Some Jazz on February Friday Evenings

Anyone caring to listen to jazz on a Friday evening in February could tune their Internet knob to WVUD.  I'll be sitting in for the regular host of "Avenue C', a weekday jazz program that runs from 9:00 to 11:00 pm EST for the next 3 of 4 Fridays, beginning with tonight's broadcast.  Each week will vary with musical offerings.  Tonight, I'm planning a heavy dose of Lafayette Gilchrist, Will Bernard, Jenny Scheinman, Charlie Hunter, Soulive, and some surprises.  As always when I'm playing any jazz @ WVUD, there will be some B3-Hammond, so you can expect some Jimmy Smith, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Joey DeFrancesco, and other keyboard wizards.  Give it a listen, starting tonight @ 9:00.

..and one more quick note.  For anyone who fell in love with Karen Russell's writing as displayed in her quirky collection of short stories (some published in the New Yorker), "St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves", news that her first novel, "Swamplandia!", is available is welcome indeed.  The novel is a further exploration/exposition of one of her short stories, "Ava Wrestles the Alligator".   The short story is available for reading here  An excerpt of the novel is available here
