Read "Listener Favorites & DrJ’s Birthday Blowout" reviewed by Marc Cohn

It's time for our recurring '5' (as in Show 365) party, listener favorites from Shows 351-360.

Organ Grinder Swing–Adrienne Fenemor, Little Charlie, Matthew Kaminski, Music Soup, King Louie & LaRhonda Steele

Read "Organ Grinder Swing–Adrienne Fenemor, Little Charlie, Matthew Kaminski, Music Soup, King Louie & LaRhonda Steele" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

There are certain things that evoke memory more than smells and sound. Unfiltered Lucky Strike cigarettes, just lit, make me think of my dad's office in the 1960s. Unfiltered Lucky Strike cigarettes, iced-cold Budweiser in the bottle, and organ jazz and blues, make me think of what dark, urban dives should smell, taste and sound like ...

Jimmy Ponder: His Recorded Output

Read "Jimmy Ponder: His Recorded Output" reviewed by Colter Harper

Jazz history has been intimately tied to its recorded output. Styles and genres are defined by landmark records, which stand responsible for representing the diffuse activities and artistic visions of a given musical community or individual. However, recordings are not simply glimpses of past musical realities but rather images of those realities filtered through various “lenses." ...
