The Line-Up for 1-15-2009

Hey, jazz lovers. I'm back after missing a week due to station maintenance. Did you miss me?
This week's show is a sort of showcase for last week's Winter Jazz Fest in New York. You may have heard a bunch about it from folks like Nate Chinen, Ben Ratliff, Alex Rodriguez and others. Peter Hum also put together a few videos from the event in case you want that whole visual aspect. I wish I could have been there for a jazz festival with that kind of energy but clearly, that's not the case. So, I figure I'll bring that kind of energy to The Line-Up this week.

Rudresh Mahanthappa & the Indo-Pak Coalition - Apti
Vijay Iyer - Mystic Brew
Darcy James Argue's Secret Society - Phobos
Dr. Lonnie Smith - Pilgrimage
Lionel Loueke - Seven Teens
Ben Allison & Man Size Safe - Man Size Safe
Jason Moran - Gangsterism on Stages
Gretchen Parlato - In a Dream

Oh, and one more thing. If you didn't know by now, I've started writing for the upstart jazz website, Nextbop. As my first piece will dictate, I have a lot of high hopes for it and I'm quite honored to write for them. If you found your way here through my show on KRTU, head over there and check out the site. If you came here from Nextbop, check out KRTU and hear the great jazz (and late night indie rock) that San Antonio has to offer. I seriously think I work at the best radio station ever.
