Sarah Elizabeth Charles - "Free of Form" feat. Christian Scott

Vocalist Sarah Elizabeth Charles has continuously dazzled us here, standing out as a singer with a voice as airy as a breeze or as gusty as a thunderstorm. Whether on her own, with her previous group, Manner Effect, or with her new group, SCOPE, Charles is always a voice that can't help but stand out front and call attention. This is no more true than on her new album, Free of Form, which she is set to release in October on Stretch Music/Ropeadope Records. The album, which features Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah guesting on a few songs throughout as well as co-producing this collection alongside Charles, floats in all those realms between jazz of all stripes, R&B, and soul. This is no more clear than in the ethereal title track. Check it out after the jump and be on the lookout for Free of Form when it drops October 6th.

Live in the studio, this is where the magic happens, particularly when I've only got a handful of ideas but still can put an hour together.

I've been a little caught up in the last couple weeks so I'm lately posting last week's Line-Up, but I'm making it stretch.

I didn't have many ideas this week for the show, stumbling upon many of my ideas for what to play, yet somehow, as usual, it all came together.

Butcher Brown - Jam in the Van

Ben Gray

It’s no secret that Butcher Brown gets some love around here, and some newly released videos aren’t going to change that. The band gets down on "Fiat", "Lysol", and "AfroKuti #3", really digging into these tunes and stretching them out significantly (check out DJ Harrison on the keys on "Fiat", pushing that tune into some new territory). Check out the videos after the jump for some mid-week funk.
