Playing This Week in the Kevmobile

Being the week of jazz camp, a few new releases by my colleagues were added into the mix this week, along with the usual collection of new stuff and summer reruns:
  • MONDAY: Edward Petersen and The Test, "The Mission." Camp week begins with a new CD from New Orleans-based tenorman who's also my longtime camp colleague.

  • TUESDAY: Chucho Vald├ęs, "Chucho's Steps." Recent release from Cuban piano master, aka "the only star in Irakere who didn't defect."

  • WEDNESDAY: David Binney, "The Luxury of Guessing." 1995 release from acclaimed NYC-based altoist/composer.

  • THURSDAY: Ben Allison, "Think Free." Tuneful 2009 release from prolific bassist/composer.

  • FRIDAY: The debut album from James Farm. It was just played in here a few weeks ago, but well worth the repeat.

  • SATURDAY: Stockton Helbing, "Battlestations & Escape Plans." Brand-new CD of originals from amazing drummer who's also one of my camp colleagues.

  • SUNDAY: Radiohead, "The King of Limbs." Latest release from band known for its influence on younger jazz musicians.
And now that camp is over, and out-of-town travels are done for a while, we should be back to a more "normal" week next week--but still some great music with only a few reruns!
