9/29/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

_9/29 in a nutshell..._
The end of summer, the end of September, and The End as a 4(+1)@4 theme! Indeed, even the GotchaSKAvered's September selection is about The End, and the overall theme extended beyond that! Not to worry, though, we're far, far, far from the end of RSST... you can have my ship when you pry the controls from my cold, dead fingers!:^) After Hours Tries It Again, TSPO Opens Our Eyes and Bonnie Pink _doesn't_ get Chrissie Hynde wrong! Backing up a bit, Sherwood delivers Perez Prado's near-8-minute epic Mosaico Cubano, Arthur Lyman's exotic Vera Cruz and the singularly unique Andre Popp's Bloody Serenade. The Ooh, or Opening Oldies Hour, included choice covers of Long Day Short Night and A Rockin' Good Way, as well as the Blues delivered by Rico's British outfit The Rudies, just before Baba Brooks got upstaged by his piano player at a Jam Session... WOW, anybody know who that cat was? As Granville Williams might have said, he was Wailin'! That cut really fades too soon...
