Funkiness looms Wednesday night on Soul Junction, as we debut an album from Mickey Murray that was so scarcely distributed in the early 70s that we may as well call it brand new! Plus, we'll of course pay respect to Johnny Otis, Jimmy Castor, and Etta James, three recently departed soul legends, and get into some more fuzzy blues from Albert Collins and Freddie King.

All sorts of international funky madness ahead on Soul Junction, including a late night jam session from Sweden's Svenska Lod AB, Swiss fusion from Emphasis and Thai funk from The Impossibles. But xenophobes fret not! We'll also have rare grooves from D.C.'s Hilton Felton, righteousness from The 24 Carat Black reppin' the 'Nati and we'll journey through an electric tube with Mike Mainieri...(NYC for those keeping track!)

The holiday season came to a close with a rocking Groove Food! reunion, so let's cool out with what my man Benge of Sex Fly calls "jazz burners."  Sadly, Sam Rivers just passed, so we'll pay respects and we'll send DJ Lippy & DJ Bubbles off with some Texas funk.  Plus, loads of heavy Fender Rhodes with Byard Lancaster's Sounds of Liberation, Lloyd McNeill's Washington Suite and Argentinian madness from Fernando Gelbard & Jorge Hector Lopez.

A great night of music ahead on Soul Junction, as local drummer and composer Dan Capecchi of Shot X Shot joins us live in the studio.  A drum heavy night looms, featuring music by Tony Williams, Ornette Coleman, Manfred Schoof, and The Exploding Star Orchestra.  Plus, a solo by Dom Um Romao that has to be heard to be believed!  Sadly, we will also pay tribute to the legendary Paul Motian, who passed away last week.
