Last year was a busy one in regards to American music, and who could be expected to hear all the fine releases let loose late in the year?
There are big bands, and then there is the Educated Guess. Helmed by Singer, songwriter and arranger Charlie Brumley, the St. Louis group often sprawls to a dozen or more musicians on stage, but it's not the numbers that matter. It's the soaring, orchestral, soul-pop vision, captured on new recordings like the Motown-spirited "Baby, If You Want It."
Since buying his first album at the age of five, Jim Bruce has loved music. From blues and jazz to rock, it all finds a way onto his show "Higher Ground," from 2-4 p.m. Central every Tuesday on KDHX.
American music is where it’s at, and KDHX is the place to be to get the lowdown on some recent releases that may have slipped a bit below your radar.
Kenny DeShields doesn’t fit into any single genre of music, and that’s OK with him. He has made his own.
With influences like Curtis Mayfield, the Meters and Quincy Jones, the Provels are St. Louis' soul providers.
A great song always makes a connection -- with your heart, your body, your head, sometimes with your voice, when you can't stop singing or humming along. The DJs of KDHX know that feeling, and they love sharing it with the world. These are the songs that truly connected with them -- and we hope with you -- in 2014.
