CD of the Month - June 2015

The KCCK Featured CD for June is "Crescendo" by Johnson County Landmark. Continuing a long tradition of University of Iowa faculty and students collaborating with professional artists to develop new work, Jazz Studies Director John Rapson worked with Paola Coletto and Matteo Destro last fall to create the theatrical piece, "Crescendo: Scenes from School." It included music by Rapson performed by Johnson County Landmark. Rapson then took the big band and special guests into the studio to record his compositions. The result, "Crescendo", is from Realtown! Records.
