Some new tunes from Wynton Willie (!) as well as Willie Martinez and Derrick Garner, along with a smattering of classic tunes from MOnk, Cannonball, and Count Basie
The 1st of July brought a lot of hot weather to the Twin Cities so I used today’s show to encourage listeners to get out and enjoy that hot fun in the summertime. Music featured the cool champagne blues along with some hot city BBQ blues.
J. Otis Powell! – guest host
New releases featured from The Radio Netherland World Music Festival, vocalist Katie King, the band known as Banshees, and trumpter, Corey Wilkes.
Joe Demko came by to play live in the studio and talk about love songs – the songs he is singing and playing these days, and which can be found on his new CD.
More live music in the studio: Sweet Mama J and her husband King Creole(from Jack Knife The Sharps) played a little Americana for us. Sweet duet vocals.
