New Year & Tributes (Something Else! Radio 1/18/16)

New Year & Tributes - Something Else! Radio by on

This new show is kind of mixed, emotionally speaking.  Welcoming a new year is generally a happy thing and that is celebrated with some new music.  Like most tales with multiple characters, some didn't make it to the next chapter or exited the story soon after new events. We bid farewell to 3 long-time music artists who cast long shadows: Wilton Felder, saxophonist/bassist of The (Jazz) Crusaders and important session musicianNatalie Cole, daughter of Nat "King" Cole, renown singer/songwriter in her own right; and finally actor/musician/icon David Bowie.  On the new music tip there are tracks by Michael Franti, Makala Jazz Funk Band and Clown Dallas featuring Miranda Nicole.  A full track list is below.
