Induced to Judder [Playlist – 07/29/10]

Theme: New Orleans Trombones/ Phillip Walker Farewell/ More July Birthdays
The Juddermeister kicked the show off with a live recording from the local Grateful Dead tribute band Alligator recorded at WTJU for the folk marathon last year (the band is performing at the Jefferson Theater on Saturday). Followed with a long set of music from the bone men of New Orleans, trombonists that make the music swing. The second set was a tribute to Louisiana blues guitarist Phillip Walker who passed away last Thursday, July 22 of heart failure at age 73. The final set celebrated more July birthdays including jazz guitarists Kenny Burrell and Joel Harrison, pianist Michael Wolff, and jump blues drummer and band leader Roy Milton.
