The Line-Up for 1-20-2012

I didn't have many ideas for this show but going with the flow of things sort of worked out.

Enoch Smith Jr. - A Misfit's Theme
I'm making up for lost time with playing Misfits.
dela - Get Busy
Johnathan Blake - The Eleventh Hour
We're streaming this album and Ben Wendel's Frame at Nextbop the week before their February 21st releases on the Sunnyside label. Just keeping you on your toes.
Thundercat - Is It Love?
Sometimes the standout tracks on an album jump around. This track came up the other day and reminded me a lot of Stanley Clarke, which I guess is probably the point.
RJD2 - Ghostwriter
Enoch Smith Jr. - She Move Me
Like I said, I'm making up for lost time. There's a groundswell that's building for Smith and I don't want to miss it.
Stefon Harris / Dávid Sanchez / Christian Scott - City Sunrise
The computer picked this one, actually. Fortunately, this is my favorite track off Ninety Miles, so I kept it.
Jack DeJohnette -  Indigo Dreamscapes feat. Jason Moran
The funny thing about jazz is that there are so many musicians in the field who you can point to and say they still "got it". DeJohnette proves that all over the place with Sound Travels.
The Stuyvesants - Panty Dropper
Grand Pianoramax - Infidel
I like to revisit GP from time to time.
Jazzanova - Song of Will
This was a computer selection but I've been asking myself over the past few weeks why I don't know enough about this group. The computer reads my mind, man!
Apple Juice Kid - Bitches
Chico Hamilton - El Toro (Mark de Clive-Lowe Remix)
Computer selection but I'm sticking with it.
