Anthony Coleman / Groove-A-Thon
You could refer to Anthony Coleman’s “Groove-A-Thon” SoFlo Radio show as the “Electric Bass-A-Thon” and you’d be spot on. Aside from his astute (and wry) commentary on the American body politic, among other topical issues of the human condition with his co-host/producer Jorge Rodriquez, Mr. Coleman – a transplanted New Yorker residing in South Florida (are there any other kind?) - spins sides that are rooted in rhythm by way of Leo Fender’s finest creation and its permutations thereof.
I’ve been threatening to publish an interview with AC and I swear I will do so in 2018 – go figure how I could condense this cat in 850 words! Groove-A-Thon is an indispensable education on groove music and the art of the electric bass. Hear him live or via his archives on http://sofloradio.com/
To my ears, it’s the best radio from the bottom up. Listen up!
