The Line-Up and Whatever Follows It for 6-25-2010

I actually did three hours of programming tonight since Galen is no longer doing The Distance after The Line-Up. I'm sad to know he's gone and hope he does well but I figured someone should do something with the time slot, at least for tonight. I'll tell you one thing. It's harder to work with so many shorter songs.

This is also the "So I didn't make it to Montreal" show. I'm a little down about it but I never got to program three hours of show before so I guess this is an alright consolation prize. Let me know if I did alright, alright?

Vijay Iyer - Big Brother
I really do like this song, plus Iyer is doing a free concert with Nextbop during the day at the Montreal Jazz Fest.
Terence Blanchard & Bilal - Journey
Blanchard is one of those people I don't pay enough attention to but should.
Roy Hargrove Big Band - Roy Allen
This really is my favorite track off of this album. It's just too smooth, especially for a big band.
Herbie Hancock - Chameleon
I've wanted to play this on the air for some time but it's really hard to just block out fifteen minutes of show for one song. It still was a challenge this week to do so.
Robert Glasper - 59 South
Glasper has been on my mind lately and this song seemed to fit for tonight.
Lionel Loueke - Benny's Tune
Loueke is just the talk of the town lately, isn't he?
Gretchen Parlato -  I Can't Help It
This song is here 1) because everyone at the station is finally loving Gretchen Parlato (I'm getting through to these people yet and 2) because I hadn't really done much to commemorate the one year anniversary of Michael Jackson's death. This song did him justice.
Christian Scott - The Eraser
What better way to transition to Nocturnal Transmissions than with a jazz cover of a Thom Yorke tune.

My Noc Trans Set
There's too much going on here for me to explain to you why I picked every song for the succeeding two hours so just trust me when I said that I picked the vast majority of these songs and that telling the computer to pick stuff within the same category is your best friend when your mind is running a blank.
