CHARLIE HUNTER & SCOTT AMENDOLA (NEW Release & Live!), STEFON HARRIS & Good Vibes + more…this week on MOJA Radio!
What a week here on The World’s MOdern JAzz Radio Channel and we begin with a salute to the legendary vocalist GEORGE BENSON on Monday March 10th. This Tuesday you’ll hear our patented features THE ATTACK OF THE JAZZY JAMBANDS and THIS IS ACID JAZZ, with the music and comments from the man who created the genre, English Pirate Radio DJ Gilles Peterson. Wednesday and Sunday we’ll present the first of our specials celebrating two MOJA greats who are longtime friends and collaborators, drummer SCOTT AMENDOLA & 7-string guitar wiz CHARLIE HUNTER, with a rare performance by THE SCOTT AMENDOLA BAND featuring Charlie, Jenny Scheinman and Nels Cline on LIVE @ MOJALand, followed on Thursday by THE ALL NEW MUSIC REVUE where we’ll debut 5 new ones including the latest recorded collaboration between Scott & Charlie titled Pucker. On Friday you’ll hear the first of our specials celebrating the young master of the vibes, STEFON HARRIS, who turns 41 on March 23rd. It’s a tip of the hat to the masters of the instrument that Stefon plays, as we present five vibraphonists from the Fusion Era on FRIDAY FUSION.
