Tonight was our annual All Jamaican special in memory of my late father-in-law Robert. And what a list of great reggae artists and groups: Desmond Dekker, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Lee Perry, Cornell Campbell, Burning Spear, Marcia Griffiths, Derrick Morgan, Toots & The Maytals, Alton Ellis, The Congos, The Abyssinians, Bim Sherman, and many more…
Here’s the deal: tons of new music hit stores this week. It was hard not to play all the highlights, but we only have three hours, and lots of artists coming to town and other news to share. So stream the archive around a half-hour in to the show, and listen for the long list of the best of this week’s new stuff. What we heard: Willie Murphy, Pieta Brown, Fela Kuti, and a lot more.
This week’s KC session kicks off with a potent shot of soul gospel dusty rhythm blues. Later we hear new material from Breakestra, Chris Joss, Lord Newborn The Magic Skulls, and The Stance Brothers out of funky Finland. We also check in with the red hot soundtrack/score to the brand new film Black Dynamite released by Waxpoetics. Get down!
