This week's show isn't filled with shockingly new music, but it's all still pretty new. It's a week to let some songs that have been out a few weeks to soak in a bit.

The Line-Up for 23 August 2013

Brad Mehldau Trio - 26
Friday was Mehldau's birthday, so heeey Brad Mehldau!
Space Ghost - No Friday
Ben Williams - Moontrane
Last week's "Critical Analysis of Covers" piece by Ben Gray was another good one that you should definitely check out if you haven't already.
Warren Wolf - Grand Central
I'm continuing my statement that you should never sleep on Warren Wolf. I'm definitely copping his new album, Wolfgang, and you probably should, too.
Karreim Riggins - Summer Maddness S.A.
Shane Cooper - Drop Down / Deconstruct
I'm putting up Oscillations as a dark horse candidate for one of my favorite albums of the year. I'm making that claim now. It has the element of surprise in its favor.
Linda Oh - Blue Over Gold
Sun Pictures does it again. Linda Oh keeps bringing it.
Gold Panda - Brazil
Ruslan Sirota - In Truth (feat. Chick Corea)
I wanted to do a short set of serene duos. This fit perfectly.
Fred Hersch & Julian Lage - Free Flying (for Egberto Gismonti)
The rest of this album is just as lovely as this track.
Jonti - Pássaros
Pat Metheny & Antonio Sanchez - Tharsis
I'm not sure why I felt like closing with this track but I'm particularly happy with this decision.
