Paris DJs Soundsystem - Who Is Molesting Laura ? (part 5)
(MP3 Podcast on 2009-05-06

This is not your usual Molesting Laura mix. Of course, it's all covers, some easy to recognize, some others not that obvious... That's because we've been specially digging in our vaults of American modern jazz. The kind of your never hear about over the Atlantic. The trip will take you from downtown New York (Medeski Martin and Wood) to New Orleans (Dirty Dozen Brass Band), from Brooklyn (Marco Benevento) to Tulsa (Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey), from San Diego (The Greyboy Allstars) to Bridgeport (Fuzz), back to Brooklyn (Soulive), and from Harlem (The Harlem Experiment) to San Francisco (Garaj Mahal)...

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band track is taken from their album produced by John Medeski, Buck Jump - New Orleans down home funky jazz at its best. The Marco Benevento one is from his 2009 album Me Not Me, an incredible set of covers done piano trio with sculpted sounds - with bassist Reed Mathis and drummers Matt Chamberlain and Andrew Barr, two of them being members of The Slip. Long-time readers will recognize them... Also, don't pass out on another piano trio, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, really mind-blowing. We've played a track from their latest album, Winterwood, which you can download for free on their site! Finally, this mix is an opportunity to talk about the Harlem Experiment album released on Ropeadope in 2007. It's just a monster album with the cream of NY uptown jazz musicians, fusing jazz, klezmer, salsa, soul, hip-hop and funk. One of the best new thing! we've heard this century.
