Jazz

11/11 in a nutshell…
In Hour 1’s major highlight following the oldies set, jazz piano wunderkind Hiromi made her RSST debut by sitting in with Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra on their brand-new track Suinkikutsu, from the ep [Goldfingers] on Avex. Sherwood required the Cap’n‘s help to get rolling, but roll he did, with everybody from Tsuyoshi Kawakami to Lionel Hampton to The Tarantulas(?). A whopping 11-in-a-row in hour 3 consisted entirely of title tracks, and fictitious animated character Fizzy delivered one of the hottest Lollipops on record!!! we’re m-m-m-e-e-l-l-l-t-t-i-n-n-n-n-ggg….

Elise Witt, Sara Greer, and Ann Potter were my guests this day. They were putting on a concert, along with two other women, called Global, Local, and Homemade songs. to celebrate all kinds of songs and include community singing. I also played music from Wes Montgomery, Tony Guerrero, Pete Malinverni, Jackie McLean, and Paqutio D’Rivera. Today’s Mingus Moment featured Duke Ellington’s Sound of Love from the Changes I album.

11/4 in a nutshell…
Hour 1 hops, skips and jumps from pre-Wailers Marley (early Beverleys stuff) to pre-YMO Hosono (J-Ska from ’76, y’all) with a pre-Rocksteady Stop That Train and Don Drummond’s pre-mortem Memorial as stops along the way. It’s the pre-Sherwood’s Planet set!
Speaking of Mr. Funn, he finished some Cozy Cole business started 2 weeks ago (Topsy I II) by playing the little-heard Turvy I and Turvy II. 3 spooky surf bands, 3 Suns, and some Good Old Progressive Jazz later, we had an Alcatraz Peace Pipe, some Funk Rings, Mooncussers (air-safe, y’all) and more mid-‘70s Harry Hosono magic. The Cap’n and Cozy came back honoring an old request for some Aggrolites as part of a Ska Bands Do Reggae 4@4, and Ernest Ranglin’s Lollie-of-the-Week was sung ably by Alana Davis… and just before The End, Mr. Trouble meets The Munsters!
