Thursday Night the 24th between 8pm & Midnight: THE WOOD BROTHERS - The Muse

They've made great music with their own respective bands (Medeski, Martin & Wood, and King Johnson), but for the last 8 or so years Chris and Oliver Wood have "reunited" for a trio with percussionist Jano Rix.  This new one, produced by Buddy Miller, is without a doubt a Top 10 favorite of ours here at 'NCW.  Jazzy honky tonk gospel blues throughout this Thursday evening, courtesy of The Wood Brothers!

Tuesday the 15th at 11am: JAMES HUNTER

One of WNCW DJs' favorite artists of late is British R&B powerhouse James Hunter.  “He’s one of the best voices and best kept secrets in British R&B and soul", says Van Morrison, who hired him to be his backup singer.  His first two albums earned him two Billboard Blues #1′s and tours with Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, Etta James, and Willie Nelson.  This year's album, Minute By Minute, is a brilliant collaboration with Daptone Records cofounder Gabriel Roth.

Thursday the 17th at 11am: SCOTT MILLER

Scott Miller is one of those artists who embody all that is WNCW more than most any other.  First fronting the V-Roys, then his backing band The Commonwealth, the Shenandoah Valley native has been a Knoxville musician for many years, but has now returned to his Virginia soil.  His new release Big Big World marks another move for him, and we'll hear more about it when Miller joins us for an interview Thursday morning before his Asheville show.

Monday Night October 14th at 8pm: FELA KUTI - Black Man's Cry

He has often been considered Africa's version of Bob Marley, and for good reason. But his political intensity was far greater.  With his synthesis of West African highlife, funk, jazz, and traditional Yoruba rhythms, underneath call-and-response vocals covering potent political and social topics, Fela's Afrobeat sound spread throughout the African Diaspora and the entire world.  This 1992 collection captures highlights of his band's incredible grooves and powerful delivery in the mid-'70's.  Nigeria's Fela Anikulapo-Kuti would be 75 this Tuesday if he were still with us.

Thursday Night the 17th between 8pm & Midnight: NEKO CASE - The Worse Things Get...

Check out Neko Case's first couple records, and you might consider her a honky-tonk/country singer.  She actually got her start playing drums in a punk band.  ....No wonder we love her.  Case's latest album comes following a series of rough spots, including the loss of both parents, and a grandmother she was even closer to.  And then there's the mother she overheard in the Honululu airport.... This new one has been getting a tidal wave of great reviews, as both her strongest and her strangest.
