Scott Joplin, Father of America's First Musical Genre
Blog Name: Johnny D's Jazz JournalAuthor: John D'Agostino Posted on: June 25, 2013

LEFT: Scott Joplin, “The King of Ragtime”; RIGHT: Scott Joplin House in St. Louis, Missouri, where the composer lived from 1900 to 1903. It is preserved as a State Historic Site.
    The June 23, 2013 edition of Johnny D’s Jazz Journal was the third all-new installment of a show I call “A Trip to the Keys: Jazz on the Family of Keyboard Instruments.” Naturally, such a show will prominently feature the most elegant, most expressive, most dynamic of keyboard instruments, the acoustic piano, but I always look forward to digging up examples of jazz played on organ, harpsichord, celeste, clavichord, synthesizer, and accordion or bandoneon.

In His Room: Jazz Smiles on Brian Wilson
Blog Name: Johnny D's Jazz JournalAuthor: John D'Agostino Posted on: June 21, 2013
Top left: 1966, Brian Wilson producing Pet Sounds; top right: bassist Carol Kaye (seated, foreground) and musicians during Pet Sounds sessions; above: Brian Wilson today

     I didn’t plan my June 16 show to coincide with Father’s Day — it was a coincidence, and, to be honest, a somewhat uncomfortable and cruelly ironic one. I’d been working for weeks on a jazz tribute to a great songwriter, Brian Wilson, founder and creative font of the Beach Boys, who definitely was not lucky in the daddy department. I wanted it to air as close as possible to Brian’s 71st birthday on Thursday, June 20. When my wife reminded me of that June 16 was Father’s Day, I thought, “Uh-oh.”
One World turns 2 as hosted by Marcus!
Blog Name: One WorldAuthor: Marcus Rosario Posted on: June 19, 2013
Just wanted to let everyone know that One World under my hosting turns 2 today so I threw together a commemorative two-part mix to showcase a lot of favorites and what not. It's been a very crazy fun time and I'm glad to be able to share music from around this planet we call home every Wednesday night. As for the mix itself, I left out a lot of favorites and will upload the second part of the mix very soon. Mad love and thanks to everyone who's locked in over these past two years far and wide! (Tracklist posted after the jump!)
