Last week’s Sounds For Sunday playlist featured Monk Competition Winners. This week I decided to opt for MacArthur Fellows, aka the Genius Grant. Hear tracks by Max Roach, Ken Vandermark, Steve Coleman, Jason Moran, Vijay Iyer, Dafnis Prieto, John Zorn, Steve Lacy, Miguel Zenon, Ornette Coleman, Regina Carter and Meredith Monk. And for all you Cecil Taylor fans out there, my apologies. Couldn’t find any of his music on Soundcloud...

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.
