Two Interviews today one with “Blue Dog” a native American blues band fronted by a mother and her daughter. They have been nominated for two NAMA awards and are appearing in the final round of the Famous Dave’s Battle of the Blues. The other interview was with B3 Hammond organ master Billy Hollomon, who is returning to the Twin Cities after a hiatus of five years. He will be appearing at the Artists Quarter April 5th & 6th.
Today I played some interpretations of the music from Kind of Blue, including tracks by Donald Harrison, Suzi Stern, Chet Baker, Gerald Wilson, and Kurt Elling. I also played music from Willis Jackson, Horace Silver, Cal Tjader, and JoAnn Funk, and new tracks from Ben Sidran, Jeff Holmes Quartet, and Lisa Forkish. 45 of the week was The Peeper, by Hank Crawford.
Episode #399 Carol Chaos selects the music while Glen suffers from Vertigo, nods off from the pills the Doc gave him, and basically pushes the buttons.
Includes a SuperSet from Lenny Dee and a Paul Horn LP from deep within the vinyl ripening chamber! Ripe, under-ripe or OVERRIPE. You decide!
