Double Hoodie Weather. Pretty Sweet!
Jazz Stains, CJSW 90.9 FM, Feb 6 2009
If you live in Calgary you’ve been enjoying the weather lately. What a run. Supposed to be 11 again today. Anyone wanna go tubing?
So, this morning we’ve got a bit of a mix bag. In the first hour I’m going to continue to explore some of the more dominant labels in jazz, picking up this week with the big solid, Verve. I left my indo Jazz records at home (it’s early when i leave the house to do this show), so the 2nd hour is going to feature Kenny Burrell (another Verve artist) as the full side with a mishmash of “my favs” thrown in after. The third hour I dive back into Verve with some tracks off of their remix series and some current playlist stuff.
Get out and enjoy the weather. The hedgehogs said it ain’t gonna last!
