Jim Cavender, Huntsville, Ala. :: released To A Planet, the third CD of original jazz by his group, Rolling Jazz Revue. It was released on Startlingly Fresh Records, a label owned by Jim and his wife, Terri Smith Cavender (’85, ’92 M.A.). Startlingly Fresh also released A Cellarfull of Noise, an alt-country collaboration between Jim and fellow guitarist-singer-songwriter Skip Heller. Alumnus Ken Watters plays trumpet and flugelhorn as a special guest on the CD. Jim wanted his former journalism professors to know “Cellarfull” is spelled with a double ‘l’ because the cover was designed by a Canadian artist.
