The good folks at WBGO are back at it, making new music available to stream.
This week has something a little different since KRTU is doing a big push for José James' upcoming concert in San Antonio on June 21st. So, there's something just a little bit different this week, but I'm making it a whole other thing.
The Line-Up for 13 June 2014
Vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson’s 1975 album Montara is named for the town in California where Hutcherson lives just south of San Francisco. That helps to explain the sunny, vibe-y feel of the whole album, and in particular of the title track.
As if things haven't been busy enough for Medeski Martin & Wood, the hits just keep on coming. Just a couple months ago, the trio teamed up with guitarist Nels Cline to release the live recording Woodstock Sessions, Vol. 2, but that was just them getting warmed up for 2014. Come September, pianist John Medeski, drummer Billy Martin, and bassist Chris Wood are set to release their new album Juice alongside their regular collaborator, guitarist John Scofield, on MMW's own Indirecto Records.
Our friends from down under, Wondercore Island, the artist management team/PR consultants/awesome collective of weirdoes that brought us Hiatus Kaiyote just released a new mixtape this week featuring new music and remixes from the HK solo members Simon Mavin, Kirkis, and Clever Austin, as well as from the likes of harpist Low Leaf, Kris Bowers, and so many more. It's fully of the jazz, house-y inventiveness that we've come to know and love from this bundle of artists. Check it out and cop the free mixtape after the jump.
