028: San Diego Jazz Piano Vol. 1

We're proud to premier the first podcast of an occasional series: San Diego Jazz Piano.  In each edition we'll bring together a few different local pianist for one-off solo performances.  This week we'll get things in gear with Danny Green, Joshua White, and Mikan Zlatkovich.










Mr. Green was kind enough to host 'Volume 1' at his new townhouse, and we made good use of the Baldwin. We're getting used to recording in the very live room but everything came together with some incredible performances.

PLAYLIST:
-Lullaby for a Poet (Danny Green)
-Nocturne in C minor (Danny Green)
-Untitled (Joshua White)
-Souly Soul Soul (Joshua White)
-Chick's Song (Mikan Zlatkovich)
-Jazz in the AM (Mikan Zlatkovich)

027: The Mattson 2

At long last - the The Mattson 2 podcast!  Yes, I know that was redundant.  And these two identical-twins could almost be the the same person. Good luck telling their voices apart during the interview.

Their new CD Feeling Hands recently came out and has been featured on NPR.
Without further ado, enjoy San Diego's post-rock-surf-jazz golden boys.

down and dirty

Well, there was some drama in Dirty Blvd land...


Car exploded in a puff of white smoke, then the bike got a flat (making it hard to retrieve said car). A mic broke, then a bit of mixing trouble, and (believe it or not) we are a one-man operation over here, so that makes it all the more crazy.


It's Friday already, but have no fear-we'll have some (back-dated) Dirty Thrusdays episodes coming your way in no-time.


Happy 4th!
