The Second Case of the New Year's International Jazz

12:00pm, 12-30-2018
<< Tropicology

I am following up today with a tradition started last year: international jazz sounds for the show before the New Year.

There's not much in today's show that would qualify as "straight" jazz... instead, I'm playing a range of fusion sounds pairing jazz idioms with international traditions including bossa nova, carimbo, charanga, African folk, and modern club beats.

We start the show today with some folky sounds, including some of the artists featured on the holiday show last week (wedding music from Madagascar; weird sounds from French globetrotter Alain Peters). The second set pushes the envelope a bit with free jazz influences, including a pair of tracks from the oddball among the Buena Vista Social Club releases from World Circuit; the self-titled LP by Orlando "Cachaito" Lopez. We end the first hour today with some uptown funk-jazz in Brazilian and Cuban traditions.

The second hour today kicks off with some jazzy slow jams... then I'll turn the sound toward modern influences. We'll be solidly into modern club territory by the end of the show.

Happy New Year to all!!
