And we're back with a fresh new name, but the same funky vinyl grooves you've come to expect on Wednesday nights.  The long hiatus means we're bursting at the seams with new jams to bring your way.  Let's check out Secret Stash Records latest excavation, Peter King's African Dialects and a new one from Lance Ferguson, the leader of The Bamboos from Australia, as he makes a foray into spiritual jazz with his new band, Menagerie.  Plus, the debut of an unreleased album from Kenny Cox on the legendary Strata label and some music from Light in the Attic's incredible Marcos Valle reissue series

Keyboard heavy grooves goin' down at the Junction Wednesday night.  The Greg Foat Group returns with another great analogue recording and it's just as great as last year's debut!  Plus, we learned about Dave Brubeck's passing just before leaving for last week's show, so let's pay proper tribute to a true legend in jazz.  And the usual vinyl-only madness will ensue, including scores from the Philadelphia Record Riot...see you then!

Stop by the Junction Wednesday night for 100% vinyl grooves.  Last week featured some great debuts, but still some more new ones to bring your way.  The legendary Art Pepper's wife Laurie just teamed up with Omnivore Records to release a series of live quartet sides from the early '80s, Jazzman digs deeper (do they every stop???) to bring us hard luck soul from the Ohio Penitentiary's 511 Jazz Ensemble and Mayer Hawthorne's Record Store Day 10 inch is a great live session from KCRW's Morning Goes Eclectic.  And sadly, Dave Brubeck died today, so we'll pay tribute.   Come on in!

Stop by the Junction Wednesday night for some great new vinyl grooves.  Out of nowhere, the Greg Foat Group returns with an EP close on the heels of last year's now classic release and in anticipation of a full length coming out in the next two weeks.  But that's not all!  The Menahan Street Band just released their 2nd album, Finnish reedman Timo Lassy's got a new one, and we'll spin the soundtrack to Searching for Sugarman, a documentary about the enigmatic folk/funk of the elusive Rodriguez.  Plus, a batch of Hendrix covers celebrating the man's 70th birthday!
