This Week at CaféJazz.ca:
Part of our encore series - Ed #491 (original air August 31st, 2008)
On what was our opening show for Season 12 ... we're spotlighting award-winning guitarist Jim Adkins and the City Streets release on the showcase feature. Hour 2 brings new music and an exciting five-pack of Fresh Trax. Headlining are Warren Hill and Tim Bowman. There's something new from Oli Silk and from Vibes Alive featuring Dirk Richter and Randall Crissman, while rounding out the feature are Bill MacPherson and Nee Sackey recording as Native Vibe. Then a bit later in the same hour, we're balancing the new with the tried and true - this time that includes blasts from Acoustic Alchemy, Paul Hardcastle, and Alan Hewitt, as well as from Shilts, the former lead-man for Down to the Bone. Otherwise, the remainder of the show is seasoned with prime cuts from the likes of Norman Brown, Shakatak, Gota, and The Rippingtons!

On this edition, it's a special extended After Hours as we spotlight Acoustic Alchemy Then and Now. We've selected 16 tracks from 16 albums for a feature that comes in at nearly 80 minutes and one that spans over 20 years !
