in the garden

July 11, 2010

It’s a ripe garden of great tunes on this week’s World of Music, including DJ Frane’s organic-electric fantasy, the Electric Garden of Delights.

We’ll hear the newest releases from Brazil’s Luisa Maita, Vermont’s own Guagua, and Benin’s Angelique Kidjo.

Mongo Santamaria and the Easy Star All-Stars offer tributes to the Beatles and Pink Floyd, and we’ll preview Crescent, the exceptional new Coltrane tribute album from vibes artist Mike Mainieri.

World of Music is a fertile compost of blues, poetry, jazz, and international music every Monday from 3-5pm ET on the Radiator. Online, or at 105.9FM if you’re listening in Burlington, VT.

more than a bus

March 13, 2010

Go ahead, try it: type Guagua into Google. You’ll soon find that Guagua is a kind of minibus, popular especially in South American countries for public transportation.

Guagua is also Vermont’ premiere tropicália band. Last night, with an azure wash of groovy percussion and electric guitar and keyboard instrumentals, Guagua played to a dancing crowd among the stacks at the Huntington Library. The generous set included several selections from their brand new third album – Tres (get it?).

Stay tuned here for news about when they might be doing a live performance on World of Music – this spring, I hope.

poetry + jazz = PoJAZZ

October 18, 2009

AIF0239 Insert LEXp001.artThe project is described as “an experiment in words and music”, and yet there’s very little left to chance in the new PoJAZZ collaboration. Over the last year, eight of the region’s top poets came together with more than a dozen of the area’s best jazz performers in various local venues for several evenings of artistic exchange.

One of those venues was The Black Door in Montpelier, and the new PoJAZZ recording Last Days – Live from the Black Door has just been released. It’s excellent.

We’ll give PoJAZZ a listen on this week’s World of Music along with other local sounds from the trio “Twist of the Wrist”; Burlington’s psychotropical band Guagua; and the new release from Adamant-based didgeridoo virtuoso Pitz Quattrone and his Earthman Band.

Discovering the world right here at home, along with the latest from Africa, Peru, Belize, Québec, and the usual international musical hot spots.

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