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!
I heard a rumor that it might be the final Bandcamp Friday on May 7 so I went a little nuts! This rumor seems unfounded, though, based on posts from Bandcamp, where it looks like they may continue all the way through 2021. Or, at the very least, until live performances resume. Ah well, more music for me, anyway!
Among the new (to me) tunes include albums I didn’t already have from Tcha-Badjo, Blue Moon Marquee, and The Schwings Band, as well as new (to me) groups like Jacob Zimmerman, Thrift Set Orchestra, and Tatiana Eva-Marie.
And it all adds up to another great two hours of swing, jazz, and blues. Enjoy!
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!
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?
