I’ll be featuring legendary bassist Victor Wooten on tonight’s edition of The After Hours. We’ll be listening mostly to Sword and Stone, the first disc to Wooten’s two-disc album he released last year. We’ll also hear some tracks from the rest of Wooten’s solo work, along with some live performances from his work with his brother Future Man, legendary banjo player Bela Fleck and Howard Levy (playing together as Bela Fleck and the Flecktones). On top of that we’ve got some of my other favorite bluegrass and acid jazz jam bands: The String Cheese Incident, James Taylor Quartet, Penguin Café Orchestra and Railroad Earth. In the last half hour of the show we’ll be taking a trip through some of my favorite psychedelic soul, featuring The Politicians, Monophonics, and The RH Factor. Stream it live August 3rd, 10pm-12am right here on KRUU.
i hope you can indulge me this week, while i get a little personal...
my father don, passed away at age 90 last sunday, and left me this fascinating collection of bluegrass, zydeco, folk, rock, country, and plain old cowboy music--dancing around in my head. so i'm going to share it. it's great music, and is based on the folk traditions that he grew up with. some of it's old, but i guaranty, lots of fascinating music will be on the turntable!
brace yourself for: gene autry, roy rodgers, buckwheat zydeco, doc watson, lester flatt & earle scruggs, the lovin spoonful, and the animals. yeh, it'll be a wild, fun ride. just like that other wild, fun ride...you know: life!
Junior Sisk and Rambler's Choice has been one of my favorite bluegrass bands of recent times. They have a new album out "The Heart Of A Song". Tune in October, 18 on the next KRUU Country Music Jamboree to hear a very special interview with Junior Sisk all about their new album and current happenings in the band.
Plus tune in to hear great traditional country, western, and bluegrass music.
