I didn’t plan my June 16 show to coincide with Father’s Day — it was a coincidence, and, to be honest, a somewhat uncomfortable and cruelly ironic one. I’d been working for weeks on a jazz tribute to a great songwriter, Brian Wilson, founder and creative font of the Beach Boys, who definitely was not lucky in the daddy department. I wanted it to air as close as possible to Brian’s 71st birthday on Thursday, June 20. When my wife reminded me of that June 16 was Father’s Day, I thought, “Uh-oh.”
Just wanted to let everyone know that One World under my hosting turns 2 today so I threw together a commemorative two-part mix to showcase a lot of favorites and what not. It's been a very crazy fun time and I'm glad to be able to share music from around this planet we call home every Wednesday night. As for the mix itself, I left out a lot of favorites and will upload the second part of the mix very soon. Mad love and thanks to everyone who's locked in over these past two years far and wide! (Tracklist posted after the jump!)
Really excited about 3 large ensemble recordings (Joel Harrison 19, Kim Richmond, Dave Ricard) among the New being added to the Jazz 88 Music Library starting next Tuesday, June 18, 2013. You can get the jump on everyone by checking out their debut on on The New Jazz Thing @Jazz88, Monday 6-8PM PT, June 17, 2013. The full list is after the split, but here's a funky little taste from San Diego's own Pocket and their new disc "Resonance"...
