Instrumental Invasion, 2/9/22 February 10, 2022

The February 9 Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was recorded one hour per day on December 20 and 21, 2021. Pickups were also recorded on the 21st and on January 2nd after learning of guitarist Nick Colionne’s passing on New Year’s Day.

The playlist was created on December 19 with annotations and the script draft on the 20th, followed immediately by recording.

The Closer We Get” by Dave Koz and “Heart to Heart” by Norman Brown made their second appearance as they were singles in mid-December. “The Closer We Get” was first played on January 6, 2021, and “Heart to Heart” on September 30, 2020.

Four of the first five songs were originally considered for last week’s show, but dropped when the duration standard was reduced from 18:30 to 18:00. Those songs were:

The “fun fact” I shared in the January 26 post made it to air this week while back-selling “Captain Marvel.” This was the first show where I didn’t refer to bassist James Cammack as Jim, while back-selling “Pittsburgh,” and the show where I finally learned guitarist Ramon Stagnaro had been misidentified as Stagnero in album credits, leading me in previous shows to use an Italian pronunciation (“stahn-yair-o”). 3/7 UPDATE: It turns out I got the Italian pronunciation right; it was pronounced “stun-yahr-o.” I say “was” because, sadly, Ramon died February 16, a week after this show aired.

After this show, the only song I haven’t played from Jay Rowe‘s Groove Reflections album is the last track, “Almost Kool.”
