Jistoray

Sounds a little bit like Paul Simon, a little bit like Lonnie Knight or even Nolan James. It's Jistoray entertaining us with an acoustic set.

Live music in the studio courtesy of Sena Elhrhardt and her band featuring: Ed Elhrhardt on guitar, Tim Hassler on drums and Steve Hanson on bass. They will be taking the road to Memphis in 2012 to represent Minnesota at the International Blues Challenge.

I had two sets of guests today. First up was Dean Magraw and Jay Epstein, of Red Planet, who visited to talk about their upcoming CD Release party for Space Dust. Then I was joined by Adam Linz, Jazz Coordinator at MacPhail Center for Music (and bassist for Fat Kid Wednesdays), and Quentin Tschofen, pianist for this year’s Dakota Combo, a group of HS students who, through an open audition, work with Linz. Linz Tschofen were in the studio to talk about the Combo’s upcoming concert at MacPhail and other appearances this summer.

5/5 in a nutshell…
Break into the light! Party at ground zero! And ska-doo-de-yah!
Working backwards from Hour 3, we inaugurated the May GotchaSKAvered Ska Cover-of-the-Month Club selection, Phoenix City, with the Judge Dread version (see embellished non-regulation playlist, posted in Announcements, for the Capt.‘s lowdown on this selection_ a rulebook loophole is invoked, ‘nuff said). Ska on the jazzy side made up the 4@4, b4 which was Sherwood B. Funn spending an hour in the Voov with great old sides by Googie Rene’, The Fireballs, Joe Meek and Peggy Lee, with relative newcomers Dengue Fever and Anna Calvi (both COMING SOON!! to 7th St. Entry and Triple Rock, respectively) contributing quite worthily. Opening the show: a well-rounded set of Jamaica’s finest ska oldies from the likes of Peter Tosh, Carlos Malcolm, the Mighty Vikings, and the even mightier Skatalites. Mash it!

It felt good to be back in the saddle again and especially good to be back at KFAI after being a judge for the 2012 International Blues Challenge Road To Memphis show. Sena Ehrhardt Band won the competition to represent Minnesota next year and next week she’ll be a guest on Rollin Tumblin.(Tom Hunter Jon Gunvaldson won the duo category.)
