It's the beginning of a new year, and thus the beginning of a new year of music. This week's show doesn't have all new music, but it'll get there. We're easing in.

The Line-Up for 5 January 2018

Dr. Lonnie Smith - Juju
I've been loving All In My Mind for the last few weeks, and this take on "Juju" in particular. The album drops this Friday.
dela - Get Busy
Jaimie Branch - Theme Nothing
We just got this reviewed last week so we aren't left out of the hullabaloo around Jaimie Branch.
Wayne Escoffery - Acceptance
Just got ahold of Vortex and will be checking it out soon.
Mndsgn - Sheets
Takaaki - Evening Glow
This made it onto the KRTU shelves recently, so I figured I'd give it some play and check it out.
Hiromi & Edmar Castaneda - A Harp in New York
This has been on the air a bit lately on the radio station but I hadn't given it enough play myself, so I'm correcting that.
Julian Lage - The Ramble
I'm liking what I'm hearing of Modern Lore, the new Julian Lage album.
Kamasi Washington - Integrity
This song was shockingly short and I wanted to make sure it fit in the hour.
Combsy - East Tulsa Stomp
I'm going to continue to sing Combsy's praises.
Flying Lotus - Zodiac Shit
Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet - Inter-Are
This just seemed like a good way to close the hour as I continue to seek out 2018 solutions while not throwing out the baby with the 2017 bathwater.

While we have you attention, we have a small favor to ask of you...

Nextbop has been working hard to promote new and innovative types of jazz music since 2009, but given our niche status we simply cannot survive on banner advertising, especially in this age of Adblock. This is why we have created a Patreon campaign to collect monthly donations from our fans. This has become our primary source of income. If you value the work we do, you can help for as little as $1 per month. This would make a huge difference in assuring proper wages for our writers and would give us the opportunity to create better more in-depth content for you, our readers.
