Soul Man Ronn Easton of “Ronn Easton’s All Star Soul Revue” joined me today for the 2012 Lover’s Show in honor of Valentine’s Day. See below for list of love tunes(sorry, they’re not listed in order of play). We also had a guest in the studio: Award winning vocalist Maurice Jaycox stopped by to sing love music for the Rollin’ & Tumblin audience. He brought with him piano man, Tom West.

Twin cities keyboard player Mark Vandrmyde stopped by to talk about his new CD, “Fuzzy Math” and play a few selections from it. I also played classic tunes from Miles, MIngus, Dinah Washington, Stuff Smith The Missourians, and Vic Dickenson & Buck Clayton. Newer selections included music Catherine Russell, Hugh Masakela, and Davina & The Vagabonds.

2/9 in a nutshell
We’ve plugged “skeatles” on this show before, but this week, prepare to meet the real thing! The Skeatles, much like Ringo Ska, are an all-Beatles-covers ska band, this one HQ’d in Groningen, Netherlands, where this live gig recording originated. Our “fab” 4(+2)-in-a-row also had Ringo Ska in it, as well as Skapontas. GotchaSKAvered’s J-Lollipops week 2 was sung by Mie Nakao, we had another new Pinstripes track, Sherwood reprised Perez Prado’s epic “Voodoo Suite”, and the “Ooh” belatedly celebrated the same-day (this past Monday Feb. 6) birthdays of Bob Marley and Derrick Harriott. Jerk to the Ska!

A little bit of Bobby McFerrin opens today’s show. Also highlighting Ana Moura from Portugal.
