who knows what we’ll play?

June 20, 2010

We’ll try this again. After two weeks of being on vacation while the Radiator was hosting JazzLab during the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival, World of Music attempted a valiant return to the air last week only to be thwarted by a tangle of technical issues at the radio station.

So, we’re back this week with Gypsyland from the San Francisco Hot Club, Razia’s new release Zebu Nation, and since it’s the day of the summer solstice we’ll hear warm-weather sounds from Cuba, the Caribbean, and Africa. I’ll take a look around and see what else we can come up with. Hope you’ll be there. We take requests: (802) 861-9666.

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

le jazz hot

January 24, 2010

Gypsy jazz, gypsy swing, le jazz hot – whatever you want to call it, you know the sound even if the description is elusive.

This week’s World of Music celebrates the 100th birthday (1/23/1910) of the legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt. We’ll pay homage to the master with his own recordings, with like-minded successors Biréli Lagrène and Romane, and with an international selection of gypsy jazz guitarists.

We’ll check out some of the diverse “Hot Club” groups that carry on the gypsy swing legacy in cities like Detroit, Philly, San Francisco, and Austin, TX. On the homefront, we’ll hear how gypsy jazz is alive and well in the nimble hands of folks like Will Patton, and Swing Noire (with their brand new recording!).

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

BDJ Festival, day 5: queen city hot club

June 10, 2009
Burlington's new Queen City Hot Club

Burlington's new Queen City Hot Club: (from left to right) Jim Stout, Jim McCuen & Jared Volpe

The buzz got around just before the start of this year’s Jazz Festival, there’s a new group in town: the Queen City Hot Club.

Every good music community needs a Hot Club, I think, and for a place that supports jazz like Vermont does we were overdue.

There are a couple of very fine groups in town already who play from that genre, the Will Patton Ensemble and Mike Martin & Trio Gusto have been around for more than a decade, playing and recording repertoire that ranges from gypsy and country swing to bluegrass and Brazilian sambas. A classy, entertaining mix from some truly great musicians.

The Queen City Hot Club’s style is centered squarely in Paris, c. 1935. As they swung through classics like All of Me, Moonlight in Vermont (of course!) and Lady Be Good yesterday on Burlington’s Church Street Marketplace, I thought of some of my other favorite Hot Club/gypsy swing recordings.  A few of them are below, in no special order. (Except you have to at least start at the source with Django and Stephane. After that – explore, have fun, find the group that suits your style – and don’t forget to dance!)
