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

Sebastien Helary

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.

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.
