    Episode 102: Erika Wennerstrom of the Heartless Bastards

    Episode 102: Erika Wennerstrom of the Heartless Bastards

    Rob and Seth chatted with Erika Wennerstrom of the Heartless Bastards shortly after she and her band had released the single, "Revolution." Erika talks about the message of the song, and how it is a part of a record that will be the first full-length release from Heartless Bastards in over five years. We hear the song in its entirety, and we hear Erika talk about how the record was completed just before COVID locked us all in our homes.  We include a bunch of music from her debut solo record "Sweet Unknown" because Erika explains to us in detail about how the forthcoming Heartless Bastards release in many ways expands on themes that were a huge part of that brilliant debut solo release. She also shares with us how she has coped with her time during the pandemic. We also go into the Wayback Machine and learn of her early days in Dayton, and why she moved to Cincinnati. We also find out how her persistence there, and her insistence on playing a wildly under-attended gig in Akron would each serve to change her life forever. This episode covers plenty of other territory, and it demonstrates that Erika is a very sincere and thoughtful person beyond her writing and performing excellence.

    In honor of Como de Allstars, the first studio release from Greyboy Allstars in 7 years, Seth and Rob share a recent a Zoom chat with Robert Walter (keyboards) and Elgin Park (guitar) of the band. We learn a good bit about the ethos that these two and Karl Denson (sax, vocals), Chris Stillwell (bass) and Aaron Redfield (drums) had in mind when recording the seductive new release. They talk about how the initial genesis of the record came out of what was initially unfortunate circumstances, and why they chose to release the record when they did. Then in honor of the re-release of the band's debut cd West Coast Boogaloo, Seth dusts off the Wayback Machine and we visit the early days of the band as a touring unit, and the hilarious story about how their debut was recorded.  Many other topics are discussed, and truths are told.

    Episode 99: Billy Cobham

    Episode 99: Billy Cobham

    Last Fall, Billy Cobham invited Rob Turner into his hotel room for a career-spanning discussion.  This was between shows during the Atlanta stop of Cobham's tour in support of Crosswinds Project: Time Lapse Photos. Cobham talks about the ethos behind this project, and how he ended up finding JUST the right musicians for it. Billy also talks about the book Six Days At Ronnie Scotts's - a book written by his long-time friend Brian Gruber which examines Cobham's history, takes an inside look at how Billy puts a band together and is a lesson in jazz (and music) history in general. Billy also brings forth stories about working with Miles Davis on Bitches Brew, creating/recording/touring with Mahavishnu Orchestra, how his relationship with Merl Saunders led to him work with Muhammed Ali, how he ended up collaborating with members of The Grateful Dead and many, many other things. He also talks about how a powerful tree inspired one of his compositions, and an adventurous tribute to the Mahavishnu Orchestra that featured over 100 musicians (and why it was never released).

    Ryan Stasik (with Kevin Cassels joining for an Oldschool Umph chat)

    This week's episode centers around a chat that our producer Rob Turner had with Ryan Stasik (Doom Flamingo, Umphrey's McGee) and music expert Kevin Cassels (Mother Vinegar, Pleasure To Burn) about the early days of Umphrey's McGee. The trio discusses pre-Umphrey's bands, how material evolved, line-up changes, specific shows, songwriting ethos and many other elements of those halcyonic early days. Since the conversation took place in Asheville this February, the COVID19 pandemic has shut down most aspects of society, including concerts. So, for the introduction to this episode, Seth Weiner and Rob call Ryan to discuss how he is currently finding inspiration during this confusing moment in time.

Great In Depth Interviews with Top Musicians

These are really highly researched interviews with musicians I love. They do their homework, have fun, and get a lot out of the folks they talk to. Check it out!

Phil Collins

Not sure why the Phil Collins’ banger “Inside Out” is not the permanent intro song. And Rob, slow down.No need to talk that fast the Cobham interview was unlistenable and he's my all time favorite drummer.
