This session of Bridging the Gap is one of those unorthodox public radio moments that is unplanned. There were about three songs I had planned out, and then ran out of time... so the rest of the set is picked on the fly on gut feeling, dead reckoning, and bone tired decision making.

Tonight we're gonna give the drummer some, and pay tribute to Jazz drummer Jimmy Cobb who passed away at 91. Each song featured in this session has Cobb  behind the drums, and is a collection of some of greatest recordings in Jazz.

The title for this session of Bridging the Gap is closer to the picture then the selection, which is a run though textures of latin-electro. With special focus on new music from Dengue Dengue Dengue, Populous, and Buscabulla.

This is one of those shows that starts off as single song that inspires and entire evening of music.
