Playlist for The Turnaround, August 28

Well, after an eleven plus year absence from college radio, I’m back.  This year I’m happy to be co-hosting a jazz show with my man Lucas Homer on KU’s student station, KJHK 90.7.  We call the show, The Turnaround, and it features a diverse mix of contemporary jazz (sometimes leaning towards the bit obscure or “out” side of things), classic gems, and the occasional nod to the deep Kansas City tradition.  For those of you outside of Lawrence, Kansas, you can hear the show streaming online (kjhk.org) every Wednesday night from 8-10pm central time.

After each show I plan to post our playlist, so you can see what we played.  Below is what we played last night, so if what we played looks good to you, join us each and every Wednesday night from 8-10.

Avishai Cohen (bass), “One for Mark”
