Music from Sonny Knight, Sharon Jones, Mavis Staples, and Son Little. Names you wouldn’t normally see on Jam Session. But Artists that can hang with the best of them (if not already be leading the march).
Inspired by the West Coast, today’s episode is kicked off by Slightly Stoopid. More BC-hydro inspired music from Papa Grows Funk and The Disco Biscuits, and we end with a long Alt-Rock stream-of-consciousness guitar piece by Erika Wennerstrom.
For the first time ever on Jam Session, I play Cleveland’s own jam band Heartless Bastards. Two tracks by the Ghost Town Blues Band, some great music by Bully Pulpit and WhiteWater Ramble, plus a great drinking-politics song by Scott Cooper.
First time plays by New Monsoon and Twiddle for me. Classic CRB and moe. and some Texas and Laurel Canyon sounds with Stu Larsen, Saint James Band, and Field Division.
Achilles Wheel and Cascade Crescendo help dry the sweat. Longriver and Dangermuffin slow our breathing. The Freeway Revival makes us think, and Karl Denson drives us home.
I play Ryan Montbleau for the first time on my episodes of Jam Session, and today I pontificate on the meaning of hearing Live music, with all the crowd noises and mic checks and improvisations, in face of all the ‘artist-alone-Live’ shows we’ve been taking in. Live tracks from ALO, Railroad Earth, CRB, plus some other studio gems.
Two tracks by ALO; a nice long tracks by Perpetual Groove and some feel good, trippy guitar solos by Big Something, Dangermuffin, and Railroad Earth.
Music by The New Deal, Lotus, Joss Jaffe, American Babies, MMW, and MMB. It’s a 21st Century, Star-WarsTM inspired episode of Jam Session.
Classic SCI. Live CRB. Funk from Asheville, North Carolina and Colorado, and the eclectic sounds of Garaj Mahal.
Music celebrating weed and getting high. Great tracks by Cousin Fungus, 10 Ft. Ganja, Slightly Stoopid and Das Funk Haus. Some country by Grayson Capps and some Blues by the Ghost Town Blues Band.
This week we try to stay focused on some great singer-songwriters who live in the tradition of Americana, Country and Bluegrass, and put an emphasis on the power of words and whose voices we can’t forget. In remembrance of John Prine, 10.10.1946 — 04.07.2020.
I play Road Man for the first time, get a Reggae theme to kick things off with Bumpin’ Uglies, Buddahfly and SS. Funk it up with Tomatoband. And ponder on lyrics with Dangermuffin and Fruits Bats. CRB brings it on home.
Brand new music from CATS plus some Pigeon Town, live Skerik, SPAGA, JM and MMB.
Early tracks from Broken Social Scene, The Motet and Gov’t Mule plus some classic jams from String Cheese and Papadosio. It’s an episode that hopefully helps you forget about everything for an hour.
New music from Mapache, great organ sounds from MMB plus mandolin from Leftover Salmon and African drumbeats from Achilles Wheel.
This ep is composed of Jams that are seven minutes or longer. Only leaves me room to play six tracks. But why end a jam when it’s jus so damn good.
New music by CATS and WhiteWater Ramble leads us to Robert Walter’s 20th Congress, The Motet, Leif Erikson, Misty Mountain Sting Band, Chris Thile, Leftover Salmon and moe. It’s amazing how’s its all connected, idn’t it?
New live cuts from Howlin’ Rain and Kingsley Durant. The Breakfast is on for the first time since I took over. And a phenomenal opening track by CBH.
New music from Kingsley Durant and SixFoxWhiskey plus a lot of attention to organ jammin’.
New music from Umphrey’s McGee and we dive into the consciousness of Bonny Done, Strand of Oaks, American Babies and The Good Graces.
New Wood Brothers and new Moon Hooch as they both start tours to support new albums released Jan 10. And I replay for you some new, old music I discovered this week by Railroad Earth and Keller Williams (plus a lot more).
It’s a calming episode with Joe Russo, La Strada, Robert Earl Thomas, Burnell Pines and Purple Mountains.
New music from Umphrey’s McGee with some fresh sounds for 2020 Jams from American Babies, Daemon Chili, Karl Denson and Joss Jaffe.
