Artist Track Comments
Big Guitars from Texas  Boomerang   Favoriting For years, I was the Friday morning man at WFMU and the segue from Nachum's shabbos song to Big Guitars is forever seared into my brain-- although you miss it on the archive! 
Dick Dale  Third Stone from the Sun   Favoriting The surf guitar master pays tribute to Jimi Hendrix; this tune is the highlight of Dick Dale's 1996 "Calling Up Spirits" album on Beggars Banquet 
Nighthawks w/ Pinetop Perkins & Bob Margolin  Two Bugs & a Roach   Favoriting 1980s DC blues band with help from two Muddy Waters alums; from "Jacks & Kings"-- two (vinyl) volumes combined into one CD 
Albert Washington  Hold Me Baby   Favoriting He played the blues clubs in Cincinnatti, recorded in the 60s & 70s, moved to Long Island, recorded again in the 90s, died in 1998. 
Tony Allen  Ise Nla   Favoriting Fela is gone but Tony Allen keeps the afrobeat going strong 
Amadou et Mariam  Dogons   Favoriting This song, from the great duo from Mali, is on their 1999 "Sou Ni Tile" album 
Charles Lloyd w/ Keith Jarrett  Sorcery   Favoriting I lost the album I bought back in the 60s but found a copy at a WFMU record fair; a KJ tune, although it is attributed to CL on the Keith Jarrett anthology! 
Yela  Dodosya   Favoriting A band from Reunion Island, in the Indian Ocean; found on the "Rough Guide to Planet Rock" 
Hamza El Din  Ollin Arageed   Favoriting The great Nubian oud player from Sudan died this past year; Mickey Hart produced the album and came to WFMU in the 80s to plug it

Serena Jones w/ Emiko Tada  Summer Wind   Favoriting Her website says she was born Joan Shaw in Virginia in 1944 but she is listed as the vocalist on "He Knows How to Hucklebuck" by Paul Williams, recorded in 1949! See her website (salenajones.com) or email me (stevek@wfmu) to discuss this fascinating musical story 
Salena Jones & Antonio Carlos Jobim  Dindi   Favoriting Salena got her new name from SArah Vaughn & LENA Horne. She now lives in England and performs mostly in Europe and Asia-- although she did a nice album with Jobim
