This week, Documentary Now!‘s two-part finale is taking you back to a softer, gentler time— an era when Blue Jean Committee’s “Catalina Breeze” played on the radio on an endless loop.
Propelled by their groovy tunes, memorable talk-singing vocal style, and impressive falsetto, BJC, as they’re called by their loyal fans, were one of the best known Loggins & Messina-inspired bands from the late ’70s Northampton, Massachusetts music scene. The band eventually hit it big with chilled out grooves like “Massachusetts Afternoon” (which you might have heard on SNL), “Gentle and Soft,” “Mama You’re a Dancer,” “Walking Shoes,” and, of course, “Catalina Breeze” (which you can order on vinyl right now).
This week’s guest stars include music legends like Irving Azoff, HAIM, Daryl Hall, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, and more.
Head over to Documentary Now!‘s music section to spend your day groovin’ to the gentle tunes from Blue Jean Committee and tune in on Thursday at 10P to go behind the music. And in case your day needs some mellow-ing, check out Blue Jean Committee’s recent appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers below.
