THERE ARE TWO PLAYLISTS BELOW

THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

+ LAST WEEK’S PLAYLIST

 

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 4/22/18
JOE MORRIS PLAYS

This week on Blues Before Sunrise we'll listen to recordings by Joe Morris. Joe was a trumpeter who first hit the scene in 1942 as a 20 year old in the Lionel Hampton Orchestra. He served four years in the trumpet section with Hamp, recording under Hamp's name for Decca and accompanying such notable singers as Dinah Washington and Wynonie Harris on their earliest records, before breaking away to start his own combo. At first his band aspired to play Bebop and included such notable players as Johnny Griffin, Matthew Gee, Elmo Hope and Philly Joe Jones. Later, at the end of the 1940s he changed directions and became an R&B orchestra much in the template of the Johnny Otis Orchestra; with a variety of vocalists including Laurie Tate, Al Savage, and Billy Mitchell; and instrumental numbers by orchestra itself. Joe also introduced and accompanied a Gospel singer by the name of Fannie Scruggs, who quickly became famous - after a change of names - as Faye Adams! We'll spin sides from each phase of his career; as sideman, Bop combo leader, and R&B orchestra Ramrod! We've outdone ourselves this week! The Sound of Trumpeter Joe Morris - Only on BBS!

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 4/15/18
Screaming Jay & Eddie Chamblee

This week on Blues Before Sunrise we'll pay belated tribute to one of the Blues World's true originals - Screamin' Jay Hawkins. Like most others familiar with his work, we were saddened at news of his death in Paris back in 2000 at the age of 70. Jalacey Hawkins started as valet to Tiny Grimes and made his first records with Tiny in 1953. Since then he's recorded sporadically and performed steadily with one of the most unique acts in all of show business - rising from a closed coffin, wearing a velvet cape with a bone thru his nose and sharing the stage with his long-time partner Henry - a cigarette smoking skull, mounted on a walking staff - Jay's act was refreshingly bizarre and timelessly entertaining! His hit I PUT A SPELL ON YOU carried him for almost 50 years. BBS will pay tribute by featuring a hour's worth of seldom heard sides from his career and proud to say that of all the tributes to Jay after his death, we'll be the only one that won't be playing I GOT A SPELL ON YOU - there's too much other stuff that deserves to be heard. And you'll hear it right here!

We’ll spend the hour interspersing Screaming Jay with side by Eddie Chamblee.

 It's our Screamin' Jay Hawkins Tribute - Only on BBS!
