Good Vibes December 2019
The December show has aired but it’s still in rotation for a rebroadcast on Wednesday, Dec 4 at 4:00p. You can still catch it at wwfm.org. It opens with a burner from MCcoy Tyner and Bobby Hutcherson, cools down with Cal Tjader’s “Black Orchid,” played by the Kevin Hart Latin Jazz Quintet, and heats up again with Arturo Serra’s “The Sealer,” from Nebulosa. I’m playing a track from Dave Stryker’s new Eight Track Christmas every half hour. Teddy Charles, Steve Hobbs, Matthias Lupri and David Friedman pitch in, (pun intended), as do Joel Ross, and Dave Samuels. In that order. That’s just the first hour. The second, Where Jazz Goes, opens with a new group from Sweden that recorded Phil Collins’ “Another Day in Paradise.” Amidst the holiday merriment the Collins tune about homelessness is from the album Four Wheel Drive. There’s so much more. Two ballads, “Blue Sojourn” by Behn Gillece, should touch your heart. The second is the show closer, “Everything Must Change,” played by Jay Hoggard and written by Benard Eghner. As always, IMHO, an eclectic variety of the very best of the vibraphone.
