FSQ selections this week tell a story through song. Martha High’s “(Ready to) Face My Future” isn’t some old soul stomper, it’s a tune from one of 2020’s brightest new soul releases. Chuck makes Martha High’s inspirational anthem his theme song for this January 29th program. Chuck’s “Future” includes “Feeling Free” by Leisure, and putting on Alaskalaska’s “Happyface”. Chuck exclaims “I’m Doing Fine” via blues man Albert King. But how just how long can he “Hold On” like Little Dragon’s new tune of the same name opines. The second hour features the rarest of cuts in special musical tributes to Funkadelic founder Billy Bass Nelson and Japanese jazz fusion sensei Masayoshi Takanaka. The New Music Ferry transports sonic cargo from all over the world including Latino disco from Colombia via Juan Paul Vega and Esteman’s “Eso Que Me Das”.
