Carnival season never ends on Ash Wednesday on Global Beat – the dance party continues with New Orleans Brass sounds, and Trinidad-Tobago Soca Pan music and a taste of Brasil. Lots more as well – including some Nina Simone for her birthday.
A bunch of new stuff tonight, from the Dubwise.ru Vol 1. collection from the SubOutDubIn netlabel, to the first release on the new Matxino label by the First Light Orchestra, to the newest single (Trouble) from Citizen Sound. The other highlight of the show was part 1 of the TEC FM special mix from Trevor The Techician McKenzie.
Mardi Gras and carnival music mixed in with new songs from Eleni Mandell, K’Naan, and Cool Disposition. Gave away a copy of the new live album from The Christine Rosholt Quintet, too. Fun way to start Tuesday!
Yowie! 8 artists make their debut on the show tonight! Plus Dick Hyman’s Fantomfingers, another Readers Digest Box Set from the Goodwill, and a request for a bankrupt corporation: the MUZAK Corporation.
