The Line-Up for 4-20-2012

Rarely does 4/20 fall on a Friday so I have been pretty excited to put this show together for a few weeks now. Hopefully my song choices lived up to this show's potential.

Todd Clouser - Little Boxes
I hope I wasn't trying to be too clever in this song choice. Okay, maybe I was trying to be too clever with this selection.
Rel - On My Way
The Bad Plus feat. Wendy Lewis - Comfortably Numb 
I had this song here as a marker until I could come up with what I figured would be a better idea. Ultimately, I realized this song was kismet after all.
Medeski Scofield Martin and Wood - Legalize It
It's a little overt, but isn't 4/20 all about overtness? 
Daedelus - Madlib Bonus Beats
Portico Quartet - Ruins
Yep, this album is still in rotation. Heh, I said rotation. 
By the time BBNG2 gets to about this track, it really gets up and running.
Mister Barrington - Landing
I can't stop playing this song. I really can't.
Mo Kolours - Temi
Sound Directions - On the Hill
It can't be a 4/20 Line-Up without Madlib, who actually shows up twice in this show. It's that serious.
Donald Byrd - Stepping into Tomorrow
I figured I would either play Madlib's remix of this or the original. The library had the original. That freed me up to play another Madlib track.
Frank Zappa - Little Umbrellas
I didn't know Zappa was anti-drugs. I don't know enough about him. I still feel this was perfect song placement, though.
Stevie Wonder - Contusion
I was sort of stuck with what to play at this point, combing the library until the perfect selection came up... and then Classic Stevie emerged like a ray of light.
The Pharcyde - Runnin' Instrumental (Produced by J Dilla)
Nujabes - Peaceland
My favorite Nujabes song. I will always come back to this track. It's the perfect show closer, I swear.
