Alexander Gershman of Sasha's Bloc Jazz Collective

Alexander Gershman of Sasha's Bloc Jazz Collective | Sasha's Bloc | Scoop.it
Bassist Alexander Gershman, founder of the jazz collective Sasha's Bloc, chats with Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid & Lisa D. Smith about the jazz industry and the release of their second album, Heart On Fire. Sasha's Bloc aims to solidify their growing presence on the U.S. music scene with this original album that hearkens back to the Big Jazz Band sound of the 1920's, 30's and 40's, and to a performance style that evokes such seminal acts as Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Count Basie, Scott Joplin, Ella Fitzgerald and more. An intriguing ensemble founded in 2012, Sasha's Bloc is an amalgam of varied artists, nationalities and experiences, all fueled by bassist and songwriter Alex Gershman to deliver a sound that is consistently big, boisterous, full of spirit and rich in everything that makes jazz linger as an American phenomenon. On Heart On Fire, Gershman is honored to have Grammy-nominated vocalist Jane Monheit perform on multiple tracks. This interview originally aired on Big Blend Radio on June 5, 2015, a show that broadcastes live from the historic Conorado Motor Hotel in Yuma, Arizona.
