In a display that largely plays out like an iTunes visualization, trumpeter Adam Meckler and his quintet roll out the new video for "One Creaking Birch Tree" off Meckler's new album, Wander. It's an album of post-bop swirliness that's certainly off this era, coasting along on Midwestern charm. It's a steady ride with mostly lengthy compositions that involve a lot of hunkering down. Check out the video for "One Creaking Birch Tree" after the jump.
Nomade Orquestra is a Sao Paolo-based collective making music that pulls from jazz, funk, and hip-hop to build a cinematic feel. The term 'cinematic' is tossed around for a lot of music, but just go ahead and listen to "Bedum" and don't picture a chase scene in a spy movie. The musician credits aren't listed on the band's bandcamp page, but expect to hear groove-heavy drums and basslines coupled with a solid horn frontline, Wurlitzers, Rhodes pianos, and organs, guitar, and the odd sample or scratching from a DJ. Judging from the photo on the band's website, there seem to be ten people involved here.
And we're out the back end of the spring membership drive at KRTU. You can still head over to http://join.KRTU.org/ and become a member of the station. It would be mighty cool of you and you'd be a part of this radio show happening.
