Reclaimed Soul: Chicago Soul meets Blues

vocaloreclaimedsoul:

Chicago is known worldwide for its electrified Delta Blues. Chicago’s also known for its sweet Soul Music. And during the 1960s, those musical traditions combined at a tiny record label based at a famous West Side Chicago record shop. This week, Reclaimed Soul’s Ayana Contreras shares hip, soul-flavored blues from the Four Brothers label. Check out Wednesday’s preview on WBEZ’s Morning Shift.

The full set will air live tonight (Thursday July 31st) on Reclaimed Soul at 8pm (CST) on 89.5fm & 90.7fm, streaming live at http://vocalo.org

Reclaimed Soul: Funky Funky Bacharach

vocaloreclaimedsoul:

The melody for 1967’s Bacharach/David classic “The Look of Love” was inspired by Bond Girl Ursula Andress; and that iconic melody has inspired countless artists to record their own versions of the song. Reclaimed Soul’s Ayana Contreras brings us a selection of soulful vintage covers of “The Look of Love”. Plus, we hear groovy covers of other Bacharach compositions, as well (like “Walk on By” and “I Say a Little Prayer”).

For fresh episodes of Reclaimed Soul, listen in Thursdays at 8pm CST on vocalo.org, or tune in to 89.5fm (NW Indy) and 90.7fm (CHI)
