Ray Manzarek and Roy Rogers: Show Preview

Los Angeles and San Francisco are tied as America's capitals of sin and triumph — at least for Ray Manzarek and Roy Rogers, who fashioned a "soundtrack" for both cities with their debut collaboration Translucent Blues. Manzarek (L.A.) is best known as the Doors' organist and producer of the first five X albums; Rogers (S.F.) is a blues guitar ace who worked closely with John Lee Hooker during the icon's later years. With alternating vocals, Rogers' searing guitar and the jazz-inspired cool of Manzarek's keyboards compliment and contrast each other marvelously as they scrutinize the Golden State's dark underbelly.
