Free Jazz Alchemist Radio with Nature Boy, Charles, Mike, Daniel and others

While the new reviews on the blog present pretty much what kind of music I'm usually listening to, especially when it comes to jazz department, the historic attiture towards the calendar in the radio program reminds me quite often about musicians and music I haven't been in touch for a while. Making for a great opportuninty to get back to those sounds and melodies that maybe are not as exciting as they used to be, but still represent big part of my musical self-education. That will be pretty much the case of tomorrow's playlist with (on the occasion of their birthdays) some Bill Frisell, Charles Lloyd, Lennie Tristano, couple versions of "Nature Boy" in tribute to Nat King Cole. 
On the more contemporary side there's birthday of Daniel Levin (he'll be playing a duo with Rob Brown late this month in Krakow plus I just got the new cd on Not Two where he's playing but won't be able to choose anything new for the playlist, propably next week). 
Plus a song a-piece from Billie Holliday and Nina Simone based on a birthday wish from a friend of mine (happy birthday Agata!) which I could not decline.

Hope you'll join me. Appointment is tomorrow (monday) 8.00 pm CET on and the facebook chat. Playlist will be published here during the program and, as is the habbit lately, it will be re-played again (so, around 10 pm CET) to those who were late or would like to listen again :)
