Jazz Cartier & Stevie Van Zandt | The Strombo Show

February 8, 2016 at 8:17 pm  •  Posted in RADIO by

The Strombo Show ran the gamut this Sunday night, keeping the spirit of radio alive by delivering the best records in the best order. It’s a show for music lovers by music lovers, ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new.

This week, George Stroumboulopoulos welcomed a very special, exclusive performance with Jazz Cartier. We also featured an intimate conversation with Stevie Van Zandt, recorded backstage at Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s River tour in Toronto.

Cartier has branded himself as Toronto’s prince of hip-hop. His work ethic and theatrical production have earned him critical praise since his Polaris-nominated debut, Marauding in Paradise. After the surprise release of Hotel Paranoia this past week, we celebrated in the House of Strombo with friends that included Canadian hip-hop royalty like Maestro Fresh Wes. Cartier joined George for a conversation, performed several cuts off his sophomore album and debuted a new track, “Cut the Cheque.”

Van Zandt is the legendary E Street Band renaissance man. He’s known for his performances in The Sopranos and Lilyhammer, and for his syndicated radio program that celebrates dusty distortion,Little Steven’s Underground Garage. In the midst of a sold-out tour, Little Steven sat down with George to celebrate The River, talk about the Rock and Roll Forever Foundation and reveal what’s ahead.
