About the show
Playing tracks by
Joe Morris, Lavern Baker, Nina Simone, The Robins, Ray Charles and more.
This mix kicks off down tempo with The Robins 'Smokey Joe's Cafe' and slowly steps up the pace with a couple of great tracks including 'Working In A Gold Mine' which has one of the best bass lines ever. Ruth Brown is up with her amazing voice singing about her rather close relationship with her 'Daddy Daddy'. We drink wine with Stick McGhee next closely followed by another killer Ruth Brown tune. Poor Lavern Baker is sandwiched between two Big Joe Turner tracks. Ray Charles has got a woman, 50 years later gold digging Kanye West has also got a woman. We finish with good advice, Jam up...It Don't Mean a Thing...Down in Mexico.
