlier this year. About half the album is made up of what Kansas City Star jazz critic Joe Klopus called "thought-provoking originals," including a bebop tune dedicated to Charlie Parker and a bossa nova for anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan.
Kansas City, MO – Charles Gatschet sat down recently with KCUR's jazz correspondent Lee Ingalls and talked about the inspiration for the album's title track, composed by tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson. He'll have a second CD-release party in Denver next month, but he also performs Friday and Saturday with the Loren Pickford Trio at the Golden Ox.
