.If Led Zeppelin came from New Orleans, they might have sounded like Medicine King: a hard-rocking, funky, bluesy, in-your-face power trio that can swing like a French Quarter street parade. 
Guitarist/vocalist Dave Isaacs, bassist/vocalist Brook Sutton, and drummer/percussionist Robert Crawford met working clubs in Nashville's fertile singer-songwriter scene. While the band started out playing Isaacs' songs as the "Dave Isaacs Trio", Sutton and Crawford brought so much creativity and energy to the project, including new music, that a true partnership soon developed. "There's no leader in this band, we're just not good at doing what we're told" says Sutton. But in live performance it's clear that each takes their turn leading the way, often spontaneously, and the lively interaction between all three personalities is undeniable both onstage and off. A song might take off in a new direction at any moment, but no matter how far the music stretches, it can snap from the edge of chaos back into the groove in an instant.
The Medicine King sound is a meeting of New Orleans and Nashville spiked with a dose of '60's psychedelia: swampy grooves and savvy songwriting, delivered with an irreverent rock-and-roll attitude and a fearless improvisational spirit. It's dynamic and powerful music played with fierce, joyous abandon. You know what's up!

All Milton Brown did was invent a unique and popular style of music, then die before anybody congratulated him on his accomplishment. Carolyn Martin, recently decided to shine a light on Milton Brown. Martin, who was inducted into the Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame in 2011, released a new album called "A Platter of Brownies: The Music of Milton Brown."  Tennessean

Carolyn Martin
Singer Carolyn Martin has been described as “… a winning throwback to the days where emotion was measured and artful rather than loud and histrionic.” From European concert halls to intimate venues at home in Nashville, fans have come to know Carolyn as a vocalist with a unique sense of musical style, a charismatic stage presence and a voice that exudes passion and experience – the soulful elegance that is the very essence of music.
Carolyn is a Texas born, Nashville based swing singer and member of the Texas Western Swing Hall Of Fame. She was the recipient of the Academy of Western Artists’ Will Rogers award as the Western Swing Female Vocalist of the Year in 2008, 2010, and 2014. The Western Music Association named Carolyn’s “Cookin’ With Carolyn” CD the Western Swing Album of the Year . Carolyn’s “Tennessee Local” CD topped the Western Swing charts for 6 months and was in the Top 10 Western Swing Albums for more than a year after its release. Carolyn’s composition “Swing On” (from “Tennessee Local””, was named by the Swingin’ West radio show as 2013’s Western Swing Song of the Year. In addition to these awards, the Cowtown Society of Western Swing has named Carolyn a “Hero of Western Swing” and she is a 2014 inductee into the Northwest Western Swing Music Society Hall Of Fame.
Carolyn’s latest CD, “A Platter Of Brownies: The Music of Milton Brown” pays homage to the Father of Western Swing, Milton Brown. Brown, along with his band the Musical Brownies, was a seminal figure in the development of what we now know as western swing.
Carolyn grew up with music in the air. “The stable where I kept my horse had a radio tuned to the local country music station, and in addition to what we now call traditional country, they played a lot of western swing – not just Bob Wills songs, but other artists who played western swing or swing influenced music. At home, my parents listened to big band swing and to pop singers like Frank Sinatra and Rosemary Clooney.”
Carolyn began playing guitar and singing in her teens, and before too long, started playing in public. “My very first job was when my friend Laurie and I started working at a place called “Old Abilene Town”, a tourist attraction out by the interstate. They showed silent movies in the restaurant, and Laurie and I would play in the intermission between the movies.”
Carolyn soon began working with area bands, and a few years later took her own band on the road, playing in nightclubs, dance halls and hotel lounges. “It seemed like every hotel in the country had a band in their lounge; we would play each place for two or three weeks, getting to know the town and the people, then move on to the next town for a two or three weeks. It was a nice way to live for a few years, sightseeing during day and playing every night”.
After relocating to Nashville, Carolyn worked as a freelance singer and guitarist, gradually transitioning from playing in bars to performing at private parties and corporate events – a move that had both advantages and a few downsides. The move allowed Carolyn to sing regularly – and sing a wide variety of music, from traditional country to R&B, but it also meant that there was a certain loss of visibility; ‘out of sight, out of mind’ is certainly true in the music business.
Then, one Monday night in 1999, Carolyn went to hear some friends who were playing with a group called the Time Jumpers. They asked Carolyn to sit in with the band and sing a couple of songs. Within a couple of months, she was invited to become a member of the group. 11 years later, after having been a part of three CD’s, a DVD that has aired on hundreds of Public Television Stations and sharing two Grammy nominations with the other members of the band, Carolyn left the Time Jumpers to perform full time with her own group, Carolyn Martin’s Swing Band.
Carolyn’s performances are not limited to western swing; for the last few years, she’s been singing in a show called “Country Royalty”, a tribute to the music of Hank Williams and Patsy Cline. She also has gained a reputation as an interpreter of pop/jazz standards of the 1930s and 40s, singing with her jazz quartet.

