The Line-Up for 5-21-2010

Yet another show put together for you to enjoy. This one was mostly a "Retro combs through the KRTU library" episodem I hope you enjoy.

Joe Lovano & Hank Jones - Six and Four
With Hank Jones' passing this past week, I knew I wanted to play something of this tonight. Nextbop posted an interview he did with us and mentioned working with Joe Lovano on a couple of projects so I knew just what to look for.
J Dilla - Oblighetto
Imagine my surprise to look through the categories and see a J Dilla track. Seeing his name meant mandatory airplay.
Brad Mehldau - Dropjes
Recently, JD asked me to record a quick promo and asked me if I had any song in mind to play in the background. While I was thinking, JJ chimed in and said, "Something from Brad Mehldau!" Theses people know me too well.
Weather Report - Teen Town
I've been seriously craving some Weather Report lately.
Dafnis Prieto - Taking the Soul for a Walk
The computer picked this. I don't mind.
Nat King Cole/Cut Chemist - Day In Day Out
I picked this because it's short and because the last time I played it, it was quite awesome.
Fly Trio - Elena Berenjena
Computer picked it but how can I say no to Larry Grenadier and Jeff Ballard?
Ronnie Foster - Mystic Brew
This has been stuck in my head for a little bit. It's sampled and remixed too often for the original not to get some play every now and then.
Roy Hargrove/RH Factor - Rich Man's Welfare
I knew I wanted to play some Roy Hargrove. This fit.
Taylor Eigsti - Get Your Hopes Up
Computer picked it.
Jason Lindner - Worrisome
I'm playing some more Jason Lindner because Now Vs Now is AWESOME!
