February 2016 Rhythm and Grooves Archives

During the first half of the show I played music from Steve Yeager, Lee Morgan, Charles Lloyd, Tierney Sutton, Ira Hill and Sonny Stitt. During the second half of the show I played music from New Orleans artists for Mardis Gras, including Louis Armstrong, the Dirty Dozen, Astral Project, Herlin Riley, Trombone Shorty, and the Rebirth Brass Band.

Started out today with a couple of compare/contrast tunes: Black Velvet (Doncha Go Away Mad), by Jerry Weldon with the vocal version by Vicky Mountain, and Centerpiece, as done by Milt Jackson and John Coltrane and Scott Hamilton with the Jeff Hamilton Trio. Also played music by Gerry Mulligan and Ben Webster, Irv Williams, Rebecca Kilgore, Fuzzy Math, Yusef Lateef, and Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah. The Artist of the Week as Harry Sweets Edison.
