The majestic EZ sounds of Nelson Riddle, the whistling prowess of Kelly’s Heroes, the forgotten and almost loathsome organ groans of Orville Thomas, and the sheer ridiculousness of the Mary Kaye Trio and their soundtrack to a Hula lesson. And that’s not even 1 / 7th of the playlist!
In celebration of International Women’s Day (March 8th) and National Women’s History Month, the Echo Chamber presented its annual “Beautiful Sounds of Women…Around the World” special. And what a varied list of

What a joy to have Carrie Elkin:http://www.carrieelkin.com in studio to celebrate her fifth album, Call it My Garden. We also heard music from Exene Cervenka’s new album, gave tickets away to Pierre Bensusan at the Cedar, and got Lynn’s morning started right with some highly-danceable Quintron Miss Pussycat in advance of Mardi Gras.
