I had a good deal of running around to do on Friday, dealing with family and a funeral weekend, but I still found the time to make a new, live Line-Up.

The Line-Up for 9 June 2017

The publicity cycle is starting up again for Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah as he prepares to release the second album of his Centennial Trilogy this year, Diaspora, on June 23rd on Ropeadope Records. In fact, he just dropped the hypnotic new single, "The Walk", featuring Sarah Elizabeth Charles' vocals playing the repetitive mantra role again, Elena Pinderhughes' flute floating away, Lawrence Fields' piano looping like he's embodying a frightening John Carpenter Score, and our many CSaA constructing the whole thing and bringing it home. The closer to Diaspora is a dope track you should totally check out after the jump, and then work on pre-ordering the album just a bit further down from there.

Diego Barber - 'One Minute Later'

In the credits of his new album, One Minute Later, out now on Sunnyside, Diego Barber as listed as playing the classical guitar. Based on this album, this seems true in the most cursory, nominal sense. Maybe classic is a state of mind, maybe it's more of a contextual thing. If it is indeed based on context, Barber's playing alongside Ben Williams' bass, Eric Harland's drums, and Alejandro Coello's assorted instrumentation may not lend itself to the name classical.

Dr. Adrian Ruiz is a busy man. Between serving as Director of Jazz Studies at the University of Texas at San Antonio, his freelance work as a jazz trumpeter, and his continued dedication to The Adrian Ruiz Quintet, finding time to put together an album of originals of this high caliber must not have been an easy task.

My great-grandmother passed away last week at the age of 103 and it's taken up a lot of my brain. To some degree, her passing may have affected the picks on the show this week, but so, too, have a number of new album releases. It's the show doing what it usually does-- bringing the newness through the filter of me.
