"On Beyond Tepid" April 17, 2015

(Week 425)

This RADIOLA! is feeling the heat, and not in a bad way.

RADIOLA! streams continuously from my Live365 station. Luke warmer-cast here. Each RADIOLA! program is sent to subscribers on my mailing list (email here).

The April 2015 issue of JAZFAX (the newsletter of The Jazz Appreciation Society of Syracuse) features an excellent cover article by Russ Tarby about the host of this program. Check out the text of the article on the JASS Facebook page. If support live traditional jazz in Central New York (or anywhere else) please like the JASS page and consider supporting JASS with a membership.

Last Sunday we were delighted to see and hear Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi perform their incredible four-hand piano jazz in Fredonia, NY. This video conveys some of the pure joy of their "Runnin' Wild" routine. I couldn't stop smiling, and I still can't.

UPDATE: On further listening to Edison 52109 R, the so-called "hot fountain pen" referred to on my program sounds more like an ocarina. Also, "Adrian Rollini" turns out to be Spencer Clark (according to the American Dance Band discography). I really should look these things up before I pontificate.
