Melting Pot

With a lot going on in my personal life and the KPFK fundraiser upcoming, this will be the last Melting Pot for at least a couple weeks. Gave away a ton of tickets and played a good bit of new tracks. Show starts with a early birthday tribute to Rahsaan Roland Kirk, the patron saint of this blog and the show, his 21 minute epic “Saxophone Concerto.” Because of a recording mishap you don’t get the full song (or my intro to this show), but you still get to marvel at the virtuosity of Rahsaan, 19+ minutes of sax solo without taking a breath or a break. New tunes from Antibalas, Gaslamp Killer, Ondatropica, the Afro Latin Vintage Orchestra, KonKoma and more “lost” music from Can. Though I won’t be doing a show for several weeks, there will be plenty of music here on the blog and as I mention in the show, I’ll be spinning some records at The Virgil Tuesday night from 10pm-2am for a night I’m calling “Breakaway,” with hopes it might turn into a regular thing next month. The second hour starts off with a short set that features some funky tunes, a few classic breaks and the basic idea of what “Breakaway” is going to sound like. Enjoy the sounds, the radio show should be back later in August.
