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.

I couldn't settle on a theme for this session of Bridging the Gap, and it's probably for the better. So it's going to be an eclectic ride with a twist of Hawaiian music.

Throughout the day there's been a steady mist of rain. If you squint your eyes it's almost like gently falling snow. It's also great inspiration for a playlist of mellow, pretty songs for this Monday evening.

Keeping it eclectic for this session of Bridging the Gap, mixing electronic African percussion, soulful creole, a little Hip-hop and other tasty global delights.

Working on low hanging, yet extremely tasty low hanging fruit this evening on Bridging the Gap. Selecting songs from my collection, both favorites as well as songs that I haven't heard for a while. These shows are my favorite to do, stringing together memories and killer songs in a free flowing selection.

Seriously, what's going on? There seems to be a serious uptick of musician deaths. Both from Coronavirus and natural causes. It's almost starting to dominate the programing in the most grim way.

Electronic music owes so much to Kraftwerk, and earlier this week their co-founder Florian Schneider passed away at the age of 73.

Once again, a show prompted by a memorial. This session of Bridging the Gap is going to be an upbeat collection of Ska, Reggae and Rocksteady music paying tribute to singer Millie Small who broke-through with her hit "My Boy Lollipop". She passed away yesterday at the age of 72.

This is one of those shows that starts off as single song that inspires and entire evening of music. I this case it's the tropical swing of John Williams' Cantina Band from Star Wars (May the 4th be with you). So we're going to start there, and swing through steel drums, gypsy swing, and a few other surprises.

In this session of Bridging the Gap we pay tribute to drummer Tony Allen, the foundational drummer behind the texture and rhythm of Afro-Beat music. Allen passed away on April 29th, 2020 from a heart attack.

Exploring new releases this evening on Bridging the Gap. Heavy on the Indie Latin with releases from Wonderwheel Records, and some Indie Rock, Acid Jazz and more.

Since we all need to relax dring these COVID times, this session of Bridging the Gap is going to be a chilled collection of Downtempo, Bossa and Cool Jazz.

Since we're all stuck at home, I thought I'd bring the party to you this evening on Bridging the Gap. So I'm mixing a little dance set live in the studio, and adding in a little Deep House melts into, Latin House, and Afro-Funky rhythms.

This entire show is set around the bubbly breaks and swing of the 1st song... April Showers from Proleter. So it's going to be a collection of Gypsy Swing, vintage jazz set to electronic beats and a little Bossa.

Jazz is Not Dead! Maybe sleeping a little, but it's not dead. This session of Bridging the Gap is an exploration into the current state of Jazz, experimental, aggressive and totally groovy.