Episode 132Give Me A Break Radio Hour ~ With Host Bobby Pizazz ~ Remembering John Mitchum ~ By Cindy Mitchum Azbill

Since the passing of John Mitchum in 2001, his family has maintained efforts to have John’s contribution to films, television, and American culture be recognized by collecting recordings of his many friends and admirers reciting their favorite Mitchum poem set to music, an idea suggested by Ernest Borgnine and AC Lyles. This has been a long undertaking, as many of these people are busy with their own careers in film and television.We started this project late Spring/early Summer of 2001. Dad had suffered a major stroke after learning of the sudden death of his only son, my brother, Jack.While my half sister Victoria worked with Dad daily on physical rehabilitation and nutrition, giving him back his strength and coordination, I worked toward giving him a purpose to fight. Hence, this book.When I told Dad he needed a forward for the book and asked who he wanted to write it, he firmly said “you.” Believe me, that took me by total surprise. I was expecting one of his many well-known friends to be named. When I questioned him on his decision he simply said “No one knows me like you.”When he read what I had written, he looked up with tears in his eyes and said “thank you.”How many times growing up did my brother and I hear “You are so lucky to have John Mitchum for a father!” We would look at each other and shrug our shoulders. Of course we knew Dad was an actor, writer, poet and singer, but it was no big deal. That’s just who he was. Dad never had an ego attached to anything he did, so we took it all as a matter of course.Dad had friends from all walks of life. He taught us by example not to be judgmental, bigoted or hateful. We never knew upon opening the front door who or what would be on the other side.

It might be John Wayne to discuss “America, Why I Love Her,” or an unknown but equally important stuntman. It could have been Bill Grote—a geologist for The Department of Water and Power, or Bob Finney who was an engineer at NASA. Or it might have been some hungry kid Dad picked up hitch-hiking. Thirty years later that same hungry kid — Diane Stroebel and her husband Guy were right by my side when Dad passed away. Dad and his friends set the bar of professionalism for all of us. Even to his last performance at the Golden Boot Ceremony if Dad was asked to recite one of his poems or songs he simply cleared his throat, looked skyward to ground himself and he was THERE. Dad was equal in Uncle Robert’s renowned ability to remember lines and stories. In all my life, I never saw Dad “warm up” for anything. His final spoken words to me in ICU was the poem “America, Why I Love Her” in its entirety.When his mother was turning 90 and the family was having a huge celebration for her, I came up with a great idea. We were living in Las Vegas at the time. I called Dad in Los Angeles and told him to write a poem for Nana. Within 10 minutes he called back with “That’s My Mother,” which my husband put to music. The two of them performed it together for Nana at the party after just one run through.

Dad did just about the same thing this past winter when Dale Evans passed away. I would say her poem was written within 15 minutes.When I was a child Dad was always busy. He appeared in over 800 TV shows, 60 movies, recorded an album with Dan Blocker, as well as having John Wayne, Ken Curtis, Lorne Greene, and Forrest Tucker record his poetry and songs. He was nominated for a Grammy for John Wayne’s recording of “America, Why I Love Her.”

If that were not enough, Dad was always the first to volunteer for a benefit or charity event. He masterminded several of his own for friends in need. He campaigned across the country with Jim Drury, Jon Locke, and The Sons of The Pioneers for Barry Goldwater in the 1960’s. All of this while keeping our house open to all our friends and strays.

In honesty it wasn’t until I hit my 40’s and really looked back at my childhood before I began to appreciate my father; the life he has given me, the “jewels” in the vast array of beautiful people he has introduced me to, the love of knowledge, beauty, humor and friendship.

Now I look at his body of work and I am in awe. Not only is it enormous, but it is beautiful. When I gathered all the poems and songs together for this book Dad commented “I’ve been rather prolific!” Still no ego there.Now in giving you this collection of a lifetime of work I can say “Yes, I am lucky to have had John Mitchum for a father.” I miss you Daddy.Cindy Mitchum Azbill
