Brotherly Mud on Listening Lyrics this Friday Febuary 1, 2019 at 4:00PM

Brotherly Mud is as if the 60's and 70's folk tradition continued into the modern day, taking influence from today's songwriters while respecting yesterday's honesty.

With members graduating from the Berklee College of Music and the Musician's Institute, Brotherly Mud respects the art of musical creation through both an educational and deeply human lens.

Constantly working to be true to their artistic spirits, Brotherly Mud is currently touring with their original material all over the West Coast, with shows, radio interviews and the occasional secret performance.

Jazz After Dark January 08 2019

Coming up tonight on Jazz After Dark:

A ‘new’ album from Erroll Garner is always something to celebrate! A 1964 live recording from the Royal Concert Hall in Amsterdam, “mixed and mastered from new transfers of the original 3-track analog tapes found in Garner’s personal archive,” was just released in 2018. We’ll hear three selections.

Our other featured performer is Sonny Stitt, prolific sax player from the early 1940’s to the early 1980’s. Plus works by Eva Cassidy, Johnny Hodges, Oscar Peterson with Lester Young, Ella Fitzgerald, Rob Agerbeek , and Monty Alexander.
