Vinyl Vault brings you Hillbilly Jazz

Jan 3, 2019

The stock show is in town and that means Denver is full of cowboys and cowgirls, even more than normal. So the Vinyl Vault takes its cue and this week presents “Hillbilly Jazz” a 1975 double album featuring a number of jazz standards done up with fiddle and steel guitar. We’ll hear Ellington’s “C Jam Blues,” Ray Noble’s “Cherokee,” “Sentimental Journey,” some Benny Goodman and the blues standard “Sittin’ On Top of the World.” The album was more or less the brainchild of virtuoso fiddler Vassar Clements. The album also features David Bromberg on guitar and Doug Jernigan on steel guitar among others. So cowboy-up and dig the Vinyl Vault Tuesday at 8:30 pm with host Geoff Anderson on KUVO Jazz.
