So What

November 12, 2011 at 10:00 PM CST

This is Hairy Larry inviting you to enjoy Something Blue every Saturday night at ten. This week we’ll hear Jazz Alliance live at the Jonesboro Public Library.

Don’t miss Something Blue, Saturday night at ten, right here on KASU.

Something Blue – So What

Welcome to Something Blue. Tonight we’re featuring recordings of Jazz Alliance made at the Public Library’s Fall Concert Series on September 27, 2011. Besides some great music members of the band give us a glimpse into the era of Jazz known as Bebop and Post Bop and then they end with a Swing era standard. So I’m going to turn it over to Mike Overall, on the lawn, at the Jonesboro Public Library.

And that’s Jazz Alliance at the Jonesboro Public Library, Ron Horton, trumpet; Craig Collison, vibes; David Eckert, bass; and Mike Overall, drums. We heard “There Will Never Be Another You” and “Recordame”. Great music recorded for Something Blue right here in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

I’m Hairy Larry and you’re listening to Something Blue on KASU, 91.9 FM and streaming on the internet at http://kasu.org.

Please visit the Something Blue website at http://sbblues.com where you can find out more about the show, read the scripts, and listen to podcasts anytime. Lots of great music there, mostly live recordings, many of them recorded in Northeast Arkansas featuring real music by real people that you know.

Just like tonight featuring Jazz Alliance. Ron Horton and Craig Collison teach at ASU and David Eckert and Mike Overall work at the Public Library. Our intro and outtro music is “Blues In A Hurry” from the Jazz Alliance CD, Partly Cloudy.

The rest of the recordings we’re playing tonight were part of the Public Library’s Fall Concert Series. I’m going to let Ron introduce these next two songs, Au Privave and Black Orpheus.

Oh yeah, what a great concert. There’s no music like live music and I have to thank everyone at the Jonesboro Public Library who worked so hard to provide us with this quality entertainment. Tonight we’re listening to Jazz Alliance recorded on September 27, 2011. We heard “Someday Your Prince Will Come” and “It Could Happen To You”.

Whether you call it Modal, Post Bop, or Cool Jazz, Miles Davis revolutionized the Jazz World with his Kind Of Blue album. We’re going to hear Jazz Alliance play Miles’ song “So What”. Then they will end their show with a swing number, “Take The A Train” by Duke Ellington. Now here’s a real Jazz expert, Mike Overall, introducing the songs.

I used Ron Horton’s song “Blues In A Hurry” from the Jazz Alliance Partly cloudy CD for intro and outtro music on this show. I’m including the entire track in the podcast.
