It might not be summer yet officially, but it’s sure feeling that way around here. Enjoy a little Sunshine from Avalon Jazz Band, a little Summer Song from Geoff Bull and the Finer Cuts, and lots and lots of other great swing, jazz, and blues tunes with this week’s show!
Cats & Dinosaurs make great swing music, and they’re also not afraid to include some serious social commentary in their songs, as the title of this week’s show can attest.
Check them out over on Bandcamp, and enjoy some more great music including some more Swedish swingers, Gentlemen & Gangsters, along with bands out of Turkey, Tel Aviv, Luthuania, France, and lots of other cool places!
Il faut que ça swing!
My new music discovery this week was a Port Townsend band that is (probably) no longer together but really kicked, Famous Lucy. Listen in for a couple of their tracks, along with some great music including classics like Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday. I usually play newer versions of their tunes, but this week we go back to the originals!
Second Mixcloud show, which seems to be working out well. Give me a follow over there if you have not already, that is where the music is going to live from here on out.
I’ll keep posting shows on the site, of course, and this is also a good space to make song requests, which I will try and play!
Not a real big theme this week, just lots of good music, and a few little nods to St. Patrick’s Day. Maybe it actually is easy being green?
