The Sunday Show 22 April 2012
Apologies for not providing the write-up to accompany last weeks show. The combination of a late night following Anne's birthday celebrations on the Saturday night and a 'Free Listing Day' on eBay meant the house was in an eBay listing frenzy on Sunday morning.
Anyone who follows us regularly will know that we like to feature new artists from time to time. This week we head off to Paris, France to find Gerald "GG" Bonnegrace, a composer and multi-intrumentalist whose album Seventy Seven has been released under the name G's Way. GG does a great job of recreating the 70's funk sound. The album features plenty of great tunes and we'll be featuring some of them over the coming weeks. If you like what you hear you can pick up a copy of the album from here. For me, I particularly like the bass playing, a touch of Mark King of Level 42 in places. There must be something about Paris and bass players; Richard Bona, another great player spent some time there before settling in the USA.
We've been busy recording some new vinyl for you this week and we've gone for the British band Hi-Tension. For me their one and only album was outstanding, simply love it. I purchased the album second-hand and it's not in the best condition. I've worked to remove the hiss, crackles and pops as best I can but they're still audible in the quieter places. This week we're bringing you one of the two tracks that were released as singles - British Hustle.
Following on from the three hour Soul and Jazz-Funk set we'll be bringing you a Smooth Jazz and an R&B section.
In the Smooth Jazz and contemporary jazz section we've got lots of new music, purchased on the recent trip to the US. We've got new music from Jeff Lorber Fusion, Kirk Whalum, Randy Scott, Eric Marienthal, Najee and Neamen Lyles. We've also got the fifth track from Chris Standring's new album. We've also got more from Jackiem Joyner.
In the R&B section we've got music from Eric Benet, Maxwell, Chico DeBarge and Lawrence Welton.
The Smooth Jazz show will last for about two hours this week and will be opened by Randy Scott and closed by Richard Elliott. The R&B set will last for about one hour and will be opened by Frank McComb and closed by Brian McKnight.
The full list of tracks appearing in this weeks show is available here. That's all for now, we look forward to seeing you this Sunday.
We'll be kicking off around 10am for the usual three hour show followed by Smooth Jazz sometime after 1pm and the R&B section around 3pm. Hope you can join us. Access is via the green widget above.

Now onto that feedback that we're after. Our six hour show is currently split across three genres albeit some cross-over of genres does occur. We would like to know whether you tune in to listen to a particular musical genre. We would also like to know whether you think we should change the format of the show by combining one or more genres. You can find the survey form from the top menu under 'News' - 'Take Our Poll' or use our 'Contact Us' page to feedback any other comments you may have.
