The Line-Up for 7-6-2012
It's no secret that I love the website Destination: OUT. It's a great resource for jazz that's, for lack of a better word, out there. This week, D:O celebrates six years of existence and to celebrate, they put together a Beginner's Guide to Free Jazz. This gesture was just too brilliant to pass up so some of the selections they put together made up the bulk of this week's show. Head over there to see all I couldn't fit into this one hour. In the meantime... Somi - Kuzunguka This song popped up on my commute before I got to the station. Also, I'm almost always ready to play some Somi. A.M. Architect - Circus Maria Neckam - Obsessed I planned to play this song last week but ran out of time. Le Boeuf Brothers - Two Worlds I've also been wanting to play some Le Boeuf Brothers on the show lately, too. Austin Peralta - Epilogue: Renaissance Bubbles Miles Davis - Rated X I knew when I wanted to put this show together that I would have a hard time placing this track in the hour. I figure I'd throw this in the middle and then ease things out for the rest of the hour. Art Ensemble of Chicago - Theme De Yoyo You can never go wrong when things stay pretty funky like this. Madlib - On the Move Sun Ra - Angels and Demons at Play This is a short, easy piece that starts the set off pretty well. Alice Coltrane - Journey in Satchidananda I've played this track on the show before. I really need to learn more about Alice Coltrane. Don Cherry - Brown Rice This is a pretty cool song. I need to know more about Don Cherry, too. Man, D:O really did put together a great bunch of songs! Is talking so deeply in the middle of the track too intrusive? I figured I'd try something new. Herbie Hancock - Rain Dance That Don Cherry to this Herbie Hancock is just so damn fluid, isn't it?
