Free Lunch for Tuesday, Feb. 18 2003

Chattanooga, TN – John Hammond's new album, Ready for Love, is the featured album for Tuesday's Free Lunch on WUTC radio.

Ready for Love is a difficult album to describe. Its random assortment of songs makes it extremely difficult to pinpoint a theme. And I'm a bit perplexed as to the motivation behind covering such songs as Spider And The Fly, by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and the George Jones hit, Just One More. Nevertheless, Hammond manages to carry the different song styles in his own and very unique way.

Chattanooga, TN – The Free Lunch this Tuesday features the renowned guitarist, Ry Cooder and Cuban legend Manuel Galban, with their collaboration of catchy, instrumental surf music.

It's been 15 years since Ry Cooder released an album that featured him as the artist and producer, but it was worth the wait. Mambo Sinuendo pairs Cooder with Cuban guitar sensation, Manuel Galban.

Together they have created a masterpiece of sunny rhythms in the style of the Ventures with the aid of Galban's "twangy guitar."
