Instrumental Invasion, 2/16/22 February 17, 2022

The February 16 Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was the last show recorded in 2021. One hour per day was recorded on December 28 and 29.

The playlist was created on December 26 with annotations and the script draft on the 27th.

Return to Forever appeared in the first segment for the second week in a row and it was also the second week in a row with a Rippingtons song featuring saxophonist Kirk Whalum. The show was chock full of past and present members of the Rippingtons.

I mentioned that Nelson Rangell recorded “The Island” under its translated original title (“To Begin Again”), but I didn’t mention that he also whistled “How Insensitivelive at Smooth Jazz for Scholars in 2013. In that case, he did not disclose its original Portuguese title, “Insensatez.” Depending on your source, that translates to “foolishness” or “foolish one.” Marilyn Bergman, co-writer of “The Island” with her husband Alan, died on January 8, just over a week after I recorded this show.
