  2. Stories from the Road with Brandi Carlile & Meschiya Lake (Hour 2)

    We hit the open road to hear tales of adventure and woe from honky-tonkers and hobos, train-hoppers and busking bohemians. En route we talk with Washington folk singer Brandi Carlile, who dropped out of high school to cut it as a touring musician, and New Orleans’ Meschiya Lake, about her journey from circus performer to jazz chanteuse. Driving on in search of mythic America, we hear the voices of its discontents: Woody Guthrie, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Wilco and Pops Staples. Plus, we “Ramble On” with Lucinda Williams before coming down with a case of “Travelin’ Blues” from Jimmie Rodgers. By planes, trains and automobiles, we journey across our country’s musical landscape with stories from the road.

  5. Jerry González, Latin Jazz Heavyweight, RIP | KCRW Music Blog

    I first saw Jerry González and his Fort Apache Band in action at the Jazz Bakery in 1995, then at a small, short-lived club called The Ashgrove on the Santa Monica Pier in 1996. I had heard about them earlier—González, the leader, was a top-tier trumpet player and conguero who coaxed both rhythms and melodies from his array of five conga drums.

  6. Radio Gladys Palmera - Cachao con arco y sin arco

    En un artículo de 1993 para el diario El País, Guillermo Cabrera Infante hizo una definición de Cachao a la altura de su arte: "Cachao es el músico que hizo con el danzón lo que la Revolución Francesa le hizo al minué. ¡Que rueden las pelucas!".

    El irreverente escritor cubano sentía rendida admiración por el bajista y aseguraba, refiriéndose a un disco reciente de Paquito D’Rivera, que "su vida en música está en el número que se llama Descarga 93 y comienza con Cachao tocando el contrabajo con arco. Es un solo y una introducción en que el bajo suena como un chelo. Minutos más tarde la percusión cubana se le une en un paroxismo de ritmos desde el doble bajo, también un instrumento de percusión".

    No es de extrañar. Alguna vez contó: "También toqué la trompeta, el tres y el piano. Todos son instrumentos difíciles. Cuando uno los va a estudiar de verdad, todos son difíciles. Yo toco el bajo con arco o pizzicato, pero prefiero el arco, ya que hay más posibilidades de entregar el mejor sonido del instrumento".

    Esta playlist aborda esa singularidad. Cachao fue un prodigio de digitación sobre cuatro cuerdas, pero su extensísima carrera está plagada de idas y vueltas entre esa forma normal de tocar el bajo y el uso del arco como complemento. "Son travesuras que dan variedad", declaró en una entrevista, a lo que nosotros podríamos agregar que son las huellas de su paso genial por la música y arte.

  7. Blue Note Records: Then and Now with Don Was (Hour 2)

    We take a deep dive into the vaults of Blue Note Records, the independent label that helped put artists like Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey and Jimmy Smith on the map. Flagbearer of trad jazz, bebop and the cool school, Blue Note is still at it after 79 years and has expanded its wheelhouse to include vocalists like Norah Jones, Ryan Adams and Van Morrison. We talk with producer extraordinaire and Blue Note president Don Was about the label’s past and new directions. And we confab with record maven Michael Cuscuna about digging through Blue Note’s back catalog and giving life to unreleased and out-of-print masterpieces. Plus, we hear from Aaron Neville, Jason Moran and Lonnie Smith about their part in the legendary label’s history. It’s a parade of jazz, old and new, borrowed and blue… and then some!
