After several weeks of near-silence, the phones were ringing off the hook
today. The most popular track among our local listeners was the Afrobeat
track by Adeniji - we really do need much more current world music, record
labels and publicists! Other listener response came for British folk-rockers
Moontagu, smooth-jazzers Phaze II (to be frank, I'm not a huge smooth-jazz
fan myself - I can tolerate it - but as long as listeners continue to
respond, I try to play one or two tracks per show), bass player Christian
Fabian, a rockin' instrumental by three great blues singer-guitarists
(Foley, Coleman, Potvin), the extended improvisations of Dan Mazer, Mike
Auldrdige, Jimmy Gaudreau, et. al. on BanjerDan's bluegrass-jazz arrangement
of a Tom Jobim classic, and the more orthodox bossa-nova/jazz of Paul Donat.
(I can tell you from not only a DJ's perspective, but from the students in
my Musics of the World and Music of Latin America classes - Fredonians of
all ages LOVE Brazilian and Brazilian-flavored music of all sorts.) My
personal pick is Jani Lauzon's smooth harmonization of Native Canadian vocal
music, somewhat on the order of Joanne Shenandoah's recasting of Mohawk
songs. To the list:

Dennis Mitcheltree - Mosinee Mayhem - Union

Carol Rodland with Tatevik Mokatsian - From This Moment On - Viola Swirl

Marilyn Zavidow - Defenses Down - Safe and Sound EPreview (LOCAL NOTE:
Pianist Don Rebic and drummer Eric Wills are both former SUNY Fredonia music
faculty members.)
