Playlist: May 1, 2009

KZSU playlist for Friday, May 1, 3:00 p.m. to 5:20 p.m.

The final set starts with Kyle Bruckmann‘s Wrack, which has a tough, aggressive middle but an overall slow aesthetic, and then gets into droney tones up through the Ellery Eskelin, which starts out with long accordion tones before getting into choppy, dynamic territory. That was a fun set to put together.

The Donald “Duck” Bailey recording is a modern one, in a quintet with Charles Tolliver (trombone) and Odean Pope (tenor sax). It’s got a progressive mainstream sound, if that makes sense — I’m not sure you’d call it free jazz, but it’s plenty creative with some compelling writing behind it, and of course some longtime ace musicians in the band.

Opened the show with some old, old Ken Vandermark stuff from 1993.

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