The Line-Up for 25 February 2011

I don't think I have much of a theme for this week other than this being a collection of mostly new music that I got in this week. Actually, some of it is new and some of it has just been waiting for the opportunity to come to light.

Brad Mehldau - Lithium
The moment I'm done putting this playlist together, I'm going to tear this station apart until I find this album and rip it to my BlackBerry to have for my very own. It's new and I neeeeeed it.
Nicholas Payton - Freesia feat. Esperanza Spalding
If you do a standard Google, you'll run across this mixtape somewhere out there in the Wild West that is the Internet. It's free so you might as well put a little work into it. Also, it's still waiting for confirmation but Payton just got on Twitter and he is nothing if not entertaining (like hearing him talk or hearing his music).
Mister Barrington - Wrong Number!
I've been waiting for Owen Biddle of The Roots to get on a project like this, so I was really glad to see it come to fruition.
Q.E.D. - Soft Lights
I've had this album for a little while but have been waiting for just the right time to play something from it on The Line-Up.
Henry Threadgill Zooid - It Never Moved
You may not like this at first, I didn't, but when it finally clicks in your head, a whole new world will appear.
Gerry Gibbs and the Electric Thrasher Orchestra - Directions (Take #1)
I love Gerry Gibbs in practically all his endeavors so hearing him play Miles tunes in his fusion period with a large ensemble like this is absolutely majestic.
Miles Davis - Hip-Skip
When I ran across this over at Destination: Out, I knew it would find a spot on The Line-Up. This show is just made for Miles in his most contentious period.
Alice Coltrane - Journey in Satchidananda
I don't really know why I picked this song to wrap up the show this week. I was replacing a song in this slot that I absolutely knew wouldn't fit and this actually just shouted out to me that it would be the proper replacement.

Mic Breaks
Toro y Moi - Intro/ChiChi
Tycho - Lapse
Flying Lotus - Breathe . Something/Stellar STar
Washed Out - Feel It All Around
