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:
August 19 – Johnny Mercer — Tin Pan Alley lyricist and songwriter, and co-founder of Capitol Records — is the thread that binds the musicians in this morning’s Fascinating Rhythms show.
August 12 – The beautiful moon these last few evenings inspired me to put together this moon-themed Fascinating Rhythms show. More than 20 artists weigh in, from The Lennon Sisters and Anita O’Day to Bruno Mars, Elton John, and Creedence Clearwater Revival. You’ll be all set to celebrate the full moon on Thursday.
August 5 – You’ll find lots of R&B/soul on this Fascinating Rhythms show (including Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Leela James, Al Green, and Smokey Robinson). A little funk with Ike & Tina Turner and James Brown. And a touch of jazz from Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, and Dee Dee Bridgewater.
July 29 – It’s a family affair on Fascinating Rhythms this morning: Nat King Cole, and his daughter Natalie Cole. You’ll hear selections from more than 50 years of music — from the recordings of the Nat King Cole Trio in the 1940’s, to Natalie Cole’s ‘Still Unforgettable’ album, released in 2008.
July 22 – Thanks to DJ Jim who stepped in to sub — and put together a terrific Fascinating Rhythms show for us. Click on the link below to give it a listen.
