Today's musical edition features tracks from Cyril Diaz, The Mighty Sparrow, Lord Invader & His Calypso Rhythm Boys, Mighty Dougla, Round Table Knights Vs Bauchamp and more .... Carlos Malcom , the father of reggae, and more. Calypso is a style of Afro-Caribbean music that originated in Trinidad and Tobago during the early to mid 20th century. Its rhythms can be traced back to West African Kaiso and the arrival of French planters and their slaves from the French Antilles in the 1600s.
The music, which drew upon African and French influences, became the voice of the people, and was characterized by highly rhythmic and harmonic vocals, which was most often sung in a French creole and led by a griot.

A tribute to 'the Jazz Sage' Mose Allison, who passed away yesterday morning (15th November 2016) at age 89. Allison struck the perfect balance between New York hipster cool and down-home Mississippi folk wisdom, as he straddled the line between Delta Blues and Modernist Jazz with an easy unpretentiousness. Here are some of of his recordings - the word from Mose himself as well as lovingly crafted renditions of songs by Willie Dixon, Percy Mayfield, Willie Love, Sonny Boy Williamson, Duke Ellington, Johnny Fuller and Ray Noble. Musical edition features almost an hour of Allison wonderland!
