"Fifteen Feet and In" Playlist, 12/19/05
I started out with 'Go Ahead, John' off of Miles Davis's Big Fun album. Nice tune to start with, and I had a taste for the Blues yesterday. With that said, I found a Big Walter Horton album off of Alligator Records that was phenomeonal. If you can find Albert King's Live 1973 album, that's a doozy as well.
On my wish list, I think 'Steppin' Into Tomorrow' has to be on the list. I played Donald Byrd's 'Think Twice', which was redone by Erykah Badu...It's not even close, people... 'Think Twice' seguewayed smoothly into Main Source 'Lookin' Out The Front Door', which also used Byrd's 'Think Twice' as a sample.
I'm also up on Tom Scott's LA Express. I picked up the lead on Scott during my teen years while listening to the Blues Brothers...People don't ever underestimate that band...The Blues Brothers had a pile-driving rhythm section with Tom Scott on the Trombone. You can catch him now in David Letterman's band led by former Blues Brothers and Saturday Night Live band leader, Paul Schaffer.
With all that said, it was nice to be back on the air...Enjoy the list, and keep posted for more shows. I have some ideas for ya' coming your way...
