Call in to speak with the host
Darryl Gregory has had a widing journey to where he is today.
A classically trained trombonist he spent a decade or so playing in symphonies and big band jazz bands.
He has played Indonesian music with a group that creates their own instruments and does free improvisation as their basic form.
A guitarist and bassist who has alos played rock and roll, Darryl now calls his music Country with a hard edge, but Darryl’s sound is an amalgam of many different worlds, yet it is still recognizable as American roots, rhythm and blues.
His latest album, Big Texas Sky is full of some wonderful sounds and we will listen to cuts from itas we explore Darryl's career and life.
Then Bernie Pearl takes a seat.
Suggested by Joe Whitmer at The Blues Foundation I found Bernie's music irresitable.
Bernie learned his upbeat, finger-poppin' picking style at the elbows of bluesmasters like Sam 'Lightnin' Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb and Mississippi Fred MacDowell.
A life-long blues evangelist, Bernie began broadcasting Nothin' But the Blues on KPPC FM in 1968, making him L.A.'s first all-blues FM disc jockey.
I am excited to sit with Bernie to discuss this incredible career as we check out tunes from his album Old School Blues, a 2 album set with one electric and one acoustic.
PLUS, Will Johns comes back to The Couch to Preview his newest release, Hooks and Lines, which will drop later that week. Another Music on The Couch Preview!
