H. Johnson spotlights French vocal group, The Double Six of Paris
WABE’s H. Johnson has been a fixture on our station since 1978. As the host of both “Blues Classics” and “Jazz Classics,” H. continually educates and entertains WABE listeners every Friday and Saturday night.
H. joins “City Lights” every other Friday to share a bit from his breadth of jazz knowledge. The segment “H. Johnson’s Jazz Moment” explores selections from the best of H.’s music collection, along with tidbits from history, personal reflections, and his thoughts on the evergreen resonance of jazz.
In this segment, H. Johnson featured the vocal group, The Double Six of Paris. He played their song “Walkin’ (Un tour au bois).”
“Quincy Jones put together a group in France before he got together with Michael Jackson. The group is called The Double Six of Paris. Now, I listen to a lot of European music–Germany, France, Italy, Spain–but this group is fantastic. Their music doesn’t sound dated, they interpret our jazz music wonderfully,” said Johnson.
Catch H.’s “Blues Classics” tonight and every Friday at 10 p.m., and return for “Jazz Classics” every Saturday at 8 p.m., right here on 90.1 WABE.
