Brendan Smith - Part One Brendan Smith is a legendary underground guitar player and songwriter from Sonoma County Calif. Now, "legendary underground" is oxymoronic if not ironic, it means he is really good and not that many people know about him. I’ve known about him for 40 years, and he is my favorite songwriter. He also plays ripping electric guitar in the band Uncle Wiggly, along with John Heide, Tom Padrick, Jeff Forehan and me. In the 70’s he made a cassette of 8 of his songs and then...

By Blair Hardman Jim Boggio was called the King of the Stomach Steinway, and the Lord of the Belly Baldwin. Keyboard magazine said he was one of the three best accordion players in the United States at the time of his death in 1996. But he was more than a great musician.

Ken Nordine, the Word Jazz Man

More
Ken Nordine was a huge influence on me from the first time I heard his “Word Jazz“ album when I was 16 years old. I loved his profound yet kindly voice, and his offbeat stories combined with cool jazz. I even got to interview him once in 1992 on KSRO AM, along with mega harmonica player Howard Levy. Ken was a voice-over and recording artist, best known for his series of Word Jazz albums and Word Jazz NPR radio shows. He had a deep, resonant and kindly voice. Ken has also done thousands of...
