The first session comes from an Alabama raised daughter of Muscle Shoals writer/performer Walt Aldridge. Hannah Aldridge plays songs from her debut House of Mercy Record of the Week ‘ Razor Wire ‘ .
The Pretty Things are British 60’s legends and Dick Taylor & Phil May visit the Snake Pit to tell us tales from the past … play a few tunes and celebrate the anniversary of their 1st album and remind us that they are playing a very special show at London’s 100 club this Friday 4th July.
Record of this Week comes from Newcastle and is Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra’s second album of jazzy western swing that takes contemporary subjects freshly transported into this timeless music. ‘ Talk About The Weather ‘ is sure fire toe tapping music played with the passion it deserves … a real winner of a collection of great self penned songs.

Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Fri June 27 & Tues July 1

Think of Horace Silver and the heart warms, the smile begins, even now. If he was one of the architects of post-bop jazz, there was soul in the architecture, church in the soul, and funk in the church, and what he brought to the music is still helping keep it alive. He died the other day at the age of 85, and this week’s Updoc—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday—plays some of his classic sides in tribute and fond memory. Speaking personally, in 1959 I was a kid who’d happened into jazz via Henry Mancini’s music for Peter Gunn and I didn’t know which end was up or where the center was. Then a cousin of mine I hardly knew said Listen to this, and it was Sister Sadie off the new Horace Silver record Blowin’ the Blues Away. In minutes I had the compass, a map I could begin to unfold, and a world I could get to know. For an additional boost the cousin played me Leeway. Lee Morgan and Art Blakey! I was ready to go. About midway, Updoc takes a break with some Fado because of Silver’s roots in the African-Portuguese Cape Verde Islands, then leaps to India, I’ll tell you why on the show, for the great Indian Singer Pandit Nasraj. Otherwise it’s classic Horace Silver Quintets, including the 1954 night at Birdland with Art Blakey and Clifford Brown; the music is as full of life as it ever was, and Sister Sadie is the first to testify, because.HoraceLarge

Our second session was an explosive blues roots attack from the fiery Glasgow bluesman Dave Arcari. ‘ Whiskey In The Blood ‘ is his first released on vinyl as well as CD & download. Recorded in Finland with local musicians The Helsinki Hell Raisers.
Record of the week came a long way to get here … Melbourne Australia is the home of Hat Fitz & Carla Robinson and their very hot new record ‘ Do Tell ‘ was produced by legendary wonder guitarist Jeff Lang.
