Farvel Norge, hej Danmark!!!!!! Echoes of Syttende Mai and a spate of Danish tunes to herald Danish Day 2010. As usual the celebration will take place the first Sunday in June. Happening at the Danish Center, E Lake St and W River Road beginning at 10AM. All are welcome.
A ton of heavy new dub…and other fun new things this week. The biggest, heaviest new dub arrived in the form of Dr. Echo’s new dub album attributed to his former group The Defendants. Also excellent new rootical vibes from The Manor, Kabir La Amlak, Winston Jarrett, Tony Dubshot, Citizen Sound (with the Rise Ashen remix of “Trouble”), and a number of artists on the new compilations “Italian Dub Community – Showcase Vol. 2” and “Revolutionary Dub Vibrations – Chap. 2”
new Peg Simone, New Black Keys, New gemma Ray… more and more new stuff and more than just one song from each. I think it’s good to celebrate a new album that is an actual ALBUM with merit by having the whole thing being played…. don’t you think?
A Good portion of the show was dedicated to the music of Hank Jones, who passed over on Sunday. I played music where he was a member of the band, led the band, and a few examples of him as an accompanist for singers like Nancy Wilson, JOhnny Hartman, and Abbey Lincoln.
