I've been seriously dragging on my work on Jazz for the Masses V, but March 15th presses forward and this week's Line-Up rolls out just about all the folks playing in two weeks. Also, new Linda Oh & Thundercat!

We've made rumblings of it over the last few weeks, trying to get all the details in order, and when it comes to putting on an event during Austin, Texas' hectic South by SouthWest festival, there are always details to put in order, but it's time to make known that Nextbop's fifth annual Jazz for the Masses unofficial day party during the South by SouthWest music festival will be taking place Wednesday, March 15th, from 1-7pm at El Sapo Botanas and Burgers at 1900 Manor Rd with performances from Braxton Cook, The Project H, The Whale, Troker, and NORI featuring vocalist Akina Adderley.

We've already made note about how excited we are for Kneebod's dope new album, Anti-Hero, dropping March 3rd on Motéma. As the quintet continues touring and general mustering of enthusiasm for the new album, they've also just released the studio session video for the song "Uprising". Check it out after the jump.

Harriet Tubman - 'Araminta'

Harriet Tubman, the trio of guitarist Brandon Ross, bassist Melvin Gibbs and drummer J.T. Lewis, have been weird for twenty years now. Their free jazz essence is certainly an acquired taste, however it's also a free jazz rooted in soul that makes their music so memorable. In the latest album, Araminta, out this Friday on Sunnyside, the band brings along trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith for a raucous collection of songs full of fiery energy, even when the burners are on low. Really, Araminta is truly great.

I had a slight agenda this week. I wanted to make sure to play the new Christian Scott song that's out in the world right now. I wanted to note how I did eventually review the Extended album. I wanted to make known my love of the latest Jeremy Pelt album and the new Harriet Tubman album. There were some things I really wanted to play this week and I'm glad I got to do so.
