The Line-Up for 6-11-2010

I'm actually trying to do the show live this time. I don't know if you've noticed but the show is typically recorded since I can't find a way home at night by bus.

Stanton Moore - Knocker
The computer picked this one but I found it to be pretty funky so I decided to keep it.
Medeski, Martin & Wood - Uninvisible
Yet another one of those, "When's the last time I played ____" moments. Noticing a theme here?
Eliane Elias - Oye Como Va
The computer picked this and I really wasn't feeling playing a lot of vocal tracks this evening (there are three tonight), but it's "Oye Como Va." Try listening to anyone perform "Oye Como Va" and not get a little chipper.
Lizz Wright - A Taste of Honey
Once again, I'm playing Lizz Wright to prep the Alamo City for her performance at the Carver tomorrow.
The Roots - Teen Town
Owen Biddle does too good of a job on this song. Seriously. It makes be sad it's less than a minute long. Get the LNJF Sandwiches mixtape if you don't already have it. There's too much pure gold in it that The Roots just gave away.
The Roots feat. George Benson - Breezin'
Also from the LNJF Sandwiches mixtape is this choice selection and includes George Benson himself having too much fun. Fun like that needs radio play.
Marc Cary - Just In Time
I've been waiting for a while for the station to get some Marc Cary to play on the air. Now they have some and here it is.
Jaco Pastorius & Herbie Hancock - Kuru/Speak Like a Child
After hearing someone else play some Pastorius, I just had to go to the genuine article.
Seu Jorge & Almaz - Everybody Loves the Sunshine
This begins my ending the show with a block of stuff from Stones Throw. I've been playing this song pretty consistently lately so I knew I wanted to play it on The Line-Up at some point.
Sound Directions - Dice Game / Wanda Vidal
If there's a rule anyone could apply to The Line-Up, it's that you just can't go too long on this show without playing Brad Mehldau or Madlib. Tonight's a Madlib night.
Madlib - Montara
I reiterate: tonight is a Madlib night.
Robert Glasper - For You
I slipped this in at the last minute because I clicked a wrong button earlier. Still, that's the kind of stuff that happens when you go live.
