Applause in a Small Room

Sundays at 4pm on HPR1

Join sound engineer Jason Taglianetti each week as he shares live performances recorded in HPR's Atherton Studio.  Whether it's a local or visiting artist, whether it's blues, jazz, rock, or country, the performances share one thing... The magic that happens in live performance.

On the next Applause in a Small Room we'll be featuring one of Hawaii's best bluegrass and americana bands, the Saloon pilots.  They joined us n the studio and shared songs ranging from U2 and the Grateful dead to bluegrass favorites.. and all of it done in their usualy saloon pilots style.  This sunday at 4pm on HPR-1

On the next Applause in a Small Room we'll be joined in the studio by one of Hawaii Piano Jazz Masters, Ethan Capone.  He'll share with us songs by Gershwin, Mingus, and Maurice Ravel, and many more.

On this show we feature the piano mastery of Tommy James from our series of Piano Jazz Masters Concerts.   Tommy will be sharing music from the cinema from composers such as Bronislau Kaper, Henry Mancini, Vince Guaraldi, and many more. 

We're in the middle of fundraising and today's show is all about sharing what we do on the show. We'll take a listen to a new recording with Blaine Asing and Alx Kawakami, two Hawaii based artists playing a show at the Blue Note Hawaii on April 12 and 13th 2018. In the second segment of the show we'll hear a couple of songs that have become favorites of mine.  The first from Ron Artis II and the second is from Introspektra. and we end the show with live performances from Take 6, Delfeayo Marsalis, and Eric Hutchinson. All recorded in Hawaii Public Radio's Atherton Studio.

On Today's show we're featuring Hawaii slack key guitarist Sean Robbins in a concert from 2015.  Sean joined us in the studio with friends on the bass and lap steel guitar.
