Boieldieu, Doug Cox, Salil Bhatt, Swing Era: Playlist for the Open Window for May 18, 2009

The Open Window airs at www.cjly.net (Kootenay Cooperative Radio) at 6:30am Mondays and 10am Sundays.

Doug Cox and Salil Bhatt: Blessings from Slide to Freedom (Northern Blues)

The blues and Indian music from Vancouver Island's resonator lap guitar guy Doug Cox. The cross genre improvisations are great; the covers of blues tunes so-so.

Boieldieu: Concerto for Harp--Paul Keuntz Chamber Orchestra of Paris; Marie-Claire Jamet, harp, from Boieldieu: Harp and Piano Concertos

Francois-Adrien Boieldieu (1775-1834)was an opera composer I had never heard of. This lovely concerto awakens me to the delicacy precision that is possible on the harp.

Erskine Hawkins, Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Carter, Gene Krupa, various pieces from The Swing Era: 1944-45 (Time-Life)

Swing bands from the time of my parents' youth.
