[From 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday]
Fabulous chat tonight with jazz guitarist and singer/songwriter Leni Stern about her life, her music and her new album, “Smoke, No Fire.” She performs Friday night at 6 On The Square in Oxford; learn more about that show at 6onthesquare.org and more about Leni at lenistern.com. Here’s what we played of hers:
“Smoke, No Fire”
“Awn Te Kalo Ye”
Then, after the events roundup, Press & Sun-Bulletin correspondent and Binghamton U. student Mike Giordano discussed his story about Friday’s show from Bow Thayer & Perfect Trainwreck at Cyber Cafe West in Binghamton. Learn more at bowthayer.com and cybercafewest.com. We played two songs from their new CD, “Eden”:
“The Beauty of All Things.”
And we capped it off with one more track from Leni: “Spirit in the Water” (featuring Kofo the Wonderman).
Next Tuesday at 7 p.m., I’ll interview singer/songwriter Erica Leigh about her new EP, “Puzzle Heart.” And since tonight was the last show of the spring semester, it means we’ll be back to three-hour shows starting next week. More time for new and different tunes.
