"Informational, polished, sound-rich, Joe Bevilacqua strikes again with this superb documentary on the life and music of Louis Armstrong. The rich tapestry of music, interviews, and sound from the streets of New Orleans is expertly produced. In addition to some rare recordings, the program includes interviews with Wynton Marsalis and others that really add to what is primarily a music program, rather than detract from the focus of the program. The sound quality is excellent, and the vintage recordings have been cleaned up well. The program is both entertaining and informative, and held my interest for the entire hour. I highly recommend it." (Phil Corriveau, Wisconsin Public Radio)

Tenor saxophonist Jean-Baptiste Illinois Jacquet was an best remembered for his solo on "Flying Home" with Lionel Hampton, critically recognized as the first R&B saxophone solo. Although he was a pioneer of the honking tenor saxophone that became a regular feature of jazz playing and a hallmark of early rock and roll, Jacquet was a skilled and melodic improviser, both on up-tempo tunes and ballads. He doubled on the bassoon, one of only a few jazz musicians to use the instrument.

Jacquet was born to a Sioux mother and a Creole father in Broussard, Louisiana and moved to Houston, Texas, as an infant, and was raised there as one of six siblings. His father, Gilbert Jacquet, was a part-time bandleader. As a child he performed in his father's band, primarily on the alto saxophone. His older brother Russell Jacquet played trumpet and his brother Linton played drums.
Illinois Jacquet

At 15, Jacquet began playing with the Milton Larkin Orchestra, a Houston-area dance band. In 1939, he moved to Los Angeles, California, where he met Nat King Cole. Jacquet would sit in with the trio on occasion. In 1940, Cole introduced Jacquet to Lionel Hampton who had returned to California and was putting together a big band. Hampton wanted to hire Jacquet, but asked the young Jacquet to switch to tenor saxophone.

In 1942, at age 19, Jacquet soloed on the Hampton Orchestra's recording of "Flying Home", one of the very first times a honking tenor sax was heard on record. The record became a hit. The song immediately became the climax for the live shows and Jacquet became exhausted from having to "bring down the house" every night. The solo was built to weave in and out of the arrangement and continued to be played by every saxophone player who followed Jacquet in the band, notably Arnett Cobb and Dexter Gordon, who achieved almost as much fame as Jacquet in playing it. It is one of the very few jazz solos to have been memorized and played very much the same way by everyone who played the song.

The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block Returns to Cult Radio A-Go-Go! with New Comedy, Jazz and Documentary

NEW "Camp Waterlogg" on The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, weekly unscripted radio theater with Joe Bev, Lorie Kellogg, Jim Folly and Kenny Savoy, streamed Saturdays, 2:30 pm ET, 11:30 am PT at cultradioagogo.com


Napanoch, New York is a-buzz with sounds. Chickens cluck. A woodpecker drums a hallow stump. Water drips off the porch into an ice-covered trough. Joe Bev captures them. 





The veteran award-winning radio producer, along with his merry band of voice actors, traverse the woods of Camp Waterlogg, his real-life rustic Catskills home, which doubles as the backdrop for the fictional kids camp.

It is all part of "The Comedy-O-Rama Hour" which premieres new shows every Saturday at 2:30 pm ET, 11:30 pm PT on Internet Radio Powerhouse Cult Radio A-Go-Go! (http://www.cultradioagogo.com)

In real life and in the fiction of the radio theater, Joe Bevilacqua (that's his full name) asks his actors to climb trees, run through the snow, dance by waterfalls, all while ad-libbing complicated story-lines and portraying multiple characters.

LINK TO
CULT RADIO A GO GO!
Joe Bev himself voices Sgt. Lefty, Ellis the Boatkeeper, Lil Andy, Adam Maxwell, Woody, Sal Pilvers, and many others. More impressive is Bev's ability to play all these characters in one scene all at once, moving around the stereo landscape captured by his SONY IC Recorder.

"If I improvise Ellis and Lefty talking to each other, I might speak as Ellis on the left and as Sgt. Lefty on the right. This really completes the illusion that it is really two actors talking," reveals Bevilacqua.

In this week's opening scene, the character Olive Pitts is taking a bath, the Lorie Kellogg, the actress playing Olive, performed the scene IN the bathtub. Kellogg also voices Elise, Mrs. Terwilliger, Lkie, other characters.

"We have replaced recording radio theater in a cold studio, on a stationary microphone with a sound effect table with something more alive," adds Bev.

The result is a free-wheeling comedy that is also a sitcom and a radio theater.

On this Saturday's Comedy-O-Rama, entitled "Marriage Fever Hits Camp Waterlogg," Sgt. Lefty and Olive Pitts plan for their Valentine's day wedding, which conflicts with the "elderly Dance & Raffle" being held by Sal Pilvers (Joe Bev). Meanwhile, Luigi (Kenny Savoy) and Marcello (Jim Folly) arrive at the dance two weeks early.

It was announce on February 27 that Blackstone Audio, Inc., has entered into partnership with Joe Bev's Waterlogg Productions to providing its award-winning audiobooks to a wider audience.
