Man From the Future
by Polyrhythmics
(26 plays) | (0 fans)

Brand new album from the local funk group. "It’s a live instrumental mixtape,” says trombonist Elijah Clark. Drummer Grant Schroff adds, “If you think about a DJ crafting a set, it’s more about crafting pockets of different vibes. There’s tension and release and it’s less about songs and more about a cinematic piece of music that has different movements."

So What
by Miles Davis
(23 plays) | (0 fans)

Good morning Seattle, and welcome to the Tuesday edition of The Morning Show. How are you? Reach out to us at dj@kexp.org Miles Davis, trumpeter, bandleader, and composer was born on this day in 1926. He passed away at the age of 65 on September 28, 1991. NPR Reports that jazz drummer, Jimmy Cobb, best known for backing Miles Davis on 1959’s 'Kind of Blue,' has died from lung cancer at age 91. Cobb, born in Washington D.C. in 1929, began his touring career with saxophonist Earl Bostic in 1950. This led to gigs with vocalist Dinah Washington, pianist Wynton Kelly, and saxophonist Cannonball Adderley. He joined the iconic Davis on several other albums, including 1959’s Porgy and Bess, 1960’s Sketches of Spain, 1961’s Someday My Prince Will Come, and the 1962 live set Miles Davis at Carnegie Hall.
