6/12/2014 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

6/12 in a nutshell…

The Ooh had a block of 5 old skas on the Worldisc label, led off by a favorite Lee Perry cut, “Wishes of the Wicked.” 2 more “Wicked” tracks were to be found among the five, Neville Esson’s “Wicked and Dreadful” and Wicked Man” by Shenley Duffus. And speaking of wicked, who should turn up in Sherwood’s playlist but Satan… and on holiday at that! Big-bandleader Tommy Dorsey and his fellow trombone star Warren Covington have the lowdown. That follows the calendar-album segment featuring the psychedelically percussive Hal Blaineand mallet master Emil Richards, who both played on Blaine’s album (Psychedelic Percussion) and recorded his own (Stones). “Trippin’ Out” and “Moonstone” are their June selections. In the Home Stretch, “James Bond” got the live Selecter treatment, from Out On The Streets – Live in London, The Melodians bookended an all-‘70s “Ska’s Lost Decade” 5@5:05 set, and there were back-to-back movie and TV themes served up piping (and skankin’) hot by Tsuyoshi Kawakami and Pannonia Allstars. More wicked grooves next time… tune in and stay tuned!
