The parameters of gift giving around my family: no clutter. Something good to eat or drink? Sure. A book to read in print or on a digital platform? Good. And, music: tickets to a concert, a gift certificate to download, or an old-fashioned cd. Thank you, yes.
On the Blue Note this week, I’ll be sampling some of the cds released during 2011-2012 that I’ve particularly liked and recommend as gift possibilities. Tune in, Tuesday, December 4 from 3-5 pm, or listen later in the week.
Here are two favorites:
Jimmy Cliff, Rebirth (Universal Music)
Hans Theessink & Terry Evans, Delta Time (Blue Groove)
Tell me if you’ve come across any great blues, roots or related Americana music during the past year. Share here, please!
