"Ghost dog" - Rob Brown Ensemble (Crown trunk root funk)

This was a notable show in a few ways. Everything played was brand new, fairly new (last few months), newly released though recorded in years past, or newly re-released. So, the operative word was "new". Also, I played two vocal performances one-after-the-other; not being the biggest fan of vocal jazz, I don't think I've done that before.

Fave tracks this week: "Midnight in Berlin" by Rita Chiarelli (yes, it's a vocal track!); "Son of Mr. Bulldog" by the Mebusas (great cheesy organ); and "Candlelight (Margaret's theme)" by Rent Romus. I dug pretty much everything else too.

I'll be away for the next three shows. Naomi from Jazz For Quantum Cats will be taking my show on May 20 and Philip from Morning Joy will be doing the following two. I am in their debt. I'll be back on air on June 10.
