Playlist for the Unpopular Music Webcast for June 24, 2017

So this is the episode where I break one of the primary rules of programming Unpopular Music. It was a situation where I was looking for a track of a certain length of a certain character and it was a FM classic rock staple that ended up fitting the bill.



Otherwise, we have a wide ranging program featuring some of the tracks I felt didn't fit together two weeks ago, now joined by more compatible music. The jazz is somewhat front-loaded, the second hour is a bit string heavy, before acquiring a quasi-African vibe. More in the Unpopular Music tradition we have musicians from the jazz and early-music worlds jamming on common ground, a punk band with a jazz drummer sitting in playing an Ethiopian song, a jazz interpretation of a baroque aria, free-jazzers playing a hard bop classic, and more.

See the playlist after the break...
