But then again, there aren&rsquo;t a lot of musicians like <a href="http://www.tomekareid.net/#home-section">Tomeka Reid</a>. Classically trained, Reid didn&rsquo;t consider jazz as her main bag until flutist Nicole Mitchell pulled her into Mitchell&rsquo;s Black Earth Ensemble 15 years ago. Since then she&rsquo;s taught kids, lent her talents to a wide variety of ensembles and genres, has worked with just about everyone in Chicago&rsquo;s world-renowned improvisation scene and played in world capitals. Now she&rsquo;s got an album of her own, the Tomeka Reid Quartet. She played selections from it for us.</p></p> Mon, 21 Sep 2015 11:17:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/programs/morning-shift/2015-09-21/cellist-and-composer-tomeka-reid-releases-her-first-album-leader Global Notes: In “Chamber Music,” a blend of African and Western traditions http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/global-notes-%E2%80%9Cchamber-music%E2%80%9D-blend-african-and-western-traditions <img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://llnw.wbez.org//SegalSissoko-Gassian3750.jpg" alt="" /><p><p><a href="http://www.wbez.org/radio-m">Radio M</a> host Tony Sarabia joins Jerome for another edition of <a href="http://www.wbez.org/globalnotes">Global Notes</a>, Worldview&rsquo;s weekly look at what&rsquo;s happening in the world of music.
