Jazz

6/28 in a nutshell…

Swinging for joy while searching for weapons, kiddy-o! The “Ooh” kicks things off in high style this week with Count Ossie, the Soul Bros. and the Muskyteers (backed by Lee Perry’s Upsetters!) before rollin’ into a little rocksteady. We bumpered a somewhat more fleshed-out Vibe Steady (Demo 2) which is currently the version we think we’ll release. The 2Tone era took over the last half of the hour before Mr. Funn got into some more early Sun Ra. Perez Prado, Henry Mancini, Perrey/Kingsley and more could also by heard wafting out of the Zero-G’s speakers while in orbit around Sherwood’s Planet. Back aboard the Rocket Ship, Cozy & the Cap’n picked 4-in-a-row that each clocked in under 2 minutes, and GotchaSKAvered brought Josh Roseman in to finish off Don Drummond’s Confucious for the month.Giuliano Palma came from Russia with love, Muscovites Cabernet Deneuve went to the moon, and Tim Armstrong and Skye Sweetnam swung into action while the night sky began to turn blue. And hey, if you just gotta be somebody’s baby, how ‘bout those Pepper Pots! Mmmmmmmm…
