The Hot Box #074 – The Guitar Files – Part 7

The main event in The Hot Box 074 is a move to the Guitar Files Letter F. So we feature 3 greats from that file, Tal Farlow, Bill Frisell and Chris Flory. But there’s other stuff too. An exciting taster from Aoife Doyle’s upcoming new album, the single Strength to be Strong, and a track from Kevin Brady’s Electric Quartet upcoming world release “Plan B”.

Plus we find an amazing young guitarist from the D file who has just come to our attention, Graham Dechter, from his new album “Major Influence”.

The Hot Box #073 – Swing Classics

The 73rd episode of The Hot Box……

This time around the jazz hour has some swing classics and samples from two new albums that amount to “jazz archaeology”. A compilation of 1930’s recordings by very underappreciated trumpeter and singer Valaida Snow, and a – literally – lost session by the NEA Jazz Master – Sheila Jordan.

This episode also breaks the record for the number of tracks played in a Hot Box!
