songs for ‘stick’ season

November 15, 2009

John McCutcheon WintersongsAutumn’s closing out, winter’s not quite here yet. We’re waiting for snow.

This week’s World of Music features Wisconsin native John McCutcheon with a song about anticipating the snow, from his Wintersongs. We’ll make musical stops in Norway, Scotland, and Senegal in the weekly world tour – and find out what happens when a contemporary DJ remixes traditional stories from India’s ancient epic, the Ramayana. The result is unforgettable. The Easy Star All-Stars give up “Money” from Dub Side of the Moon, and the Denver Dub Collective channels Prince from their brand new release Purple Dub.

World of Music is a seasonal blend of blues, jazz, poetry, and world music every Monday on the Radiator, 3-5pm ET. Online, or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.

under the covers

September 13, 2009

PurpleDub

This week’s World of Music revives the occasional theme “Under the Covers”, featuring world music and jazz covers of popular tunes.

And I can’t wait for this one, because an old college friend recently sent me a great one in the genre. His new band – The Denver Dub Collective – has just re-recorded Prince’s entire iconic album Purple Rain, dub-style. It kicks.

Other highlights: a Brazilian (sung in Portuguese) “Hit the Road Jack”; the Godfather of Soul channeled through a contemporary French jazz sax ensemble (I Feel Good); and a new one from the original dub masters, the Easy Star All-Stars. You thought they’d done it all with Dub Side of the Moon? Not quite, the new one’s an all-dub Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band.

World of Music is going ‘under the covers’ this week with a fun show of blues, jazz, and roots cover tunes. On the Radiator Mondays from 3-5pm ET: online or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.
