Big Road Blues has posted show notes from their latest broadcast, and they contain a wonderful essay about the influential guitarist and singer Tampa Red:
"During his heyday in the 1920’s and 30’s, Tampa Red was billed as “The Guitar Wizard,” and his stunning slide work on steel National or electric guitar shows why he earned the title."
Destination Out goes retro with some excellent mp3's and lists of the Best Jazz of the 1980's:
"We at Dest: OUT are incredibly pleased to present all the Voice lists this week, in two posts, along with music that draws from some of the most mentioned albums. We have found the whole thing to be surprisingly deep, the source of much great music. We hope the same is true for you."
