Today’s show was a Christmas present going out to my performing friends who make the Twin Cities their home. Make it your New Year’s resolution to get out and support live music. My Christmas wish for all of us: Peace On Earth!
paying attention to James Moody (March 26, 1925 – December 9, 2010) an American jazz saxophone and flute player best known for his hit Moody’s Mood for Love, an improvisation based on I’m in the Mood for Love; in performance, he often improvised vocals for the tune.
12/16 in a nutshell…
Listen for a pretty cool 3-tune mix during Hr. 1_ Otis Gayle into (Harry Hosono’s) Tin Pan Alley into Li’l Gizzelle! Hour 2 find: Rosemary Clooney’s original Mangos (we’ve been known to drop Shiina Ringo’s cover Papaya Mango into the mix and one of these weeks we’ll play ‘em back-to-back). In Hr. 3, the 4@4 tells you to do something! … whether it’s Turning Around, dancing the Jamaica Ska, Just Saying Yeah!, or simply Moving Your Feet. Lollipop a la français was served up by Agnes Loti, and we hear another tune from the Prizefighters new debut. Follow their sound_ it’s heavyweight!
After a record snowfall here in Minnesota, everyone has been doing the cool, blues walk….through snow drifts. I had the blues so I thought I’d share it with my listeners…the blues, the whole blues and nothin’ but.
