Episode 402, 2 October 2013
This episode is brought to you by the letter O ... O is for Orchestra, blues orchestras! Its another episode in my 'ABCs of the Blues' series. I worked out that I could get the whole alphabet/ABCs series in this side of Christmas so heres goes! OK, so the first track isn't an orchestra, far from it, but the band does start with O and I heard the song this week and loved it so thats why you're getting a taste of it here. The orchestra I focus in on is a Grammy nominated Heritage Blues Orchestra. I think they'd be perfect for any blues festival (like Bluesfest in Byron Bay) or even the most intimate hall.
Next week its music brought to you by the letter P ... P is for PIANO blues!
