May 30, 2016

As I suspected, this ended up being an "all-new" show this week.  As sometimes happens, there was loads of new material that I just wanted to get out there.  There was a nice mix of styles, basically see-sawing from fairly out there material (e.g. Nick Fraser Quartet, Jackson and Adasiewicz) and more commercial sounds (e.g. Logan Richardson, Esperanza Spalding).  I'm not sure at this point what next week's program (June 6) will bring but it'll be good, as always :-)

There was a nice of mix of styles and of old and new this week.  I was a bit of a butterfingers on the board and I sneezed on air a couple of times (fighting a losing battle with a cold) but the music was good.  I was able to play a couple of live Soft Machine tracks, which is always a good thing IMHO.

Next week's program might end up being an all-new show (I've got loads of newly-released material) but we'll see.

Back behind the boards after missing the last two shows (again, many thanks to Linda for filling in on both programs!).   So much new jazz has crossed my path over the last few weeks that I had to make this an "all new" program (next week's show may end up being the same).  I think I featured a nice mix of things, with a bit of a lean to vibes and related percussion sounds.  I played 12 tracks in one hour; probably not a record for BTT but definitely up there in terms of how many jazz recordings can be played in 60 minutes (sometimes it's only a handful).
