+ LAST WEEK’S PLAYLIST

 

 

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 7/23/17
SPOTLIGHT ON COUNT HASTINGS

This week on Blues Before Sunrise we listen to recordings that feature the tenor sax of Lowell 'Count' Hastings. Starting in the years immediately after WWII and extending to the late 1950s Count Hastings was an in-demand session man, working with literally dozens of different R&B artists - from Wynonie Harris to Annie Laurie. Plus he put in two extended stays with Louis Jordan and with Earl Bostic. We'll work through as many different records by a variety of artists as time allows. The R&B tenor sax of Count Hastings - Only on BBS!
