Catamount Community Radio - May 20, 2012

Oh, Radio, I can't quit you. Not that I want to.

Plastic sheeting across the floor today in the studio, but no problem. Just kinda weird. Apparently there is some sort of moisture issue.

No fixed themes today; no holidays, nobody died. So just a regular show. Mark Couture has been writing on Facebook about a disco hit called "Boogie Oogie Oogie." So I took his hint, and upped him one, playing not only "Boogie Oogie Oogie," but also "Hoochie Coochie Coo." How about that?

Freddie Hubbard covered "Wichita Lineman" again. As beautiful as his trumpet tooting is, I think next week I'll play the original Glen Campell side. What a great song. Tyler covered it at the jazz gig last month, bringing it back onto my radar.

For my blog entry on Nick Lowe I had to do a little research into his set list (Which I nerdily copied down as the show went on). It enabled me to discover a few new Nick Lowe gems that I didn't know about, including "Raining, Raining," "What Lack of Love has Done." So I played these tunes. As Jim Dandy dares me: How Lowe can I go? Pretty Lowe.

I didn't shy away from the honking R&B saxophone: Plas Johnson, Bobby Gregg, The Chavelles, great, full tenor solos on all. I've decided that since I'll never have great technique, I'm going to work on tone and soul in my own playing and be happy with that. I'll take my cue from these guys, but maybe try a few sixteenth-note runs here and there, just to let you know that I'm not immune to Sonny Stitt.

I played homage to the keyboard manipulators: Jelly Roll Morton, Thelonious Monk, Teddy Wilson.
