Chet Doxas, arguably one of Montreal’s most illustrious saxophonists, left my endearing hometown three years ago, off to pursue his dream in the bigger and better pastures of the Big Apple. His first project since his self-imposed exile, entitled Rich in Symbols, is set to drop September 8th on Ropeadope Records.

Marquis Hill - Fantasy feat. Harold Green III (Tiffany Gouche' Cover)

Marquis Hill is at his best unadulterated by the constraints put on him by his label. Yes I’d much rather listen to Modern Flows EP Vol. 1 than The Way We Play any day of the week. So when he drops a single, you check it out. His latest is a cover of Tiffany Gouché’s “Fantasy” stemming from an impromptu jam with Joel Ross on vibraphone, Junius Paul on bass, Makaya McCraven on drums and Harold Green III performing spoken word. This is Hill at his finest: uncensored, uncut, fresh and exciting. Check it out below the jump.

Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast nightfall on Friday and I decided to still ride my bike to the radio station hours before and make this radio show live, because I have foolish moments tempered in my ability to constantly check forecasts on my phone.

It took me a little while to put this show together, slightly longer than usual. It's an hour of new discoveries and a couple sure things than require turning your speakers up really loudly. I stumbled into an hour of extra care.
