The Line-Up for 6-29-2012

You know those sort of weird disjointed songs that you sort of like but have to find the right mood to play? That's what this week's show is all about. Gretchen Parlato - Juju I really wanted to start this show off with her version of Wayne Shorter's "E.S.P." but I couldn't find her previous album, In a Dream, on the shelves so I replaced one Parlato covering Shorter track with another. The Roots - Hall & Oates Vijay Iyer Trio - Little Pocket Size Demons Go dumb. Go dumb. Go dumb. Henry Threadgill's Zooid - Tomorrow Sunny I need to give this album a couple more listens to speak more on it but I've been cottoning to Threadgill lately. You should, too. Flying Lotus - A Cosmic Dream The Bad Plus - Physical Cities I heard J.D. play this on the air last week and knew it wouldn't be long for me to find an excuse to play it myself. Billy Hart - Ohnedaruth I need to give this album more of my attention but it deserves all the praises it has received so far. Ravi Coltrane - Spirit Fiction I think this album was the catalyst for this whole show's theme. I wasn't expecting this kind of album from him for his Blue Note debut. It was a bit of a surprise. THEESatisfaction - Juiced Avi Granite's Verse - Mortetia I've been keeping Snow Umbrellas in rotation for a bit. Zacc Harris Group - After The Fall I've also recently added The Garden to my rotation. Jonti - Flesh of the Morning Mike Reed's People, Places & Things - Sharon I've had Clean on the Corner for a little while now and wasn't quite sure what to do with it. It wasn't until I was putting this show together that I figured out it'd be a good fit for this show. I'm glad I could make some time for it.
