Macy Blackman live on Fog City Blues tonight

MacySmile.jpg

Hearing Macy Blackman is like stepping into an uptown New Orleans club such as the Dew Drop Inn circa 1955. He and his band, The Mighty Fines, forge a synthesis between early New Orleans Jazz and the R&B of the early '50's. Their new album, Friskin' The Whiskers, was conceived as a record for swing dancing, but it’s so expertly done by the Mighty Fines that it makes for great listening - even if you just sit there. Macy joins hosts Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday 5/06 at 9 pm.
