This week I woke up longing for a holiday that's only a few months behind up, yet I feel the need to top up my tank on that holiday's vibe, so I'm just going to go with it.

this week, I'm going to be falling back and spending some time with a kid who was a real up and comer early on, growing up in a jazz loving family in the jazz capital of the world. he picked up more popular appeal as his work started to get the nod for a few films that hit it big, and now he's one of the most recognizable jazz stars for folks who don't usually consider themselves jazzers.

I woke up this week with one name in my mind, and that's usually a pretty good sign that they're saying something I need to hear said. Accordingly, today we'll be spending the day with Hiromi Uehara and her piano.

So, if some piano jazz with style and pizzazz might be enough to make your day more relaxed, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying or streaming on radio.reclaim.technology/strea

today we'll be dancing around the concept of freedom. not patriotism, freedom. not independence, but interdependence. because jazz gets it.

got a double-header today, thematically speaking, as the cycles have aligned to present both fathers day and the summer solstice on the same dang sunday. so, I'll be starting my day with some selections that make me remember my father and our trips to jazz shows, and then I'll swap over to orb jazz later in my day.

the June Gloom is in full effect in this placetime and the drizzle is threatening to call in reinforcements. these are harsh conditions for a sundog to operate under, so I'm calling in some reinforcements of my own: jazz supergroup Return To Forever whomst burned with the light of a thousand suns.

this week I've found myself back under the sway of one of the biggest personalities to ever make jazz their home, just after what would have been their 95th birthday. a cat who has served me as both an example and a warning. yeah, that means Miles.

In this part of the world, this weekend is usually referred to as the "unofficial start of summer", so I'm busting out some jazz albums that always enhance my summer feels. Stylistically we'll be all over the map, but it'll all be warm, with occasional bursts of hot.

this week will be some vocal jazz, starting with a voice that I haven't spent much time with in a while. she's a singer who's very well known to the older generations but probably not so much to the younger, and she's not known for being a jazzer, but she did a few albums that definitely qualify that I am nostalgic for, so we're going there.

I didn't really have much of a direction in mind for today's listening as of yesterday afternoon, but with Andrew going down the guitar rabbit hole last evening and still stomping around down there this morning I figure it's a good day for some John Scofield.

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.

So, if some tones and grooves from women with moves might be what soothes your end-of-the-weekend blues, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying or streaming on radio.reclaim.technology/strea

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

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.

:blobpats: :cofepats::blobpats:

ahhhhh yes, it is once again Sunday morning in Sundogistan and that means

this morning I've awoken with my brain deep in some project stuff that's got me needing to look at the world from some different angles. so, some jazz from different angles and little worlds.

it's a kind of busy, kind of hectic kind of day in my world today, and I have a lot of thoughts pulling me in various directions. when I find myself overwhelmed there's one jazz master who can always bring the calm, and that person is Bill Evans.

:cofepats::blobpats::cofepats:

ahhhh yes, it is once again Sunday morning in Sundogistan and that means

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.

:cofepats::blobpats: :cofepats:

ahhhh yes, it is once again Sunday morning in Sundogistan and that means

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.

:blobpats: :cofepats::blobpats:

ahhhh yes, it is once again Sunday morning in Sundogistan and that means
