The Blues with a Bix Beiderbecke commentary!


This coming Saturday night, January 31st, at 11pm, The Blues will begin with a just-released collaboration of Gov't Mule and John Scofield from their new cd, Sco-Mule.  "Hottentot" will be followed by Miles Davis's "Tutu" and Joe Cocker's "Respect Yourself."  The second set will feature Keb'Mo, Eric Bibb, and Cyndi Lauper.

And, the third set is a commentary by music historian Dave Lewis on the musician Bix Beiderbecke who was born in 1903 in Davenport.  Dave's research details Bix Beiderbecke's connections to the Cincinnati area.

Here's the audio for the Bix Beiderbecke commentary by Dave Lewis.

By the way, Gov't Mule and John Scofield will be touring together from mid-February through March this year.  They'll be in Indianapolis on February 28th and then on to Columbus March 1st.
