Playlist: March 20, 2009

KZSU playlist for Friday, March 6, 2009, 3:00 p.m. to 4:50 p.m.

Items of note:

….. I got the new Buffalo Collision CD, featuring Tim Berne along with two members of The Bad Plus. Haven’t given it a thorough listen. I found a segment of the first track that I thought would work well on-air, but it turned out to have fewer fireworks than I’d heard at first. The segment had a good, strong flow to it, but I don’t think I let the band put their best foot forward. I’ll do them proper later on; meanwhile have a look at what Stef thinks.

"Farmers By Nature" - source: AUM Fidelity….. The trio CD from Gerald Cleaver, William Parker, and Craig Taborn is a winner. I wish the sound fidelity was stronger (recorded live at The Stone) but the playing is undeniable. Reviews from Stef and All About Jazz.

….. Found a Mario Pavone/Anthony Braxton CD, a combination of Braxton’s abstractions and some of Pavone’s more wide-open compositions, and even a couple of standards. I’ve known of Pavone as a solid inside/out bandleader but was surprised to see him on something this far out. Released in 1993 on the Music & Arts label.

….. All those Cryptogramophone CDs were in anticipation of a two-night “Cryptonight” series at Yoshi’s next week.

….. Blues pianist and singer Eddie Bo died Wednesday, and word was just hitting the major media outlets as my show was progressing. (I can thank the sharp eyes of @siebert on Twitter.) We’ve got a couple dozen Eddie Bo tracks spread out among various blues compilations, so I had to delve into that stash.

Most album titles link into KZSU’s Zookeeper database; the Album Review icon means there’s a review or description there as well.
