8/16 in a nutshell…

This week’s “Ooh” (“Opening Oldies Hour”) featured a Monkey Mix, a couple of Jamaican Independence songs, a preview of this week’s James Bond-themed 4(+1)@4, and Owen Gray mashin’ it! Among other things. Sherwood got into one of the far-outest Quincy Jones compositions imaginable, from the three-artist “Journey to Next” cd (works by Q.J., as well as Dizzy Gillespie and Benny Carter) issued on Lightyear. Also heard: the new posthumous Tokyo Jihen song from last week got reprised, among other things_ such as Steve Turre’s 12+min. epic “The Emperor”. In the Untitled Hour 3 (UH3? ‘Til I come up sith something better… ), after the aforementioned Bond 4(+1), John Shroeder gave us our weekly helping of “Phoenix City” in GotchaSKAvered.
