Monday Night July 7th at 8pm: HANK MOBLEY - Soul Station

His legacy may not be as memorable as that of Coltrane, Rollins, or Young, but Hank Mobley's work as tenor saxophonist and bandleader was one of the most solid of the swing and bop eras of the 50's and 60's.  After playing with Horace Silver, Dizzy Gillespie, and Max Roach among others, he started fronting his own tight quartet, as can be heard on this 1960 classic with Art Blakey on drums, Paul Chambers on bass, and Wynton Kelly on piano.  Hank Mobley, born 7/7/30 in Eastman, GA, and still revered here on WNCW.

Monday Night June 30th at 8pm: GREG BROWN - The Poet Game

If there is a poet laureate for Iowa, or perhaps the Midwest in general, it should be Greg Brown.  On this album from '94, Brown's unique spin of poetry and storytelling begins with a flashback to riding in his parents' "Brand New '64 Dodge", and the loss of faith and innocence America felt that year.  From there he describes life in a typical American "Boomtown", offers a unique comparison between "Jesus and Elvis", and reflects on young love, lost friends, and modern-day America in the title track.  Celebrate Greg Brown's July 2nd birthday with us and this gem that has held up quite well
