The apple-tastic program known as 'Logic' has killed my mix. I am uploading a new version of Jesse LaMonica as we speak. Until then, make do with the one that is up (which somehow turned out in mono)...


OK, it's fixed now... enjoy the new mix.

019: Jesse LaMonaca

Jesse LaMonaca has been popping up at bars and clubs all over San Diego with his guitar or accompanied by his incredibly good-looking band, The Dime Novels. He always manages to appear on City Beat's weekly concert picks, and last year's release "Until The Stars Came Out" was up for a San Diego Music Award for Best Americana Album. This week we're bringing you some new tunes from Jesse joined by Dime Novels guitarist Brandon Conway.

-Shoot The Messenger
-Other Side Of The World
-Left Coast Sunshine

017: The Danny Green Trio

OK, 17 is legal in some states... For our Dirty 17th, we brought back some regulars: Danny Green on fender rhodes, Julien Cantelm on drums, and first-time-guest Justin Grinnell on electric bass.

Danny is a pianist and a jazz composer with so much output he recently had to find a bigger apartment to store all his arrangements. He's recently struggled with an addiction to Brazilian jazz, and is a regular at Brazil camp in NorCal where he's rubbed elbows with Chico Pinheiro, Edu Ribeiro, Marcos Silva, and other real brazilians. We get an exclusive preview (all-electric trio versions) of a few tunes from his upcoming CD.
