PLAYLIST FOR “DUETS WEEK” (4.21.18)

22 Apr

There’s strength in numbers, right? So this must have been one of my strongest shows ever because ever song sung was sung by two singers. Plus the instrumentals were duets, too. I even invited a co-host to join me behind the mic – Alexa, the artificial intelligence assistant. That didn’t go exactly as I thought it would.

PLAYLIST FOR “CROSSOVERS: JAZZ VS COUNTRY” (5.3.14)

3 May

Good singers can sing practically anything, brave singers have tried at times to cross over from Jazz to Country and the other way, but the smart singers never lose themselves nor their way when traveling in unfamiliar territory. I think this is a collection of smart singers.  The Buddy Rich Big Band got tossed in there mostly to raise the decibel level.
