this week I find myself under a pfizer pfog so I'm not really with it much. low effort day, so I'm gonna toss on a shuffled playlist of mostly inoffensive brunch-ish jazz in case anyone's got any greeting card style activities going on today.

as @yacht got me thinkin' about Patrice Rushen first thing this morning, I'm of a mood to listen to some of the undersung women of jazz today, including the super talented Ms. Rushen, but starting with the brief recording career of Jutta Hipp.

this week is going to be another mostly automated week, as we are mere hours away from our first up-close visit with our newest grandbaby (well, I will not be up-close quite yet as I'm only half-vaxxed so far but we'll be re-doing this trip next month on my behalf) but we're going to start off with the latest release from Alfa Mist that @packetcat turned us onto, released earlier this week, and then we'll go from there.

I am still running significantly lower on the energy spectrum than my usual, so this is going to be a mostly self-directed session this week, folks. Mid-session naps are highly likely.

That said, I'm going to start my morning with some jazz from Prince in the form of 2003's "NEWS" and we'll see what happens from there.

you may have noticed I was pretty quiet yesterday. I found my way into a shenanigans rabbit hole that kept me pretty entranced, to the point where I'm actually coming to you from that rabbit hole already this morning.

so, please enjoy some Herbie Hancock while I keep exploring. I'll poke my head back out in a while, promise.

I woke up this morning with a sound already stuck in my ear, and if you know me at all you know I cannot abide to leave a stuck sound in my ear. obviously the only course of action is to give in and let it ride. that means we're hitching a ride today with the incomparable Charles Mingus and his bands.

I've gotta be honest with y'all, I kinda slacked off on doing any sort of prep for today's listening session due to some self-inflicted distractions, so it's gonna be a loose and sloppy shuffle of some sounds that'll keep me moving through this 23-hour day. that means some japanese jazz fusion is on tap today.

on this last day of February, after a year of being in Sundogistan 24/7 with only the briefest of minor deviations, I find myself struggling to remember that the world keeps turning. in an attempt to try and help reinforce the continuing passage of time, today I'm going to be listening to some newer jazz I've yet to check out yet.

I was torn whilst trying to come up with a theme for this week's session. Early in the week I had thought it'd be fun to do a bunch of jazz covers of not-jazz songs because we could all use some fun right about now.

But I also came to realize I wasn't comfortable going through Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday weekend without paying tribute to one of the truly great leaders in our broken society.

Then I remembered that today is just the first Sunday of this weekend and that I get a second Sunday tomorrow so I've resolved to fill both with jazz.

Today we'll be spending time with a jazz composer and performer who put out a fantastic album dedicated to the remembrance of the struggles of the civil rights movement in the US, the multi-talented Christian McBride.

Tomorrow, jazz covers.

This week I had planned on looking through some of the sparse new releases in the jazz world so far in this new decade of the 21st century, but then I woke up this morning with a strong urge to spend some time with Hugh Masakela, so that's what I'm going with.

to be completely honest, I just realized it is Sunday morning and not Saturday morning because my sense of time is all askew, so obviously I need something to get back on track, so this week I'm gonna shuffle this playlist of Japanese jazz fusion tracks and call it good.

I am so very happy to arrive at the very last Sunday morning of the curs'ed year 2020. This week, I'll be looking back at some of the lovely newly released jazz albums that this heinous year was unable to prevent from happening, including work by Brad Mehldau, Thelonious Monk, and Joshua Redman.
