The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 265

Legends Mix

A mixed bag of goodies again, as always from the twenties to the fifties, all part of the DNA of all popular music - everywhere in the world it bears the traces of the blues and the jazz. I end today's show with the miraculous paradox how the music of a systematically discriminated and segregated part of America's people could so dominantly influence our musical culture.

And of course there's the music itself. Two train songs, a jazz classic that never made it to a jazz classic, heartbreak and infidelity and two demonic bluesmen - the one a bit more than the other.
