Full Moon Hacksaw #1729 (Hour 1 & 2) - 03-19-2020

From KRDP | Part of the Full Moon Hacksaw series | 01:59:58

Radio has been the go-to in any world crisis now for one hundred years. Emergency information notwithstanding, radio becomes important for humor, entertainment, music, any diversion to keep this old world going while it’s shut down. Our theme this week addresses much of this, beginning with a spirited arrangement of Sonny Stitt music by of all artists the USAF. It’s not always easy retaining the spirit of Fats Waller into later based styles for sure but we give pianist Benny Green his chance. Much need now is ESP, in our case by Duke Pearson. Next, up-tempo, no down-in-the-alley or crying-in-your beer blues, from Amos Milborn followed by T-Bone Walker…catch phrase: “Lookin forward to a better future forget about the past.” New releases as Organ quartet Guitar Elation jams Brazilian, not named for the delivery truck at your door so much lately, but rather “Amazonas.” Then old timey swing but new sung Callie Cardamon. Challenging big-band Afro-Cuban All Stars music is scrambled by time signature. For hour number two this week, new releases continue beginning with saxophonist Christopher Hollyday, then the stone-cold blues feature from the 1980s, Sonny Rhodes followed by Cash McCall. Vintage music comes from Cannonball Adderley with the relegated-to-home theme, then a focus on big band. First from Joe Henderson’s 1996 release, then a new release from Michael Zibler followed by the very earliest Thad Jones-Mel Lewis. Anita O’Day joins Cal Tjader with no-truer words delaying spring, pianist Kenny Barron decries what we need most, “Without Deception.” Finally the next in our late pianist McCoy Tyner tribute, a duet with violinist Stephane Grappelli of all people. Constantly re-inventing the tire, Hacksaw Jazz.

Full Moon Hacksaw #1883 (Hour 1 & 2) - 03/02/2023

From KRDP | Part of the Full Moon Hacksaw series | 02:00:01

We made it to jazz radio show # 2000, sure glad of that. It’s only taken 10, 20, 30 40 + years to do it, how much longer should we go? This episode from sponsor West Side Blues begins with Gene Harris and the Three Sounds from the Penthouse. One new release from Planet D Nonet for Duke Ellington and then it’s back to the latter’s triumph at Newport 1956, with un-intended stereo sound. Three more recent releases get spun from the all-lady Astara Project to Karl Silver’s trombone to the bass of Buster Williams as leader. To wrap hour # one, our temper tantrum is channeled thru Ray Anderson’s trombone freakout, bringing back memories of seeing this forward artist touring behind this very CD release back in the day. Our second hour of live celebration picks up with a trifecta in blues, Albert King, Ray Charles and James Cotton. Culture shock is achieved with our segue into NY vocalist and radio presenter Mary Foster Conklin presenting just the right mellow for early in the morning. Thelonious Monk performs his tribute to Bud Powell, and along for the audition is singer Jon Hendricks, unaware of being recorded, and receiving nothing but notoriety in the process. For genuine 17-piece big band we turn to Terry Gibbs from the vibraphone, and, oops, we almost forgot the request for Freddy King out of order. To preview Jazz Appreciation Month in April, we demonstrate a global attitude from Morocco provided by Jivko Petrov, then harken back to Black History Month in February with Anthony Branker & Imagine containing a profound, moving and appropriate commentary recitation by Ms. Alison Crockett. We conclude with one of the biggest projects by Miles Davis, backed by the Gil Evans Orchestra, Sketches of Spain. Takes care of our minds the moment before the world awakens to go mad, Hacksaw Jazz.

The Retro Cocktail Hour #981

From Kansas Public Radio | Part of the The Retro Cocktail Hour series | 01:58:00

The Retro Cocktail Hour is a finger-snapping, hip-shaking blend of space age bachelor pad music, tiki tunes, private eye jazz and other incredibly strange music.


The music is served "shaken, not stirred" every week on The Retro Cocktail Hour.  Here you'll find vintage recordings from the dawn of the Hi-Fi Era - imaginative, light-hearted (and sometimes light headed) pop stylings designed to underscore everything from the backyard barbecue to the high-tech bachelor pad. 
Among the artists featured on The Retro Cocktail Hour are lounge legends like Frank Sinatra and Juan Esquivel; tiki gods Martin Denny and Les Baxter; swinging cocktail combos featuring The Three Suns and Jack "Mr. Bongo" Costanzo; and mambo king Perez Prado.  The series also spotlights up and coming lounge/exotica artists, including Waitiki, Ixtahuele, the Tikiyaki Orchestra, Big Kahuna and the Copa Cat Pack, the Voodoo Organist and many more.
Each hour of the show is discrete and can be used in a variety of ways - a weekly two-hour show; a weekly one-hour show; or twice weekly one-hour shows.  Custom promos and fundraising pitches available on request.
Join host Darrell Brogdon at the underground martini bunker for the sounds of space age pop and incredibly strange music!

Soft_machine_small This week's show starts off with a Beatles set and includes an Advanced Psych segment consisting entirely of tracks recorded at a certain independent Albuquerque, New Mexico studio that no longer exists. The rest of the show isn't quite so self-indulgent. See https://thehermitrambles.blogspot.com/ for complete playlist.
