Our guest this morning spoke about making machines out of traditional percussion instruments, then creating a glove he can use as a remote control for his mechanized musical ensemble. Keep up with Jazari at his web site: www.jazarimusic.com:http://www.jazarimusic.com. We also heard new Tracey Thorn, Rachid Taha, and The Very Best as they got ready to play the Cedar Cultural Center:http://www.thecedar.org that night.
It’s our last Monday night here on Jet Set Planet. That’s right, we’re packing up all the crates of vinyl, the 45s, the compact discs, the downloads, and we’re moving to Friday nights at 9 starting June 4th. So tonight, it’s time to celebrate our last Monday of Jet Set Planet. And what a way to celebrate — we’re not playing records from the dollar bin, no sirree. We’re playing records but from the .50 cent bin! We’ll sample the Explosive Vocal Percussion(?) of Myrna March, the African Sounds of Carl Stevens, the Bongo instruction expertise of Jack Burger, and the production library prowess of the Glen Somers Orchestra. PLUS your gonna enjoy an extended double set of tunes from the adult cinema of the early 1970s near the end of the program.
A ton of heavy new dub…and other fun new things this week. The biggest, heaviest new dub arrived in the form of Dr. Echo’s new dub album attributed to his former group The Defendants. Also excellent new rootical vibes from The Manor, Kabir La Amlak, Winston Jarrett, Tony Dubshot, Citizen Sound (with the Rise Ashen remix of “Trouble”), and a number of artists on the new compilations “Italian Dub Community – Showcase Vol. 2” and “Revolutionary Dub Vibrations – Chap. 2”
