Jazz

3/22 in a nutshell…
Real gone, man! Plus a peppering of Ska-Like from the likes of Frankie Ford and Duke Ellington, some Caltone reissues, and an unannounced back-to-back comparison of pre-Wailers Marley (Do You Still Love Me) and Derrick Morgan’s strikingly similar-sounding take on “By The Light of the Silvery Moon”, title shortened to “The Moon”. Past the “Ooh”, Sherwood B. Funn fills the Zero-G with everyone from Terry Snyder to David Carroll, from Zavier Cugat to Milton Banana… and he can’t resist some Ska when it’s Giuliano Palma doing Bond… James Bond! A Mutant Frogs set makes up the 4(+1)@4, Billie Tam straight outa HK’s gotchaSKAllipopped, and the spirit of King Stitt (r.i.p., King, we’ll miss ya!) chimes in. The Big ‘C’ claimed him on Jan. 31st, and we’ll mount a proper tribute next week… stay tuned.

3/15 in a nutshell…
We’re back, and glad to be welcoming you aboard! The “Ooh” went time-hopping, starting off with some ’60s instros with “Ska” in the title, and winding up with Dr. Buzzard associate Gichy Dan and his Beachwood #9 outfit, after a glitchy detour through 2Tone which was simply… madness. Suggs & crew’s Prince Buster cover simply wouldn’t play straight through no matter which deck we fed it into, so Georgie Fame’s mid-60s remake had to get the job done. But hey_ how ‘bout that Gichy Dan! Meanwhile in the “Voov”, Sherwood dropped a cool, laid-back MFSB cut bearing the oddly-Kraftwerkian sounding title “Human Machine” for openers. A “curveballs” set involving “not THOSE” Scorpions, Eagles, or Crystals kicked off with… not THAT Fela! A Lionel Hampton/Shiina Ringo DJ mix played us into the 4:00 hour where the 4(+1)-in-a-row set was titled “Bad Boys, Rudies & Miscreants”. GotchaSKAvered fed us our first Hungarian “Lollipop”, we went juggling with TSPO, and we dug some more Dan (Gichy, not Steely) before winding up with a Mutant Frogs set… Ribbit, ribbit!
