The Line-Up for 8-24-2012
I have a lot of new goodies for this week's show. It's exciting. The playlist for this week feels like Christmas. I never even saw such a bounty of riches coming. There's mad crazy new stuff. I can go on and on about it but I'll just play music now. Avi Granite's Verse - Y Not Granite once again popped up in my commute this week. Snow Umbrellas isn't as new as everything else on this weeks' show, but it's still as good as everything else this week. Karriem Riggins - Esperanza Linda Oh - Ultimate Persona I wanted a really pumping beat early in the show to kick things off. Linda Oh was the perfect call. Steve Lehman Trio - Fumba Rebel Once again, I'm dipping into Lehman's Dialect Flourescent. It's quite a good album. Karriem Riggins - Up ERIMAJ - Black Super Hero Theme Song I've been waiting forever to play something new from Conflict of a Man on The Line-Up, and by "forever" I mean since Monday when I first started listening to it compulsively. Dafnis Prieto Proverb Trio - The Magic Dansonete Finally, after profiling him, I've gotten my hands on Dafnis Prieto Proverb Trio. I'll be revisiting this often. Karriem Riggins - daooooh!! Trio Bruxo - Figiu Com A Novela I've had pianist David Ryshpan's blog in my Google Reader for some time now but I had yet to listen to any of his music until he emailed me recently. I realize I've been waiting a little to long for that and also that you should really hear Trio Bruxo's new EP. Marcus Miller - Setembro (Brazilian Wedding Song) feat. Gretchen Parlato & Rubén Blades Ever since Quincy Jones' Back on the Block, "Setembro" has held a warm space in my heart. Miller, Parlato, & Blades take this song in an interesting direction. It's pretty cool. Lionel Loueke - Tribal Dance I was excited to get this in the mail today. I had no idea this was coming my way. I had to include a track on the show immediately. Karriem Riggins - Bring That Beat Back (Next Time) Sonnymoon - Kali I was seriously challenged about what song should close the show, but then I realized how happy I always am to play Sonnymoon.
