New Jazz Video Series


A few of you may already know I've brought back the YouTube channel for this show. I've also started a new series of videos: "2:22 LP Review" where I review the album's contents and when applicable, show you it's neat or unusual artwork; needle drops included! All within the span of two minutes and twenty two seconds which, if you know me, can be challenging! Above is the latest installment - an outlier in the vast output of the Modern Jazz Quartet. Thanks for watching and have a great day!

New Video Series Reviews Lesser Known Jazz Albums from 70's and 80's

The 70's in particular were a befuddled time for jazz. Artists didn't know which way to turn to keep or secure an audience. A lot of albums were made in a lot of sub-genres by a lot of artists. For the jazz connoisseur, it can be tricky knowing which albums to avoid, and which ones are hidden gems. Record collectors can waste good money on platters they'll never spin after that first awful time. Not everyone has the free time to spend hours on Youtube listening to entire albums, trying to find the one worthwhile track tucked away between quarter hours of disco nothingness. 

So I decided to do a video series (everyone's doing it) that helps you in your pursuit of musical bliss: "Should I Listen To It"; where I give you the verdict on lesser-known albums from the 70's and 80's while I whip up something delicious in my very casual and often messy kitchen. It's all in good fun, and of course it's just my opinion! If you enjoy - sharing, liking, subscribing are all very much appreciated! Thanks for stopping by!- Kendo

Overlooked Gems - Sylvia Herold & the Rhythm Bugs

"The Spider and the Fly" - Sylvia Herold & the Rhythm Bugs

It's true, nothing groundbreaking here. (Honestly - after subbing a few times on the "New Jazz Monday" show at WFCF, I've discovered that very little is, currently.) But it's very fun, swings, is well performed and it has vibes!! (Christian Tamburr, no less.) In my book that's a major win. The video is appropriately silly - also a win. :) Enjoy!! - DJ Kendo

You can buy a copy at Sylvia's website and also at Itunes.
