Jazz Violin Blues a la Christian Howes & Robben Ford

I’ve been saving this musical gift for a gloomy winter day and this is it–buckets of gloom looming. Ahhhh. Okay, many of you are probably tired of my beating the drum for KKFI 90.1 fm Community Radio’s “Liberated Airwaves” as one volunteer DJ says.  But I’m going to beat the drum again for the all the great jazz it offers. Hear! Hear! One very cool thing about KKFI is that you  can “win” free music. Yes, even I who has dark star bad luck with all games of chance—can win a cd by being the 4th caller into Jazz in the Afternoon featuring a live in studio interview with jazz violinist Christian Howes. Yes, you read that right–Jazz Violinist.  I have no idea why I even decided to dial spin the opportunity.  I suspect Howes’ tunes worked some sort of magic on my mind. But I did–and to my surprise I landed in the right phone spot.  Out of the Blue arrived in my mailbox a few days later. Thank you! I’ve been enjoying its clear rich soundwave energy ever since. If you’re a jazz/blues fan  you can too.   This cd also offers guitarist Robben Ford’s magic fingers & Sharon Hendrix’s pipes on “Seek and Ye Shall Find.”
