March 2014 Rhythm and Grooves Archives

With this coming Tuesday being Mardis Gras, or Fat Tuesday, I devoted the show to the music of New Orleans’ musicians, from Dr. John, to Ellis Marsalis, Nicholas Peyton, Louis Armstrong, John Boutte, Alvin “Red” Tyler, Evan Christopher, and more. The 45 of the week was actually a flex-disk: Comin’ Home, by the Sam Rivers Quartet.

Lots of newer music this week, including tracks by Bob Dorough, Carol Morgan, Jumane Smit, the Native Jazz Quartet, Lalama Brothers, Alfredo Rodriguez, and Jamaze. Today’s 45 of the Week was Sonny’s Back, by the Art Farmer/Benny Golson Quartet.
