A Turntable for One Fourth of July Celebration

Read "A Turntable for One Fourth of July Celebration" reviewed by H William Stine

What did you do for the Fourth of July? I celebrated with some traditional songs, plus the Buddy Rich Big Band for fireworks, Laverne Butler with a declaration of independence, tributes to Freddy Cole, Johnny Mandel, and Jim Pepper, and songs by Dave Frishberg, Randy Newman in celebration of the First Amendment. Looks like I'll be ...

How Sweet it Is

Read "How Sweet it Is" reviewed by H William Stine

Sweet. It's a word you don't hear much, especially now. Home Sweet Home? After four months of sheltering in place, what's so sweet about being home? Sweet Dreams? It's been months since I had one. Sweet Spot? I know what it used to mean, but now it means keeping six feet away from people. Sweet Nothings? ...

I See You; I Hear You

Read "I See You; I Hear You" reviewed by H William Stine

I think one of the responsibilities of having a microphone every week is knowing when to shut up. I did that (for the most part) this week and let singers and songwriters who for so many years have seen and heard with perception and then written with eloquent honesty about this painful struggle playing out once ...

A Musical Tribute To Caffeine

Read "A Musical Tribute To Caffeine" reviewed by H William Stine

Caffeine—voted the #3 most popular way to stay awake during my show—right after thinking of words that rhyme with “constellation" and reliving your latest root canal (I'll let you figure out the order). Two hours of songs about coffee and tea and the singers who enjoy them, plus, to sweeten the cup, I've tossed in several ...

Uncle Bill's Storytime

Read "Uncle Bill's Storytime" reviewed by H William Stine

Two hours of arguably the best of the best singers. I'd also argue that they are among the best of the best storytellers, too. This week was all about finding singers and songs that tell a story. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Playlist Cody Owen Stine “Paris Mismatch (Theme Music)" ...

A Musical Tribute to Laziness

Read "A Musical Tribute to Laziness" reviewed by H William Stine

I was feeling too lazy to come up with a theme for this week until I suddenly realized that I...well, I'm sure you're way ahead of me now so I'll stop there. Below is the playlist of the laziest songs, laziest excuses, and laziest fantasies I could squeeze into two hours, though I'm sure you'll agree ...

Groundhog Day

Read "Groundhog Day" reviewed by H William Stine

Explain to me again why we created a holiday to honor an ugly, destructive rodent and a misguided superstition while continuing to discredit the value of scientific facts in our lives? I based my Groundhog Day celebration on the classic movie and this rule: if you hear a song once this week, you're going to hear ...

“Old” School

Read "“Old” School" reviewed by H William Stine

Old hat; same old same old; you can't teach an old dog new tricks. I don't get it why people are so negative about the word, old. Some of our greatest songwriters have used that word in some of their best songs. And some of our youngest singers are giving new voice to these old songs. ...

Let's Talk About Me

Read "Let's Talk About Me" reviewed by H William Stine

This show has nothing to do with my personal life, so ignore the photo. How many songs can you think of with me in the title? I thought of this many to fill two hours: (Don't read the playlist if you want to guess the mystery vocalist.) Frank Sinatra “All of Me" from ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
