Chet Overall said they had a blast the first time they played live on my show, so we decided to do it again. The Lagniappe Brass Band, a new B.B. that does some very tight ensemble playing, will once again entertain, fun and good music this coming Friday morning, 8 o'clock CST, January the 28th, 2010. Tune in!
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'.
