It’s called “Long Play” and it gives Nightside host Andy O’ the opportunity to explore the longest tracks of the KUVO library.
“Mean Lene” (15:22) from “In the Beginning” by Hubert Laws Featuring Ronnie Laws, Bob James, Ron Carter, Steve Tadd and Clare Fischer. A five star Recording of Special Merit. Hubert Laws at his best!
“The Creator Has a Master Plan” (19:17) from “Karma” by Pharoah Sanders 1969. Leon Thomas on vocals. A truly iconic recording that introduced many, if not most, to the legendary singer Leon Thomas a modern griot who perfected Jazz yodeling and allowed Pharoah to showcase his own ideas as a tenor saxophonist protege of John Coltrane.
“The Sun Myth” (17:42) from “HelioCentric Worlds of Sun Ra Volume 2” recorded in 1965 by Sun Ra in a seemingly wild free form session that was actually under tight rein by Sun Ra and features Marshall Allen, John Gilmore, Pat Patrick, and Ronnie Boykins.
Long Play, a deep dive during the last hour of The Nightside into the music that time forgot.
Tune in to The Nightside with Andy O’ on Sunday night, April 18, from 8 to midnigh
