New week, new Sounds For Sunday playlist. No particular theme. Enjoy dope tracks by Mehliana, Javi Santiago, Kris Bowers, The Bridge Trio, Remi Panossian, Jad Salameh, Omer Klein, Tim Campanella, Aidan Carroll and Tomoko Omura. Peace out.
There is no particular theme for this week’s Sounds For Sunday playlist. I just scrolled down new music on Soundcloud and came up with the following set featuring Kamasi Washington, Daniel Herskedal, Tonbruket, Leron Thomas, HIGH RISK, Matt Stevens, Petros Klampanis, the SFJAZZ Collective, Braxton Cook meets Butcher Brown, Lauren Desberg, Jarryd Torff, Becca Stevens Band, and BADBADNOTGOOD. Hope you dig.
It’s starting to feel a lot like Spring here in Montreal (if we don’t take into account yesterday’s snowfall…) so I decided to put together a fun little Sounds For Sunday playlist full of happy and uplifting tracks featuring sounds by Cyrille Aimee, Marco Benevento, Jason Lindner’s Now vs Now, Taylor McFerrin, Kellylee Evans, the Robert Glasper Experiment, Marc Cary, Aron Ottignon, Ari Hoenig, Tim Campanella and Aidan Carroll. Hope you dig it.
Met Jeff “Tain” Watts on Friday and got him to sign my copies of Citizen Tain and Bar Talk which I bought back when I was still in high school. Let’s just say “Tain” is a seriously cool dude. So in honor of Mr. Watts, I decided this week to do a Sounds For Sunday playlist dedicated to drummers featuring Jamire Williams, Chris Dave, Mark Guiliana, Eric Harland, Clarence Penn, Ari Hoenig, Ziv Ravitz, E.J. Strickland and Brian Blade. Once again, my selections were confined to what is made available on Soundcloud and I chose only songs with drummers as the leader of the band. Hope you dig it.
Check out this week’s Sounds for Sunday playlist, vocalist edition, featuring a bunch of dope tracks by the Becca Stevens Band, Kwabs, Nikki Yanofsky, José James, Maria Neckam, Natalia Mateo, Kellylee Evans, Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter, Cecile McLorin Salvant, Akua Allrich, Sarah Elizabeth Charles, Laura Mvula, Meshell Ndegeocello, Lauren Desberg, Chris Turner, Kat Edmonson, Gretchen Parlato, Sara Serpa and Stacey Kent. Hope you dig it.
