• Harvesting

    ‘Tis the season of “Best of” lists. I have never composed, and doubt I ever will, my own year-end list of “best of” releases, but I do take a look at lists that others create to see what is/was new and interesting that I missed. For today’s show, I pulled some “Best of 2017” tracks from the excellent YouTube music review channel, deep_cuts and the British avant garde music magazine The Wire. There was also time for sharing outstanding new releases by New York Electric Piano, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Julian Lage, and Björk. Checkout this week’s playlist to see and/or listen to all of this week’s discoveries—old and new.

    Don't forget that you can listen to all of the music from the last episode, “Birthdays” (click here). This week's artwork, “harvesting” was created by yours truly.

    Thanks for listening!

  • Birthdays

    Two significant birthdays happened over the last couple of weeks. Two musical heavyweights, Jimi Hendrix and Jaco Pastorius, would have celebrated birthdays on November 27th and December 1st, respectively. On this week’s Alloy broadcast the playlist included some classics by these two musicians who singlehandedly redefined their instruments and music, forever. Somehow, if both were alive in each other’s time period, I do believe they would have played together. Imagine the spark and fire that this dynamic collaboration would have generated. Checkout this week’s playlist to see and/or listen to all of this week’s discoveries and rediscoveries, old and new.

  • More Rabbits than Holes

    Missing doing a live show last week meant I had a few more opportunities to go headlong into a few music-related rabbit holes. What did I pull out of the various rabbit holes? Checkout this week’s playlist to see and listen to this week’s discoveries and rediscoveries, old and new. You can also checkout “Down the Music Rabbit Hole” my blog post about the various musical discoveries made this week.

  • The Color of New

    It seems to be the season of new releases. This week's musical palette focused on a number of colorful new releases—from solo piano work to larger ensembles and many points in between. All is revealed in this week’s playlist.
