A Constant Search for New Music
Below are a few examples of the musical scholarship the we pursue at Lester the Nightfly (LTNF). Each week, each show, we take a new approach to music. We feature music fans a lot. Occasionally we have musicals join the conversation. And plenty of time we just jump into a genre head-long to see what we can find. It’s an adventure. You never know what you’re going to get on Lester the Nightfly.
A radio show for the musically curious LTNF
An Interview with Ralph “Cork” Burroughs
Cork and I thought we were just going to do another LTNF music show. Talk a bit. Play a track. Move on to the next song. Well, thanks to the beauty of radio, the ability to dive into our record collections, and Cork’s riveting stories, this episode of Lester the Nightfly took on a life of its own.
Born in the north, raised in Alabama, Cork (an self-described “long hair”) found himself through the music of the early to late 1960’s. James Brown. Jimi Hendrix. Howlin’ Wolf, The Almond Brothers, Janis Joplin filled his ears. And on a clear night, the music from far away came to Cork in Alabama — from WLS in Chicago… and even stations in New York.
Chick Corea – Mellow & Brilliant
My one thing is I continue to be interested and want to be a student. I don’t want to be a master. When I’m learning something, I’m in my element.Chick Corea
My dad was all about music. He was a musician, leading a band when I was born. His band was active all through the 40’s. He’d started it in the late 20’s and 30’s. According to the scrapbook, his band was doing quite well around the Boston area. During the Depression they were on radio. It was a jazz-oriented band. He was a trumpet player, and he wrote and arranged for the band. He taught me how to play the piano and read music, and taught me what he knew of standard tunes and so forth. It was a fantastic way to come up in music. – Chick Corea
