Nicola Miller stopped by to preview her new CD and talk about her upcoming CD release party at the Artists Quarter. I also played music by Charles Kynard, Miles Davis, Big Joe Turner, Sun Ra, Jelly Roll Morton, and Duke Ellington, as well as new music from The Clayton Brothers, Dan Block, and Joe Magnarelli. Don’t forget the Mingus Moment, featuring An Open Letter to the Duke.

10/7 in a nutshell…
A Skatalites-centric oldies set led into a hop-skip-jump between the 2Tone era and the 21st century (from The Selecter to Umbrella Bed, in other words) winding up with the 2Tech ska groove of Perfume (who don’t do much ska, but when they do they have lotsa fun) just before we went Transkalactic. Sherwood was neck-deep in 45s again, spinning li’l licorice pizzas by everybody from The Islanders to Pete Rugolo to Hank Marr. Blue Beat was the theme of the 4(+1), and Millie’s Smash-hit cover of an old Barbie Gaye record was the Lollipop Of The Week. Smash, Philips, Island… take your pick. Whichever label you find it on, it’ll be… Smashing!

For Pledge Drive we have no use of Studio 5 so we bring soloists in to the intimacy of Studio 4.

This week it was Dan Jass for the first hour and then for the second hour we were entertained by Eliza Blue accompanied by Mickel.

Check out Dan Jass here

Things happen so fast during pledge drive that it’s hard to keep track of the songs PLUS I only play partial tune bits anyway. So no play list this week. Thanks for your support!
