"Contrast in Black and White" August 3, 2007

(Week 87)

I couldn't upload this playlist before the broadcast owing to electrical storms (which play havoc with our DSL connection). I featured selections recorded by both black and white artists, some using the same arrangements, showing the influence--and the genuine respect--going both ways. It was a good show--and it's up on Live365 for the next few weeks.

Mr. Senior,

Thanks for playing some James Reese Europe! I always get a kick out of this sound, verging on the jazz of a few years ahead, yet not quite there.

And let's take a moment to thank Archeophone, Memphis Archives, Frog, Jazz Oracle, Timeless-Chris Barber Collection, JSP, Proper, Classics, Take Two, Hep, The Old Masters and all those other sources of superb collections of music that otherwise would probably never see the light of day again...THANKS!
