The Line-Up for 8-12-2011

Steadily figuring it out but the show remains quite good. Quite good indeed.

Stefon Harris, Dávid Sanchez, and Christian Scott - Brown Belle Blues
Funnily enough, the computer picked this track, I just chose to move it to the 1 spot.
Gretchen Parlato - Still feat. Alan Hampton
1) I haven't played Gretchen Parlato in a little while. 2) Isn't just just a feel good song?
Herbie Hancock - Edith and the Kingpin feat. Tina Turner
I really haven't played anything from River: The Joni Letters in a while.
Rachelle Ferrell - Autumn Leaves
Now that I think about it, I'm not quite sure if this fits in with the vibe of the show, but I'm a sucker for Rachelle Ferrell. Even when she's singing straight ahead, she's always out there. I must see her at the Carver in November
Lionel Loueke - Karibu
Folks everywhere keep talking about Lionel Loueke. He's really been an "it" guitarist for the jazz insiders.
The Stanley Clarke Band - Labyrinth (feat. Hiromi)
I still have this album on solid rotation on my iPod. It stays going strong for going on a year now.
BADBADNOTGOOD (The Odd Trio) - Fall in Love
It's weird to know that three guys pretty much goofing around in Ottawa can garner this much attention around the world.
Thundercat - Daylight
One big reason why I can't wait for The Golden Age of the Apocalypse to release is so I can stop playing the same two or three songs over and over again.
Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey - Grandfather's Gun
Nextbop just got the go ahead to stream JFJO's Race Riot Suite for the week of the 23rd leading up to its August 30th release. Get psyched. I've really been enjoying this album since I got it.
ERiMAJ - Conflict of a Man
Did you see the music video?
Russell Gun - I Wish
I had a little time left and thought this would be nice to wrap up. Although, most of it got cut for the sake of time.

Mic Breaks
Madlib - Distant Land
Radiohead - Bloom
The Stuyvesants - Roosevelt Projects Jam Session
Flying Lotus - Golden Diva
