Global A Go-Go presents:

One of the pleasures of hosting a radio show is the opportunity it affords me to bang the drum for artists who deserve wider recognition.  Skip McDonald, who records as Little Axe (pictured above) is high on my list of those artists.

McDonald is best known as the guitarist in two of the seminal studio bands of our era: the house band at Sugarhill Records (where he played on the pioneering hip hop recordings of Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambaataa) and Tackhead (the London band that powered Adrian Sherwood’s On-U Sound Records, uniting funk, dub and industrial music).

But he started with the blues, learning guitar from his father at age eight, and the Little Axe project ties together all of his musical experience — it’s the blues meets dub and trip-hop.  This week on Global A Go-Go I’ll play you three tracks from the extensive Little Axe catalog (12 albums so far), including one from his most recent release, London Blues.

Also this week: a Latin music sampler – trova, bachata, Latin soul and salsa; brass bands from India and the Balkans; and new sounds from Fela Kuti’s sons Femi and Seun.
