Still working through new music from the past few weeks, including from Reuben Wilson, Dr. Michael White, Mike Longo, Ellen Martin, Joan Stiles, Christian McBride, and Matt Slocum. Classic tunes from Yusef Lateef, Jazz Crusaders, Coleman Hawkins, and of course, Charles Mingus.
10/13 in a nutshell…
Bad Manners GotchaSKAvered this week, the hometown crowd took over the 4@4, Steady Earnest got off on the Good Foot, Sarah McAllister made us all go Stop, hey, what’s that sound… ? and Israel Vibration reminded us of the real Christopher Columbus (Rip an’ run off… ). Meanwhile on the Voov, Sherwood B. Funn mixed up a heady brew of Saturday morning cartoon themes (King Kong/Tom of T.H.U.M.B.), steel orchestras (Katzenjammers and Highlanders straight from T’n‘T) and electrolounge (Mr. Excitement). A steel orchestra (playing Byron Lee’s Jamaica Ska) also made it into the Ooh alongside Don Drummond and Sugar Dandy.
It was a day of mostly new music, catching up on releases from the last couple of weeks, including brand new music by Reuben Wilson, Joan Stiles, David Murray, James Carter, Chip White, and Harris, Sanchez, and Scott, as well as music from Patricia Barber, and an interview with singer Rondi Charleston, not to forget the Mingus Moment.
