This week’s opening oldies set mutates into a tribute to Ringo (both Starr AND Shiina!) with the Skatalites and TSPO providing musical backing. Sherwood spins 2 more Shiina tunes, Mastretta’s lo-o-o-ongie First Exit, and heads for Adelaide by way of Bill Evans and Eddie Costa. Then a 4(+1) at 4 featuring 1st-generation ska from outside Jamaica… with Ska in both the lyrics and song title! Lollipop Week 35 is sung by German Heidi Bachert.
New music from Bill Heid, Nancy Harms, Ben Allison. Old music from Ike Quebec and Dexter Gordon. Classic stuff from Duke Ellington, Anita O’Day w/Gene Krupa, Slim Gaillard, and the Delta Rhythm Boys. And more….
