After seeing an amazing Béla Fleck and the Flecktones concert in Saskatoon last night, I wish I was doing a special on them. Alas, I have none of their albums at all, let alone any on record. That’s a shame, really. I’ll do my best to fix that for the future.
I’m still in amazing-live-performance mode, but I’ll try to get into the right headspace for tonight.
Indeed, it is Long-Play Wednesday, so I packed up a huge pile of vinyl records including around 15 selections from the recently past Community Radio Garage Sale, a couple of fall-backs (my favourites) and a bunch of new stuff.
There’s never enough time to play everything I want, but tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 for tonight’s possibilities including: Freddie Hubbard, Stevie Wonder, Spyro Gyra, Oscar Peterson, Nat King Cole, Pat Metheny, Ornette Coleman and a disturbing amount more.
