Yesterday we broke new ground on the Jazz Show, with a very special in-studio guest, Houston indie-rapper Fat Tony. It was an fantastic twist for the show as we connected the dots between Jazz and Rap, talked influences and even got a live on-air performance! Between talking with Tony and playing some of his brand new music, we spun jazz classics sampled for rap hits by artists like Bob James, Donald Byrd, Issac Hayes, Bobbi Humphrey, Dorothy Ashby, The Young-Holt Unlimited and much, much more. All in, it was an awesome show. If you missed it, you can hear Fat Tony’s newest single “MacGregor Park,” and watch the video here. Also, you can listen to some of the unknown classics we played here, here and here.
