The Line-Up for 11 February 2011

I had an idea that I wanted to carry out for this week's Line-Up based largely on Flying Lotus' takeover of Benji B's show on BBC radio a couple of weeks ago. I listened to this set recently and I felt my life changing. I was rethinking jazz and radio and music in general and I just had to bring some of that vibe to The Line-Up this week. I think this is the most chill I've ever sounded on the radio. This may have been one of my favorite shows to have ever put together. Plus, I finally figured out how to play music in the background of my talking! Boy, is that ever complicated.

Today was rather interesting. Early this morning (at time of recording), San Antonio saw its first snowfall since 1985. Some places saw all of 3 inches of snow. Yes, it's not a lot but it is for us and it caused much of the city to shut down. Still I'm a professional so I made sure to get a show to you this week and a good one it is, too.

I really had no clue what to play for this week. I almost just put together a whole show of Radiohead covers (that could still happen at some point). Still, I put together a show with a good mix of new and old that came together pretty well with little hints here and there for next week's show commemorating Joe Sample's birthday (on February 1st).

This is one of those shows that came together in an odd way. I had an idea for what I wanted to do when I headed to the station, scrapped much of it while putting the show together, and now I'm oddly proud of this mix. Hopefully you'll feel the same.

Also, someone let me know if the descriptions I add for each track is really necessary. I think I may cut them out completely after a while. The intros are a must, but the whole "why I picked this track at this spot" thing may not be necessary, unless I'm linking something important or something. I'm still mulling it over.

Alright, so I clearly couldn't make it to New York for Winter Jazz Fest, I still can relish in such a festivals options with a radio station's resources before me. You can do the same by proxy.
