AG Webcast Episode 4

Guest Rosemary White and Accessible Jazz

>>>>> AG Webcast Episode 4 <<<<<

I’m bringing back the guest host this week, by inviting Rosemary White onto the webcast. Rose has offered up 5 songs she enjoys, told me why she likes them, and answered a few other questions. I’m excited about having guests on the show to bring in some new music (and allow me to do a little less preparation!). Thanks a lot to Rose for being the test case in this little experiment. After that we hear a little jazz that I’ve been digging on lately. Here’s the setlist:

Rose’s Ass-kicking Songs

1. Regina Spektor – On the Radio
2. Dropkick Murphys – I’m Shipping Up to Boston
3. Jack Johnson – We’re Going to Be Friends

Rose and the Dropkick Murphys....never woulda guessed. Just wanted to say nice job yet again on the webcast. I was expecting to not like the Harry Connick, Jr. stuff but I surprisingly liked it, especially the second one, Ash Wednesday.

And I'm not sure, but I think I actually like the sad sounding Norah stuff a little more. The waltziness of the second one was nice. I hadn't heard this album yet. SHe's got a good Hank Williams cover on her first album, the name escapes me at the moment, though.

Keep up the good work, sir.

Nice set buddy. I haven't listened to much jazz recently so it was nice to take a gander.

One complaint: where is Rose? If she's gonna guest, I want to hear your voice instead of your incessant ramblings!

Bryan said...

Doh! I meant her voice.

I tried, but she refused. I wanted to post her picture too, but she wasn't too keen on that one either.

Look for more jazz to come. Lots of good stuff out there.
