I'd like to say that I had the foresight to schedule this week's World Music Show (8/6) around the spectacle that is the Summer Olympics. Sure, I can see it now, a full hour or two of Brazilian music; me spinning the tunes while wearing my Carnaval outfit. The list could go on an on. However, this week's show was centered around another spectacle--my birthday, and the upcoming BirthdayBash (Friday, August 5).
We hope you will join us for Time for the Blues this Saturday night (7/30/16) at 11:00 because John and I are planning a fast hour of great blues for you. We’ve got so much good music, I’m not really sure we can get it all into one hour.
I gave John the week off with regards to writing this week’s blog. Why? Because that’s the kind of guy I am. Plus, to paraphrase the great Otis Blackwell, “this is MY show.” At least this week.
On the next episode of the World Music Show (7/30), we'll tackle beats from the New York salsa band Los Hacheros, sample some new cuts of Fado from Ana Moura, and go back in time to hear some fuzzy Brazilian and Turkish guitar from a variety of bands, circa 1960s through 70s. But that's just the promo teaser for the show. For more meat, for more of the gooey good stuff, for more of the filler, you'll have to break open the crust, lift the top layer of bread, break that Oreo cookie open in order to learn more.
The Cypress String Quartet recently performed their final concerts together after a 20-year collaboration. As a culmination of the group’s work, they have released a CD set of the complete Beethoven string quartets.
