What to play, what to play…
It’s a short month for me here at CJTR. I skipped the first week of this month for an out-of-town wedding and I’ll be skipping out again next week, but this time for a paying gig (only slightly more forgivable). Such sordid times are these! What makes it worse is that next Wednesday is the last of the month, which means we’re going to miss Long-Play Wednesday! I even have a few new records to show off, but we’ll just have to wait until next month and I’ll make it all-the-better.
Stay tuned to 91.3 FM and check back on this page for information about the very special show that will be filling in for me next week.
Before then, though, let’s talk of present things! Since it’s a short month for me, I’ve decided to pull a couple of tricks out of the bag. There’ll still be a healthy helping of jazz (I’ve got some Coltrane, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and Charles Mingus on standby), but I’m going to throw a couple of cool newish pop tunes at you (Feist, Justice) a new and very talented young Canadian jazz singer (Nikki Yanofsky), some folky stuff (Hayden, Leonard Cohen) and we’ll see what else we’ve got time for.
Tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 (use the new links at the top of this page) and check back here for a playlist sometime after the show.
