Much of the music I've gotten this week were live recordings so much of the music on this week's Line-Up will reflect that. Not much to say, really.

Terri Lyne Carrington - Unconditional Love
I've yet to sit down and listen to this album in a sitting but generally when tracks come up randomly in shuffle, I've been impressed.
Booker T. Jones - The Vamp
I keep coming back to this album. The Road From Memphis really is my favorite album of the year so far.
David Weiss & Point of Departure - I Have A Dream
Snuck In and Snuck Out are albums recorded as the first and second sets of a night at New York City's Jazz Standard. That had to have been a hot night in NYC.
Kneebody - You Have One Unheard Message
This was a last minute add to the show. I had an older Kneebody track in this slot but I just got some new material from the band. This is all in anticipation of their upcoming show in Austin this Friday. I'm pretty psyched about it.
Eric Harland - Voyager
Of all the new live albums I've gotten in this past week, the Eric Harland has impressed me the most. This is also just off the heels of James Farm, so I think Harland is enjoying a good run right now.
Matt Stevens - After All
This song has been on my mind lately, so here it resides.
The Bad Plus - Velouria
Honestly, I needed a short selection and TBP still wows me with this cover.

Mic Breaks
The Stuyvesants - Stuyvesant Swing
Ben Harper - Get There From Here
Washed Out - Far Away
The Stuyvesants - Roosevelt Projects Jam Session
