CrossTracks - July 14, 1998

Host: Richard H. Fox

No guest today, a show to stretch out and spin music. Instead of preprogramming, it was an improvisational morning, a mix of new music and old favorites, from contemporary singer/songwriters to alt-Country to jazz to blues with a twist of Gaelic. It's what we do on CrossTracks. Setting the tone was a journey into WCUW's jazz vinyl stacks with a eye out for sweet old Pablo recordings. One note, "This One's For Blanton," a Duke Ellington/Ray Brown tribute to Jimmy Blanton, is out on CD. Blanton was Ellington's landmark bassist. Though he died at age 21 , he left a legacy - the vision to elevate and liberate the string bass from accompaniment to solo voice. It's Jazz sprinkled with Classical, but a must if you love the string bass. Next Tuesday, Annie Rapid will be visiting us from Los Angeles. On July 28, Nashville's Nina Adel will grace our studio. August will begin with Boston's own "Queen Of Caffeine" Kerri Powers on August 4th. The following Tuesday, August 11th, Waterbug recording artist and guitar wizard Sam Pacetti will share his music with us. So here's today's CrossTracks mix, an eclectic start to our day here in MetroWorcester.
