Well, after a work trip that covered the past three major holidays, I'm back at WWOZ for another edition of "Jazz from the French Market." First of all, my sincere thanks to Jeff Greenberg who filled in for me. Jeff, you did an amazing job. There's been a lot of new music to come out that I'm itching to play.
Vincent Broussard, saxophonist with the Rebirth Brass Band , has a new CD, " Rebirth Revisited ", a Slow Drag Production. He's gonna visit with me, & we'll talk about this new project,& of course, play some things from it. I hope you'll join us ! This Thursday, Jan. 13, 10a.m. ish CST
What is Alt-Xmas? It's Xmas music without the perky holiday cheer, Xmas with sass, sauciness and satire: talking back to Santa, sexing up to Santa, mamboing to Santa, all kinds of bluesin' and soulin' rather than carolin'.
This next Thursday, I will be honored to have , both Dave Bartholomew & Bob French, visit me in " my living room ".
Dave was recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, & it's also his birthday on the 24th, ( Bob's is the 27th )
So we will have alot to talk about .&, of course, I will be playing some Dave & Bob music, Do listen !!
Tune in from 6 to 9 a.m. CST, Friday, December 17, 2010. There will be a few conventional Christmas songs, done in an unconventional way, but most of the show will celebrate what I consider to be the main messages of the season, Peace on earth, and Joy to the world.
Join me at The Jazz Crossroads for the Christmas show!
