Glows in the Dark is a band led by Richmond-based guitarist and composer Scott Burton. The band has the instrumentation of a typical jazz quintet, but the music is anything but typical. The repertoire ranges from cinematic grooves inspired by soundtracks of horror flicks, crime films and kung-fu movies to more abstract avant-garde textures.
So, it's come to this--cryptic headlines as a way to get your attention. Well, yes and no. Consider it a teaser or an invitation for you to dig a little deeper to see just what-the-what is up with this week's World Music Show (3/16). Now the question is, should I divulge its meaning now? Or drag it out like a sad punchline to a not so funny joke?
Once in awhile, I like to showcase a band or "thing," that I think deserves a little more attention. I like to call these "mini-tributes." And, depending on the artist/band or "thing," I can either dedicate a whole hour to this showcase or I can put together a "mini-tribute." On this week's World Music Show (3/9), it'll be the latter.
We may be on late, but when you hear tracks from the new CD from Ben Harper wih Charlie Musselwhite on Time for the Blues this week (3/3/13), your'e going to want to GET UP! This collaboration is one of the best new blues releases of the year (so far) and has hit #1 on the Billboard Blues Charts! Read on...and don't miss this show!
One of the good things about this week's The World Music Show (3/2) is that not only do we get to bounce around the planet like we're playing musical hopscotch but they'll be times that we can also jump back and forth through the decades. And that's just what we're going to be doing on this week's show. It'll almost be like we're plugging numbers and letters in from an old style Juke Box that has songs from around the world.
