Podcast Special – 2014 releases

Hello and welcome to this special edition of the PB Podcast. Today’s podcast looks at the first 6 months of the year as I play some of my favorite releases from 2014. I’ve read and listened to other 1/2 year wrap-ups, and while I occasionally see one of the releases that I love, I haven’t seen all of them – this is my corrective.

So, sit back and listen to an hour’s worth of great music from Real Estate, Beck the War on Drugs, Sharon Jones, Rosanne Cash and many others as I play some of the best music from the first half of 2014.

Extra: Jazz Podcast 2

Hello and welcome to the 2nd jazz podcast. While the first jazzcast focused on new music, this one has music from 1947 to 1961. It’s more of a Jazz 101 type pod, as some of the songs are considered classics. We start with Stan Getz (pre-Bossa Nova phase), slide into Clifford Brown, then get a classic Oliver Nelson tune that is followed by Cannonball Adderley. The final set has Mingus, Monk and Bill Evans. Beautiful music. Thank you for tuning in.

Jazzcast 1

Hello and welcome to my first “jazzcast”, a jazz podcast that serves as an alternative to my regular podcasts. I love jazz music – overall I probably listen to more jazz than any other genre, but my knowledge of contemporary jazz artists is not strong. This first jazzcast is dedicated to new music in 2014. How do I do it? In part by getting recommendations from Dave Sumner, who has a weblog called Bird is the Worm and has a weekly column at eMusic’s Wondering Sound page. It’s where I picked up a bunch of the music on the podcast.
The music you’ll hear comes from all around the world: Canada, Denmark, Israel, Brazil, the U.K. and even the United States. Cordame, I Think You’re Awesome, Oran Etkin, Juliana Cortes, Polar Bear and Ed Palermo are  among those artists featured today.There are many different styles played this hour, but it’s all great –  I hope you enjoy.

My 2nd Podcast

Hello and welcome to the newest PB Podcast. Hope you enjoyed the first PB Podcast, and if you haven’t heard it yet, it should still be available on brennick.net. Today’s podcast doesn’t have any theme whatsoever – I started out with the first song (“Breakdown” by Alice Russell) after hearing an ad for the new season of Mad Men, then played whatever song I was thinking about while hearing the first song. The results are songs from the 1960’s through today.

I will say that the song by Asa – “Ok, Ok” reminds me of what is happening in Nigeria right now, with the kidnapped girls and Boko Harum. Very scary.
