123 Summer Dance set

A respite from weighty analyses of various people or groups, and a bit of relaxation with a Summer dance set, with a big dose of reggae-ish tracks because it’s hot and we don’t want to dance all night at a frantic pace.  I tried for a bit of diversity too, with jazz, blues, bossa nova and folk along with the rock, pop and reggae.

If you liked this show, let us know.  We already have one more in the pipeline.
