JFS #118 The Hawk Wolinski Interview….


Urban centers in this country used to swell with regional music. Go from Indianapolis>Chicago and Detroit you would get 3 different sounds.

Chicago was a lightning rod for amped up young musicians to come and cut their teeth. For those lucky enough to have grown up there it meant marinating in northern soul and elegant jass. The swirling organs no bass pedal, the psychedelics and the melodic vocal arrangements all fusing together in the shadow of Chess and Delmark Records.

My guest today lives in Nashville but his roots are Chicago through and through. His charisma and loneliness are authentic in his playing or writing. Maybe sitting behind a keyboard or a bass guitar my guest has been a part of American Music History as a writer, arranger and performer. His career includes stints with Rufus and Chaka Kahn, Glenn Frey, Chicago, The Bangor Flying Circus, Minnie Ripperton and Howard Wales.
