Singer-songwriter Dan Hicks is an American original: Since the early '60s, he's blended swing, jazz, folk and country music to create a sound he calls "folk jazz." Click the link above to hear Hicks and his band The Hot Licks perform live in concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.

At 66, Hicks reconvened The Hot Licks to record the new album Tangled Tales, which features the swirling mix of genres that's become the frontman's trademark — and also includes guest appearances by the likes of David Grisman and Roy Rogers. The resulting concoction is knee-bobbingly rhythmic assortment of originals and covers.
