7:02am

Dirty Dozen Brass Band “We Gon' Roll”
from Twenty Dozen (Savoy Jazz 2012) —Robert Christgau says these guys are one of the best "you-had-to-be-there" acts, and he's right that their records don't kick as hard as their live shows. But, dammit, this is some funky stuff right here.

7:06am

The Dynamites featuring Charles Walker “Burn It Down” (Ter A Terre 2009) —Hope you feel like doing the boogaloo first thing this morning.

7:09am

Stevie Wonder “You Haven't Done Nothin'”
from Fulfillingness' First Finale (Motown 1974) —Hello, funky clavinet.

7:13am

Kool & The Gang “Hollywood Swinging”
from Wild & Peaceful (Mercury www.virginemirecords.com 1973) —Asked to do a cover of "Soul Makossa," the Gang came up with this original instead. Thank you, Allmusic.com - I did not know that.

7:20am

Janiva Magness “I'm Alive”
from Stronger For It (Alligator Performing 2012) N  —There is a lot to love about this Shelby Lynne cover, but I'm gonna single out exceptionally smart drumming by former St. Louisian Matt Tecu as the thing that makes this perfect.

7:24am

Art Neville “That Rock & Roll Beat”
from A History of the Neville Brothers - A Family Affair (Charly 1999) —I do enjoy the Art Neville solo career - this is, of course, an Allen Toussaint number.

7:26am

The Yardbirds “Puzzles”
from LIttle Games (Parlophone 2003) —From the Jimmy Page era.

7:31am

Van Morrison “Beside You”
from Bang Masters (Sony 1991) —I love the Hammond organ on this cut, as Van finds a vocal spot halfway between Mose Allison jazz and r'n'b.

7:37am

Curtis Stigers “Chances Are”
from Let's Go Out Tonight (Concord 2012) N  —Fantabulous interpretation of Hayes Carll's song.

7:41am

Martha Wainwright “Jesus and Mary”
from I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too (Drowned In Sound 2008) —A beautiful and complicated not-exactly-love song.

7:47am

Eleni Mandell “Crooked Man”
from I Can See the Future (Yep Roc 2012) —He was bent on being bent. That's one great line. I also like "Everything he said was wrong or else he quoted Bob Dylan."

7:50am

Leonard Cohen “Lullaby”
from Old Ideas (Columbia www.columbiarecords.com 2012) N  —Well, this gentle number might help you sleep, but I'm not sure how pleasant your dreams will be.

7:55am

Milton Nascimento “San Vicente”
from Brazil Classics Vol. 1: Beleza Tropical (Luaka Bop 1989) —Beautiful beyond description. Really.

8:02am

Patti Smith “Constantine's Dream”
from Banga (Columbia www.columbiarecords.com 2012) N  —A lot to unpack here - St. Francis of Assisi, Piero Della Francesca, Constantine, Columbus, art, animals, God, man, sleep, unrest, beauty, destruction.

8:14am

Miles Davis “Bemsha Swing”
from Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Giants (Prestige 1954) —Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Milt Jackson, Percy Heath, Kenny Clarke, on a Monk classic.

8:24am

John Scofield “Already Septemeber”
from A Moment's Peace (Decca 2011) —Because I just don't have the ability to think ahead, and remember to play this song in two weeks, when the title will hold true.

8:32am

Kronos Quartet “Don't Think Twice, It's All Right”
from Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan (Amnesty International 2012) N  —I continue to be surprised and delighted by unexpected versions on this 4-disc set that I dip into now and again.

8:36am

Duncan Dhu “Cuento De La Cancion En La Botella”
from Autobiographia (East West 1990) —The best Spanish pop/rock band I've ever heard. Alright, they're the only Spanish pop/rock band I've ever heard, but they were really good.

8:40am

Kelly Hogan “Sleeper Awake”
from I Like to Keep Myself in Pain (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2012) N  —That John Wesley Harding knows his pop traditions - this sounds like something Dusty Springfield could have scored with back in the day.

8:44am

Mott the Hoople “The Golden Age of Rock N' Roll”
from The Hoople (Columbia www.columbiarecords.com 1974) —I wasn't exactly cool back in the 70s, but I did fall in love with this song while most of the country was ignoring it.

8:48am

Ian Hunter “When I'm President” (Slimstyle 2012) N  —Very cool to walk into the station and find a new album sitting on the shelf from the ex-Mott the Hoople singer.

8:52am

from Beginnings / Play It Loud (Salvo 2006) —In the early days, they spelled better, and rocked pretty hard anyway.

8:55am

Karate Bikini “Medic”
from Sauce of the Apple Horse (self 2012) N L —These guys will be at the Heavy Anchor Saturday night with the Vondrukes - sounds like a good show to me.

9:01am

The Pirates “Shakin' All Over”
from Don't Munchen It: Live In Europe 1978 (RPM 2000) —Scorching live version of the song they'd played backing up Johnny Kidd (though guitar genius Mick Green didn't play the original).

9:05am

The Trip Daddys “All American Boy”
from THE LIFE WE CHOSE (Daddy Time Reords 2011) L —Speaking of scorching.

9:10am

The Jam “All Around the World”
from Compact Snap (Polydor 1983) —I don't spend a lot of time looking for new, but I love this song anyway. Of course, "Can't dismiss what's gone before / But there's foundations for us to explore" is a great concept.

9:14am

Christy McWilson “Life's Little Enormities”
from Bed of Roses (Hightone 2002) —One of my very favorite songs of the 00's. No home should be without it.

9:19am

Chris Smither “What They Say”
from Hundred Dollar Valentine (Signature Sounds www.signaturesounds.com 2012) N  —They say the good die young but it ain't for certain / I've been good all day and I ain't hurtin'.

9:28am

The Bobbettes “Mr. Lee”
from Atlantic Rhythm & Blues 1947 to 1974 vol. 3 (1955-1958) (Atlantic 1985) —Screwy enough for me.

9:31am

Piano Red “Doctor Feelgood”
from The Lost Atlanta Tapes (Landslide 2010) —All you women don't come around unless you weigh 400 pounds.

9:36am

Blind Willie McTell “Delia”
from The Essential (Classic Blues 2001) —Bad things always seem to happen in songs about women named Delia.

9:38am

Otis Rush “If You Were Mine”
from Essential Collection: The Classic Cobra Recordings 1956-1958 (Varese Sarabande 2000) —Otis Rush can no longer perform, but he can sure be proud of what he accomplished in his life.

9:41am

Elmore James “Make a Little Love”
from Slide Guitar Master (Proper 2006) —That sound of Elmore James never gets old.

9:44am

Jerry Douglas “On a Monday”
from Traveler (EOne 2012) N  —Great version of the Leadbelly classic.

9:48am

Foster & Lloyd “Texas in 1880”
from Foster & Lloyd (RCA 1987) —Allowing for the gated drum sound, this is still an amazing record.

9:52am

The Mastersons “Time”
from Birds Fly South (New West 2012) N  —This album is slowly working its way up my depth chart for the year. I do love it considerable much.
