Can anyone help me out on this? I received this query from
a listener a couple of days ago.
"Hoping that you can help me identify an artist/title from a 50s-era
"Down on Skid Row" by Johnny Rex. The easiest way to find it is to google
the title with
"minnesota video vault" in the search, then watch the beginning of the
movie. After the
initial credits, you hear something that sounds like early Miles or very
early Sun Ra, but
by about a minute in there's a very hard driving Mingus-esque bass followed
by a haunting
yet quirky two horn melody. Do you know who this is?"
This will get you to the site, click on "entire show".
PS the Johnny Rex mentioned above is the alias of John Bacich.
