Playlist - 88 Jazz Place - Monday

I don't want people to get the idea that all I do here on the PN blog is post playlists. It's just that this weekend I had a very busy time musically -- four out of five days I was on the air, and on Saturday we started with Straight, No Chaser. There will be more reviews and interviews, as well as podcasts, available here in the weeks and months to come. I've only just now gotten started on what the blog is supposed to be -- a place to find cool sounds and words first.

On another note, it certainly was fine to be playing jazz and blues on MLK Day. I felt just a little more connected to the issues and history of what Dr. King stood, fought, and died for -- civil rights, peace, equality, and social justice. I did my best to play a few songs here and there that recognize the tradition of struggle. Have a peaceful day, everyone. Me, I'm spending time with my family.
