7/29 in a nutshell…
So, like I’m hanging out in a favorite snack stop on my way to the show one night, and I’d swear I’m hearing some old, old ska record over the house PA.
Hmmm… I thought to myself_ …sounds early ’60s, but it doesn’t sound Jamaican, it sounds US… Well, turns out it was US… Gary US Bonds, to be exact! I’m sure I’m not the first to notice the ska-like qualities of Dear Lady Twist, a 1961 Legrand release that kicks the first hour into warp-drive this week. Sherwood slapped a bunch of 45s he bought in a bar
onto a cd, brought it to the show, promptly misplaced it, and established orbit around his Planet to the tune of Lalo Schifrin instead. And then Cal Tjader. And finally, the 45s! Worth the wait… an off-the rails 4(+3)@4 set changed its theme midstream, after the first song to be exact, and also listen for cuts from 2 entirely different cds called the new authentic …and wunnuvem’z this week’s Lollipop!
