Fascinating Rhythms

On Mon from 06:30 am EST to 08:30 am EST
With: Kathy G

I’ll be playing lots of soulful, jazzy, bluesy stuff – along with whatever else I think will get you (and me!) up and moving on a Monday morning.

What you’ll hear in the Audio Archive links below:

January 13 – Trios are the focus of this morning’s show. First up, the Oscar Peterson Trio, which has introduced Fascinating Rhythms for the last 5 years. You’ll also hear the Nat King Cole Trio, Sarah Vaughan & Her Trio, and Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross.
Note: tinyurl.com/oscar-peterson-dick-cavett is the link to the Oscar Peterson/Dick Cavett interview I mentioned on the air.

– This morning I’m playing jazz artists introduced to me by listeners (Hugh Laurie, Jon Batiste, and Mariza), along with a newly discovered album by Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass. 
December 30
– On today’s Fascinating Rhythms, you’ll hear Portugal’s most famous fado singer Amalia Rodrigues, and several of her American contemporaries: Alberta Hunter, Bessie Smith, W.C. Handy, and Blind Lemon Jefferson.
December 23
