Blast off with us for another trip across the Skalaxy, Mr. Eastwood!! Move Your Feet in the general direction of Paradise, but watch out for that Dance Crasher along the way. Be quick, ‘cuz the walls are about to come tumbling down… it’ll be Shocking, and that’s just the oldies set! When we dock with Sherwood’s Orbiting Party Palace, you can Waltz with Koop. (the dot’s part of the name) before kicking back and Lounge-ing to sounds ranging from Arthur Lyman to Senor Coconut, Jimmie Haskell to Victor Feldman, you get the picture… and we kick off your flight back home with four Ladies of Ska who didn’t make last week’s set before encountering a rogue Moon blasted out of Earth orbit by its own nuclear waste dump way back in ’99, delaying this week’s Lolli rerun (Ernest Ranglin, O.D., with Alana Davis). Skabrazooka!
Some music from the pen of Harry Warren, as performed by Coltrane, Prez, and Billy Eckstine, and from a new album of undiscovered standards by the David Berger Jazz Orchestra. Also: some Basie, Gerry Mulligan, and new songs from organist Jared Gold, guitarist Sheyl Bailey, and more….
