On Sunday 5/19 from 2-3 pm, Divaville Lounge will host an in-studio interview with Durham's swing orchestra, the Mint Julep Jazz Band. Bandleader and trombonist Lucian Cobb and singer Laura Windley will talk about performing live swing music in the modern era, play songs from their new CD "Durham on Saturday Night," and play some of their favorite classic songs from the 1930s and 40s. Tune in for a swinging afternoon!
In tribute to Clarence Clemons who died yesterday, today's Divaville Lounge will celebrate the saxophone. We'll hear saxophone legends like Sidney Bechet, Ben Webster, Charlie Parker, Coleman Hawkins, Illinois Jacquet, Woody Herman, Johnny Hodges, Lester Young, John Coltrane and many more. Tune in for two hours of Sax Heroes.
Step into the Divaville Lounge on Sunday, March 27 as we pay tribute to the divine Sarah Vaughan! Vaughan's powerful voice and distinctive phrasing made her one of the most important jazz singers of the 20th century. In this tribute program, guest hosted by DJ Georg, we'll hear two hours of Sassy beginning with her very first recording in 1944, and ending with a track from her last full-length album in 1987. Along the way we'll hear Vaughan performing with Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Clifford Brown, Count Basie, Quincy Jones, Sergio Mendes and Milton Nascimento. Tune in for an afternoon of Sassy!
