The Line-Up for 8-31-2012
There's still a bounty of music but this week felt more like putting things in order than last week. Last week was unfiltered newness. This week feels more constrained. I think it works out. Nicky Shrire - Don't Think Twice, It's Alright I had been sitting on this album for a little while, waiting for the right moment to give it a proper chance. This track was one of those pleasant surprises that came up when putting my music player on shuffle, always a good sign for me. James Pants - Track 27 Orrin Evans - Clean House I felt it was time to revisit the new Orrin Evans album. Jeff Coffin & the Mutet - 8-Bit Goggles I got this album recently but it, too, had to come up at random at during my commute as well. Karriem Riggins - Tom Toms Ravi Coltrane - Spirit Fiction Honestly, I needed to fill in about two minutes, but realized this really was a perfect selection for this show. Trio Bruxo - Solidão Gasolina Here's yet another selection from the Trio Bruxo EP because it's pretty good. Marquis Hill - The Wrath of Lark And here's another selection from Sounds of the City because I haven't played anything from it in a couple weeks. THEESatisfaction - Juiced ERIMAJ - This Night, This Song This song is hauntingly good. I'd even venture to say it's better than Tony Williams' version because it takes it even further and makes it oh so soulful. Lionel Loueke - Bayyinah Robert Glasper Experiment's "Festival" : Lionel Loueke's "Bayyinah" :: Mos Def's "Casa Bey" : Robert Glasper Experiment's "Black Radio" feat. Yasiin Bey. I'll explain more if need be. The Gaslamp Killer - Seven Years of Bad Luck for Fun (feat. Dimlite) Marco Benevento - Fireworks I've really been looking forward to the release of TigerFace and the wait has been well worth it. You're really going to want to cop this album.
