After a week of actually assessing the things that I received, and also of receiving a bunch of new things in my email while being diligent about checking my email, I have constructed an hour of newness that I actually feel confident I could review. many things in the previous week remain because I still feel confident in last week’s decisions. however I will say I did not hear the new Miles Davis album, but I do get to say there is a new Miles Davis album. Who can walk away from that?
The Line-Up for 6 September 2019
Steve Lehman Trio + Craig Taborn – Curse Fraction
Now that The People I Love is out, I’m all over this.

Mo Kolours – Tusk Dance
Extended (Oscar Rossignoli / Brad Webb / Matt Booth)
I didn’t have these guys in rotation for a little while and I wanted to make sure I came back to them.
Chase Baird – Wait and See
Seb wrote about Chase Baird some time ago but I never got his album into my phone until just last week. It showed up on shuffle in the middle of a late night bike ride home Thursday night and I made sure it found a place on the show the following Friday.

Olli Hirvonen – No Light
I was very cognizant in making sure this week that I was not going to play an extremely long track this week but I still wanted to make sure that I played Olli Hirvonen this week.
Space Ghost – Starship 2091
GoGo Penguin – Time-Lapse City
These folks just announced a new EP last week and I wanted to make sure that I was on top of things.
Casimir Liberski – Cosmic Liberty
Ditto my Olli Hirvonen point from earlier.
THEESatisfaction – Juiced
John Coltrane – Blue World
Once I knew I was going to be playing a new Miles Davis song after this, the song just came to me and this set just came together.

Miles Davis – See I See
There is a new Miles Davis album out. I can say that. That is a sentence I can say.
Blacks’ Myths – Mammy’s Revenge
Last week when I played these guys, multiple people asked whether or not they should have played so early in the hour. This week I’m correcting that decision. Nevertheless, I’m very happy they’re here.
