Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 Library Blog - New This WeekAuthor: Vince Outlaw , Social Media Marketing ManagerPosted on: June 9, 2014
While the run of female vocalists continues this week in the Adds To The Jazz 88 Music Library, we've also got the latest release from drummer extraordinaire Harvey Mason ("Chameleon"), a new Live release from pianist (and for TNJT guest) Hiromi ("Alive"), and new music from recently un-clubbed club owner, recording magnate, and saxophonist who I'd like to have on TNJT one day, Cory Weeds ("As Of Now"). 

You can hear those and more debut on The New Jazz Thing with Vince Outlaw, Monday, June 9, 2014, 6-8 PM PT! The full list, with annotations, along with your chance to comment on what you see...and maybe what you don't...below the fold.

A funny thing happened on the way to Free Time. It started two hours early with Percussive Profiles!
  • Bernard "Pretty" Purdie to Elvin Jones "The Drum Thing." Then Peter Erskine for sixty minutes. E Ticket Ride right there. Some heavier lifting helps one appreciate a lighter load. I'm talking about duration.
  • Larger groups in this evening's Creative Music section. 8 Bold Souls, Big Trouble, David Murray, and Keefe Jackson. Small groups allow for the space and structure but larger groups seem to swell and teeter and then all the directions that music starts flying in like a blizzard or levitation.
  • The Dropper might land on your toe if you aren't ready so here's Uninvisible by Medeski Martin & Wood.
Thanks for listening

The Index of Possibilities is deployed transparently throughout any programming span, regardless of projection intent. It illuminates the phrase "more of a guideline than a rule" and The Index can also take the heat in a pinch, as in "that escalated quickly." 
  • Mantra by Alice Coltrane to begin. Joe Henderson and Pharoah Sanders pretty much on edge from beginning to end. Not much more, not much less. Mantra.
  • Song for Charles by the Art Ensemble of Chicago to start Free Time. No one has ever knitted the sounds created into such a solid aural fabric of fascination. Maybe it's just me. (paris, 1969)
  • Make your own Index of Possibilities. Wrap your brain around it, see what it can do for you. Everybody's different!

Thanks for listening.

    Tonight's program shamelessly pandering to the broadest demographic of Jazzheads if they are free wheeling modernists unconcerned by implications of structure and/or the suggestion of reconstructed textures vis-a-vis oblique voicings. It's a three day weekend where we should be more thankful than Thanksgiving. Game On!
    • I felt like the first hour should have been enjoyable if one is anywhere near the above rhetorical description.
    • Sun Ra was born 100 years ago, hence the spotlight tonight. I just call it Sun Ra Day. It could be any day of the year. It will always be special. Besides, I don't want to get into it about the Saturn thing.
    • So many angles to Jazz. Swangin'!
    Thanks for listening.
