ahhh yes, it is once again the forty-third consecutive Tuesday in Sundogistan and that means #jazz

This week I find myself in the mood to hear from some more of the women of jazz, featuring Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Melody Gardot, Sophie Milman, Emilie-Claire Barlow, Ana Caram, Rosa Passos, Joyce Moreno, and starting things off with none other than Molly Ringwald, so if some of these tones can help soothe your tense bones, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

ahhhh yes, against all odds it is once again Sunday morning in Sundogistan and that still means #jazz

this week, I'll be catching up on some recent releases from the likes of Kenny Barron, Shabaka and the Ancestors, Irreversible Entanglements, the late Hugh Masekela, Avishai Cohen, Kandace Springs, and Wynton Marsalis, so if some new tones to ease your moans is an idea you're glad to hear, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

ahhhhh yes, it is once again (and still) Sunday morning in Sundogistan and that (still) means #jazz

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)

If you're up for some sonic distancing, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

:blobpats: :cofepats: :blobpats:

Ahhhh yes, it is one again Sunday morning in Sundogistan and that means #jazz

This week, as we hunker down and practice our social distancing, I'm of a mind to listen to a little tonal distancing as performed by Thelonious Monk

So, if some sparse plunks and semi-random grunts might help you get through this new to-do, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

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

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

:blobpats: :cofepats::blobpats:

ahhhh, yes, it is once again Sunday morning in Sundogistan and that means #jazz even on a late one

This week, my head is stuffy and my mind is churning and I'm in the mood for some Jaco amongst other things, so I'm going to let the algoshuffle take me on a trip.

If you're up for semi-random fusion and the like, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

:blobpats::cofepats::blobpats:

Here's a #jazz hot take for this Sunday morning: Nina Simone was a better pianist than Monk, and I say this as a huge Monk lover.

If you go and declare this to any given jazz cat, you'll probably meet heavy resistance, but if you pull out a handful of piano-heavy cuts Nina recorded, it's nigh impossible to still call it for Monk.

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

Friday marked the 87th anniversary of the birth of Nina Simone, a singularly powerful voice in both music and society and well deserving of your attention and mine. As such, I'll be listening to a selection of recordings spanning her recording career.

So, if you're of a mood for some righteous love and hate, then you should not wait to join me over on @nowplaying

As the number of Fahrenheit degrees currently reading in Sundogistan is still lower than the number of years I've trod this earth, I am in need of some heat! Thusly, I'm tapping on Pérez Prado and Xavier Cugat today to bring me some of the warmth my soul seeks.

So if some mambo and rhumba might get you out from under whatever it is that's got you needin' to recover, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

Here's a peek into this week's planning session:

me: what should I listen to for SMiS this week?

lou bega: the trumpet!

me: ok, lou, got it

So this week, I'll be listening to some trumpets, deftly operated by Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan, Clifford Brown, Donald Byrd, and Woody Shaw (with Freddie Hubbard to bring it full circle).

If you think some sass from the brass would really kick ass, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

:blobpats::cofepats::blobpats:

Ahhhh yes, it is once again Sunday morning in Sundogistan, and that does mean #jazz

This week, as I continue to putter and muddle my way through some lab work, I'll be listening to some albums I've yet to hear, with recordings by Lili Añel, Gregg August, Brian Simpson & Steve Oliver, Christian McBride, Kayla Waters, and Mike Phillips.

So, if some new stuff sounds just good enough to make your Sunday not so tough, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

This morning, as the sun brightens the skies and our local temperatures creep back into a more tolerable zone, I'm of a mind to spend the day listening to the Weather Report, beginning to end.

So, if some uplifting tones from old fusion cats could ease aches and moans and other feelings like that, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

:blobpats: :cofepats: :blobpats:

ahhhhh yes, it is one again Sunday morning in Sundogistan and that means, as it always does, #jazz

Dragging ass into the lab this morning and in the mood to hear some familiar voices, so I'll be focusing my auditory attention on two favorites from my lifetime timeline, Take 6 and New York Voices, because I'm sappy and they make me happy.

If this sounds like it might just fit with today and your plans for it, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

This first week of 2020 I'll be listening to some Iranian jazz, because fuck the patriarchy in all its forms; my people live everywhere.

So, if you're down to swing and bop with a Persian lot, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

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

For this, the last Sunday of the year 2019, I am going to reprise a playlist from earlier in the year based around jazz as music of protest. I can think of no better preparation for the year ahead.

So if you're mad as hell at the status quo as well, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

I'll be taking it easy this week with some seasonal selections as chosen by The Algoshuffle due to the obligations I've taken on with the small folk in my life, so if some random peace and goodwill to all sounds like a pretty good call, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

It's hella busy season in Sundogistan, so I'm calling on Hiromi, Michael Brecker, Hiroshima, Keiko Matsui, Vince Guaraldi, and the back catalog of GRP Records to help power us through.

If some sounds that are smooth yet cookin' are the vibes for which you're lookin' then feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying

:blobpats: :cofepats: :blobpats:

Hey y'all - Sunday morning in Sundogistan is on hiatus this week because my wife is having a rough time dealing with her MS challenges today and could use some extra attention.

Please #jazz amongst yourselves in a disorderly fashion as time allows.
