Friday Afternoon In The Universe Not On Spotify? Jazz Underground From 11/22/13

This installment of Notes From The Jazz Underground features the playlist based on the November 22nd show.

Host Paul Abella is actually pretty great about carving out themes for these playlists.  But for this week's show there was nothing tying these together other than the central Jazz Underground premise: simply being a not-at-all-typical jazz show.

Good stuff throughout: Get your share of ripping fusion from Brecker Bros, Billy Cobham, and in a slightly different way, Algernon.Snarky Puppy featuring Lalah Hathaway anchor the show with "Something", from their Family Dinner LP, a tune that's become quite an Internet sensation.  The incomparable Les McCann & Eddie Harris version of "Compared To What" (jam fans may recall the fine Aquarium Rescue Unit cover).  Marbin recently appeared on Paul's list of ten Chicago jazz acts to see in 2014.

But, I also uncovered the travesty of all travesties.  Medeski Martin & Wood's Friday Afternoon In The Univesrse is not available on Spotify?  Rectified that with a YouTube clip, but still.

Notes From The Jazz Underground runs Friday nights on WDCB 90.9 FM.
