The Line-Up for 6-18-2010

I actually didn't write this in advance so this is going to be a bit of a challenge to do. I'm typing this in real time from my BlackBerry. Enjoy the show, y'all.

Jason Moran - Gangsterism Over 10 Years

This track is new and actually streaming over at NPR right now. Moran's Ten albums is releasing next week to positive reviews. I'm just sayin'.

Quincy Jones & Bill Cosby - Hicky-Burr
What better choice for Father's Day than America's dad? This is really the best I got.

Gretchen Parlato - Doralice
I dare you to say this song didn't pull you out of a funk. You could have been feeling great and Parlato made you feel even better.

Chaka Khan & Freddie Hubbard - Them There Eyes
I'll take any excuse I can to play some Chaka Khan. This one: The computer put it there.

Vijay Iyer - Big Brother
I will whistle songs from Vijay Iyer's Historicity randomly at work. It's an affliction I've become fond of having.

Herbie Hancock - All Apologies
Hancock's The New Standard album always holds a special place in my heart.

Miles Davis - Guinnevere
Friends of mine on Twitter have been talking about Crosby, Stills, and Nash all week so I figured I'd further indulge right here.

Tord Gustavson Trio - Where We Were
I don't have a real reason why this is here other than it fit.
