ahhh yes, it is once again Sunday morning in Sundogistan and that means #jazz

this week, due to local conditions, I'm turning on the loudest, raucous, most annoying jazz I can find, cranking all my amplifiers to eleven, and waking up all the heckin demolition experts that seemingly live literally everywhere surrounding the Sundogistani Consulate.

just kidding. starting things off with Chet Baker and we'll see where we go from there. Feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying.

This week, I woke up with two words repeating in my mind: Jimmy Smith Jimmy Smith Jimmy Smith...

To get my mind to stfu, we're starting things off with Jimmy Smith at the organ. We'll see where we end up when Jimmy decides he's done for the day.

If that sounds like the sounds to help your week rebound, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying (for probably the last week before it turns into an actual stream you can really follow along with)

This week, I'm of a mind to dip into some older albums, so I'm queueing up some of Kenny Dorham's Afro-Cuban work, some of Roy Ayers' West Coast Vibes, and miles and miles of Miles.

this week, as I continue to wean myself from the streaming services and go back to feeding myself from the music available locally, I'll be listening to some newly acquired albums from the likes of Stan Getz, Wes Montgomery, Ella Fitzgerald, and Miles Davis, as well as some others that might sneak in along the way.

This week it is mother's day here in Sundogistan, and our resident mother is feeling down because it's been a long while since she's had some time with our kids and grandkids, so we're taking a jaunt to go visit her mother from a respectful distance across her front yard to try and make today a lil better for both of them.

None of that's about jazz, but it is what it is.

Please #jazz amongst yourselves in my absence, and I will be sure to double down on the jazz next week.

this week it's time for me to ease in to saying goodbye to a legend. As of two weeks ago, Ellis Marsalis, jazz piano master as well as mentor and father of no fewer than five world-class jazz masters in their own right (and a sixth son who is a poet and photog), has moved on to join the celestial cabaret that awaits us all. In his honor and our sadness, I will be listening to a number of albums from Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, and the man himself, Ellis.

After a long month this week, I'm feeling like some solo works are in order, so I've done a cold load-out of (what I believe to be) some solo jazz tracks (but I haven't listened to all of them yet, so surprises may be in store)

we're off to our legally mandated late start this week, but we're here, and what we need to hear is some women of jazz on this International Women's Day, so that's what's on tap. Gonna sit back and relax with the sounds of Emily Bear, Hiromi, Esperanza Spalding, Terri Lyne Carrington, Tia Fuller, and the incomparable Dorothy Donegan, so if that sounds like a good play for a tragically short day, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying
