Jazz and Blues saxophone player, Herman Green passed away at the age of 90 in Memphis on November 26, 2020. As I read up on him, I found his life to be amazing. I have attached his obituary below. It looks like he played with anybody that was anybody. A true musician’s musician. The YouTube link takes you to a track list, and I have also attached a video. It is over 10 minutes, and is quite interesting. Enjoy the work of this great player.

New number ones on both charts this week. We will begin with CBC2’s new number 1 single. Alabama Shakes are releasing a new album next moth and “Don’t Wanna Fight” is their 1st single off the album. Great song, reminiscent of some Bee Gee songs of the past, but done with the incredible of Brittany Howard. Amazing singer.
The album topping CKUA’s chart is Punch Brothers album “The Phosphorescent Blues”. Released in January, they have released 3 singles including “I Blew It Off”, which I have included for your pleasure. Kind of a bluegrass sound, very melodic.
Where in the H E Double Hockey Sticks did all that traffic come from. Glad it wasn’t yesterday or I would have never made it without pin-balling off someone. But made it I did, and just in time for the 7:40 tune.
Today’s song needs little commentary, Bob Dylan and “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues”. Turn it up, I think, volume is pretty low on my machine,
I am all about revival lately. Today I am going to revive a series on Canadian releases. I will try to stick to a Thursday schedule on this, but who knows! So let’s rock.
First up is a new album by Canadian power blues duo, The Pack A.D.. Released on Jan 28, it is titled “Do not Engage”. The song I have highlighted is “Big Shot”.
Light week, and I’m tired. Have a great week
