The Line-Up for 30 November 2012

I had not a single clue what to play this week. I've spent so much time preparing for year-end lists that I had to cobble together a show for this week. Next week, I'll likely play cuts from my personal favorite albums of 2012 and the following week will feature our staff lists. But for this week, here's just some all around good music. Pat Metheny Unity Band - Roofdogs Since I've been in year in review mode, I felt like it was time to revisit Pat Metheny and his current crew. BADBADNOTGOOD - Salmonella Rez Abbasi - Divided Attention Some months ago, maybe way back in March or so, Kory told me that Vijay Iyer was coming to San Antonio as part of this show with Rez Abbasi which is now coming up in two weeks. Just talking about this made us ridiculously excited. In a couple of weeks, San Antonio will figure out why. Graham Dechter - Road Song Upon putting this week's show together, Kory suggested I play something from the new Graham Dechter album, so I did. Teeb

The Line-Up for 11-16-2012

It's sort of difficult to say when you're in the swing of things, even though this show wasn't put together while fully in the swing of things, but yes, this show felt like it was in the swing of things. Maria Neckam - I Miss You We just posted the video for this song on Nextbop. Synergy! Hiatus Kaiyote - Sphynx Gate Josh Moshier & Mike Lebrun - Hometown Marvel Moshier and Lebrun have been putting out some pretty great music over the years. I'm pretty glad they're finally putting out their Local Colorists EP. Kurt Rosenwinkel - A Shifting Design If you haben't read Jon Wertheim's review of Star of Jupiter yet, you really should. Thelonious - Third Eye Matthew Halsall - Fletcher Moss Park Once again, you really need to cop the latest Label Love compilation . Timo Lassy - Shifting Winds Chris Galvan, host of Nu Standards (Saturdays 7-9pm CST on Jazz 91.7), recommended Timo Lassy to me some time ago during a station event. Teebs - Bleep Madlib

The Line-Up for 11-9-2012

Part of me feels like I'm procrastinating about reviewing all this year's releases. Part of me is still recovering from last week. I'm not saying these shows are lacking, I'm just saying I have a lot on my mind. Dave Douglas Quintet - Whither Must I Wander? I still need to get around to listening to Be Still , but I do know that with all the good press I've read, it's a high priority. Space Ghost - 3 Weeks Jesse Fischer & Soul Cycle - Midnight Dancer I really have been enjoying Retro Future lately. ERIMAJ - Black Super Hero Theme Song It's astounding how often this song comes to mind on any random day. This may just be my actual theme song lately. Karriem Riggins - Tom Toms Steve Lehman Trio - Pure Imagination I wanted to make an angular set lately so it seems whenever I do, I make a Lehman/Threadgill sandwich. Henry Threadgill's Zooid - Tomorrow Sunny I'm often trying to find just to right time to play some Henrth Threadgill's Zoo
