This week I am diverging from the formula, as much as there is one, to bring some other kinds of tunes. I always say that it’s jazz, swing, blues, and other amazing tunes from around the world. We’ve got some of those first things in the list, of course, because I love those things, but there is also a lot of ‘other’ in this show, because I love these things, too.
And I’m sure you will as well. Love it or hate it, leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
I’m not above making you wait until the second hour to hear it, but I promise that Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers playing ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’ is completely worth the wait. Such a great song and good message. Check out some of these other amazing resources to commemorate Black History Month.
Along with the usual good music I snuck in a little electroswing and electroblues this week. I find that I get tired of it if I try and do an entire show (which I did, once) but I do enjoy throwing it into a set here and there. What do you think? Also a few artists that I enjoy but don’t play very often because they are on big labels and I mainly try and stay with my indie label staples.
Enjoy, and thanks for listening, and let me know what you want to hear next week!
