Time zone: central
Carl Sonny Leyland “Jumpin' At The Jamboree”
from The Carl Sonny Leyland Trio Meets Nathan James And Ben Hernandez (Sacred Cat Recordings 2006) —Sacred Cat is Nathan James' label; Nathan produced this album featuring his old partner Hernandez and the English piano-man Leyland.
Major Lance “The Matador”
from Everybody Loves A Good Time The Best Of Major Lance (Sony Music Entertainment 1995) —Lance was OKeh's top selling artist while with the label from 62-68. He died of heart failure at only 55 years old back in 1994.
Candye Kane “I Wanted You To Walk (Right Through That Door)”
from Coming Out Swingin' Featuring Laura Chavez (VIZZTONE 2013) —Candye has been battling serious health problems the last several years, and the effects show on her voice somewhat. However, she nails this tune - the girl is rockin' it!
Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles “Lonely Town Of Love”
from Diamonds In the Dark (Sugar Hill Records ww.sugarhillrecords.com 2007) —the more I listen to Borges' music, the more I like it. She mixes up rock 'n' roll, country, blues and makes it all her own. Good stuff from this Boston artist.
Scottie Miller Band “Let Your Soul Shine”
from Rise Up (Artist 2012) —Scottie and band are at BB's Jazz Blues & Soups on Sat Dec 21st, part of a mini- mid-winter mid-west tour. I guess since he's from Minneapolis a little snow threat doesn't bother him any. Also, a member of Ruthie Foster's band.
