Join KMUW’s Carla Eckels, host and producer of Soulsations, in conversation with chart-topping jazz artist Skinny Hightower. The interview will premiere at 6 p.m on Tuesday, June 29, on Soulsations’ Facebook page.
From Wichita, Hightower is a record producer, bass player, drummer and jazz pianist with a reputation for trekking his own path. With two No. 1 Billboard singles (“Blue Moon” and “Taboo”) and four Top 5 Billboard singles (“Blue Moon,” “Taboo,” “Bittersweet,” and “Sample That”), Hightower is no stranger to mass appeal.
KMUW’s Carla Eckels will host Hightower in conversation about his craft and his latest effort “Blue Moon,” a two-disc collection of lively yet edgy ’70s-clad instrumentals. More than 100 songs were recorded, all produced by Hightower, and a team was carefully selected to determine the best 24 songs of the bunch, forming what is now an album of considerable proportions.
