Lucky Old Souls

Every Tuesday at 2 p.m., Feldie brings you two hours of the hottest, swingin-est jazz and R&B tracks from back in the day... and I mean back in the day, as in 50, 60, 70+ years ago. That's right... The best jazz, pop standards, blues of all kinds, early rock & roll, songs that were hits, and songs that should have been hits. We're not nostalgic--we just know that music transcends time... and a hit is a hit.

The Jazz Continuum (Saturdays, 6-8pm): Vocal Tangent
Hosted by David Brown
WGGT-LP Philadelphia

In the decades that I’ve been infatuated with Jazz, I never gave time to vocalists. Then I heard Cécile McLorin Salvant sing. I finally got it. The phrasing, melodic improvisation, and rhythmic subtlety of jazz vocalists bring a new dimension to the music. I’ve been on a vocal tangent, exploring this unfamiliar dimension with a new found excitement. For today’s show, we’ll sample vocalist in the jazz tradition as well as some that push those boundaries.
