Jazz

8/26 in a nutshell…
All oldies the first hour, except for bumpers_ a set bursting with the sounds of Derrick Morgan, Lee Perry, the Mighty Vikings, Jack Sparrow, some outfit called The Beans, and more! Then Sherwood B. Funn indulges his vibraholic side with shots of Kurt Weil, Emil Richards (in the Paul Horn Quintet) and whoever that cat is on Tk. 10 of the Lucy Woodward album! The 4@4 salutes The Ska Parade, and Betka Stankova sings about her Libi Bob. Then it’s Tarzan, a bald guy, dolphins, Bo Evil and Tamio Okuda with TSPO blowing up the rest of the show. Boom!

8/19 in a nutshell…
A very rocksteady-centric Hour 1 with some uptempo pepper spicing things up roughly ‘round the :30 mark, give or take. Sherwood B. Funn gets {HOOKED!} on Lucy Woodward (just like she probably figured he wood) in a set sprinkled with goodies from Perez Prado, Tito Puente, Cal Tjader, Rumba Club and more. Rockin’ Steady Across the Pond describes the 4@4, and the Coyabalites, counting Ernest Ranglin as a member, feed us this week’s Lollipop. After the UFO crash, we cross the other pond and get J-centric for a while. EnSka, anyone?
