Catamount Community Radio - March 17, 2013

I really enjoyed bike riding with the issue yesterday; we're going on another ride today. I tightened up my rear disc brake, put air in our tires and oiled the chains. The issue has a sore knee and is cutting back on the running, thus her willingness to ride with me. She's strong, she pushes it up the hills while I tend to take my sweet time while ascending.

If you were to do some sort of data analysis to figure out which artists have played most frequently on the show over the years, certain names would certainly near the top: Sonny Rollins, Yusef Lateef, Oscar Peterson, Nick Lowe, Lester Young, Charlie Parker, and so on. I can almost guarantee you, though, that number one would be Duke Ellington. For me, the Duke of Ellington is endlessly interesting. Just imagine, playing stride piano in the twenties, leading the band at the Cotton Club in the thirties, and, in the sixties, jamming with John Coltrane. Three from Ellington today.

A set of Dinah Washington, including my favorite, "Fat Daddy" and her charming duet with Brook Benton, "Baby, You've Got What it Takes."



It won't be long and I'll be in New York, New York. I have tickets to see the James Moody Scholarship Benefit Concert & Celebration featuring, (I paste text cut from the WORLD WIDE WEB): pecial guest, Robert Klein, comedian, singer & actor

Andres Boiarsky, tenor sax
Tommy Campbell, drums
Sharel Cassity, alto & soprano sax
Bill Charlap, piano
Cyrus Chestnut, piano
Anat Cohen, flute & clarinet
Todd Coolman, bass
Paquito D'Rivera, clarinet & musical director
Greg Gisbert, tp.
Freddie Hendrix, tp.
John Lee, bass
Adam Nussbaum, drums
Renee Rosnes, piano
Gregory Porter, vocals
Yotam Silberstein, guitar
Gary Smulyan, bari sax
Steve Turre, tb.
Diego Urcola, tp.

I'm assuming that they are going to draw from this roster, not that everyone listed on it will play, but man, Bill Charlap, Cyrus Chestnut, Anat Cohen (whose records have been spinning a lot recently on this show), Adam Nussbaum, Spike's old man on the bass, a dude I met once met (Bari player Gary Smulyan - he encouraged me to attend his summer jazz camp!). Looking forward to it.





If you like your plenty rhythm, plenty swing, check out Catamount Community Radio, Sunday mornings, 10-12 (ET), on WWCU-FM, but not next week, since I'll be out of town.
