Liner notes from the album, When Lions Roar read: "Classrooms & clubs, symphony & social halls, workshops & record shops... all are part of the Bosman's dossier of elegance... in pursuit of their aim: 'educate to elevate.'" - Dr. Eugene Redmond
This is one of the liveliest conversations featured on Collateral Damage in some time. You'll get a sneak peak into the lives of these musical geniuses and into several of the tracks on their latest album, which, by the way, you've got to pick up.
Here's a look at how the conversation went:
Chapter 1. "We had to work at it hard." Before becoming one of the most accomplished jazz duos in St Louis, Dwight and Dwayne were raised in a musical household (0:00-10:15)
- Track 3 - "Pootie"
Chapter 2. How do you raise talented children? "Give them the opportunity to fall in love with music." (10:15-21:30)
- Track 8 - "My Daddy Was a Horn Player"
Chapter 3. A talented family. The Bosman Twins' mother worked for two governors and a president. Their sister performs poetry on one of their tracks - and she holds her own. (21:30-26:00)
Chapter 4. What's it like for twins to record an album? "In the studio, time is money," explains Dwayne as Dwight makes faces behind his younger twin brother. (26:00-33:15)
- Track 13 - "Tuned In"
Chapter 5. Progressive activism begets progressive music. The inspiration behind the music. (33:15-39:00)
- Track 9 - "When Lions Roar"
Chapter 6. Grammys bound! (technically). A walk through a few of the tunes on the album. (39:00-47:35)
- Track 6 - "Seclusion"
- Track 12 - "DB Blues"
- Track 1 - "Manifestation"
Hank and the guests occasionally mention an "Andy" through the course of the conversation, that would be KDHX volunteer engineer/producer, Andy Heaslet.
You can also catch guest host Hank Thompson on the air Sunday nights at 6pm on 88.7 WSIE.
*Get well soon, DJ Wilson!*
