The Line-Up for 1-13-2012

I didn't acknowledge this on the show but this episode of the Line-Up falls on Friday the 13th. So... yeah... there's that. I probably didn't say anything because it's not all that important. What is important, though, is new music. Also important is that I can confirm a couple of our acts who will be performing at the KRTU/Nextbop day party at the Red House Pizzeria in Austin, Texas, on March 14th during the South by SouthWest festival (which links up quite nicely to the KRTU/Music for Listeners day party the rest of that week). As if the music itself this show drops on you isn't gold enough, even the info is gold.

Dafnis Prieto Sextet - En Las Ruinas De Su Infancia
I sort of had this song on my mind this week. It's another commute song that got stuck in my head and subsequently hit the airwaves.
Mister Barrington - Helter's Kelter
Ben Wendel - Chorale
We'll be streaming Wendel's Frame at Nextbop on February 21st alongside Johnathan Blake's The Eleventh Hour.
Robert Glasper Experiment - Cherish the Day feat. Lalah Hathaway
For two weeks in a row, I have played Sade covers. This is not a coincidence.
Portico Quartet - Lacker Boo
I've still been playing this groups album compulsively since I got it. It's one of those albums.
Flying Lotus - Golden Diva
Matt Stevens - Stable Mates
Yes, Matt Stevens' group will be playing at our day party during SXSW. Incentive enough to roll through?
ERIMAJ - Conflict of a Man
Jamire Williams' group is playing our day party, too. How about now? How about the fact that it's an all ages free show? How about the fact that this will be one of the few chances to hear jazz at SXSW and it'll still fit in at this kind of festival. You'll roll through now, right?
Kenneth Whalum III - It Was Written feat. Common
I find it sort of weird that not enough people seemed to talk about To Those Who Believe... last year, especially with Robert Glasper sitting in the clutch on keys. Hell, Whalum seems to sit in the clutch wherever he plays himself, quietly bringing the hotness. Be there when the world catches up and takes note.
Robert Glasper Experiment - Black Radio feat. Yasiin Bey
It was a bit of a risk to play this track but I figured why have a specialty show if you can't stand out front at a jazz station. Plus, this track is too cool not to play.
Mister Barrington - Frank's Drebin
I'm playing II pretty often, too. 2012 already has some pretty great releases. I'm already thinking about my lists.
