Sundays 10:00pm to 1:00am Eastern Standard Time
Nick Scheuble hosts “Rudy’s Place”, a jazz show dedicated to playing music recorded by the most famous engineer in jazz history, Rudy Van Gelder who’s legendary studio is nearby in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.
Van Gelder’s career has spanned over 6 decades, recording Jazz icons such as John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Thelonious Monk; for labels such as Blue Note, Prestige and Impulse. He is the engineer who recorded “A Love Supreme”, “Blues and the Abstract Truth”, “Speak No Evil”, “Smokin at the Half Note” and countless other masterpieces. The mere indication of his name on a recording is a bonafide jazz “seal of approval”.
Your host, Nick Scheuble is a professional jazz drummer who has performed with artists such as Wynton Marsalis, Wycliffe Gordon, Steve Turre and Bill Crow. In the fall of 2013, Rudy Van Gelder recorded his daughter Leonieke Scheuble’s album entitled, “Debut”. Nick drummed on half the record and Jimmy Cobb (drummer on Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue) drummed on the other half.
The magic of Rudy’s studio- Rudy saying “those are the steps where John Coltrane sat when he recorded “A Love Supreme” and hearing “The Old Girl” , (the organ that Jimmy Smith played on those historic Blue Note sides), along with Rudy’s genius inspired the concept for this show.
From his first recordings for Blue Note in 1952, through his most current recordings, be prepared to hear the very best in Jazz through the mastery of Rudy Van Gelder. Tune into “Rudy’s Place” Sundays at 10:00 p.m.
