THE FRANTIC ONE! 05 – GET READY

The late great Ernie Durham is here with the first of five special programs taken from the Vintage Radio Vaults, recorded in the 1990s for WDET-FM in Detroit. When I was growing up outside of Flint, Michigan in the 1950s the Ernie Durham show on WBBC-AM radio was at the center of my musical consciousness; I listened every night for several years and gained my appreciation and knowledge of rhythm & blues from the Frantic One. Our fifth and final program in this series has recordings by B.B. King, The Ravens, Hank Crawford, Funkadelic, Brook Benton, Gene Allison, The Impressions, Rare Earth, and Famous Coachman.

THE ORIGINAL GROOVE YARD 170 – THE MASTERSOUNDS

The John Sinclair Foundation presents
THE MASTERSOUNDS
THE ORIGINAL GROOVE YARD 170
George Klein, July 28, 1991

George Klein presents a feature on The Mastersounds, a cooperative group based in Indianapolis IN. Formed in 1957, the band consisted of Buddy Montgomery, vibraphone; Monk Montgomery, Fender bass; Richie Crabtree, piano; and Bennie Barth, drums. The goal of the band was original compositions and compelling arrangements, mostly by Buddy, of popular songs and Broadway show tunes. In this hour we hear from their albums on the music from The King and I and Kismet, plus an album of primarily original material.

THE GROOVE YARD 168 – THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA

George Klein presents the 6th and final hour of a feature on tenor saxophonist Stan Getz who died in June 1991. This hour focuses on some very popular bossa nova recordings with Brazilians Laurindo Almeida, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto & his wife Astrud, who served as interpreter for the recording session and was called on to sing “The Girl from Ipanema,” which became a very big hit. After another recording with Astrud, the emphasis shifts to some straight ahead recordings from the late 1960s, where the Getz feature ends.
