August 4, 2021: Celebrating Tamar Korn

Tamar’s birthday was July 29 (which is actually a happy coincidence!) – but I actually decided to focus on her in this show because I realized just how many tracks I had with her singing that were with entirely different groups and in different settings. Like this lovely little personal concert she did last year with Mamie Minch …

Lots of great music all around, of course, but you’ll hear Tamar singing in various tracks with various bands, such as Gaucho, Eli & the Chocolate Factory, Professor Cunningham and his Old School, and Mona’s Hot Four. And, of course, with Mamie Minch, again, because they are both amazing.

You can find Tamar on Instagram and Facebook.

Enjoy!

June 2, 2021: Sunshine

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!

April 28, 2021: Almost Famous

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!

April 14, 2021: I Double Dare You

Another week, another two hours of fun music. Kicking things off with a little Spiderman action from the band, Babik. At one point I thought this band included Django’s youngest child, Babik, but it’s actually just named after him. That’s cool too, though, and they have that gypsy jazz thing that I like so much, especially for the Spiderman theme!

Spring has definitely sprung around here, which means it is sunny and beautiful, and that I need to go and mow the yard before it gets out of control. May your seeds be sprouting and your legs be swinging!
