A Ray Charles tune in which Brother Ray doesn’t sing and David “Fathead” Newman doesn’t play tenor sax.
A ballad which is not so sedate, from possibly the best known New Orleans alto player.
Maybe half a dozen of the Crescent City’s altoists, the well-known and the less well known, as well as classic “old guard” players from the late '20s through the '50s and '60s.
These will be some of the features of this week’s show.
It won’t be three full hours of alto sax – though with the playlist I’ve put together I could do that and more – as it being the Morning Set I will need to trot out some new music, also, it being Friday morning the Brass Band Half Hour will crackle and pop as usual from 7:30 to 8:00. And my arts and entertainment partner has promised to be there sometime during 8 to 9 o'clock segment.
Tune in this Friday, tomorrow, July 26th, 2013 to WWOZ-FM 90.7, www.wwoz.org, or use your app!
