A View Into Hootie’s Blues

In partnership with Groovy Grant long-time DJ on KKFI 90.1 FM, we present a newly released album: Jay McShann Live in Tokyo. This widely unheard album was recorded live during an April 9th, 1990 show at Indigo Blues, The ACT, Shinjuku, Tokyo. Featuring Jay McShann on piano and vocals, Lynn Seaton on bass and vocals, and Chuck Riggs, on drums, this album consists of nine songs, including Charlie’ Parker’s Jumpin’ the Blues.

Programming will include tracks off the new album, audio clips of past interviews with McShann, and an open Q&A session with Groovy Grant and Gerald Dunn, Director of Entertainment and Blue Room General Manager.
