Playing tracks by
Norah Jones, Robert Palmer, Chet Baker, Betty Carter, Tuck & Patti and more.
First compiled in the mid-90s, via vinyl and CD, as one did then, this session was one I was eager to remake in MixMeister when that opportunity came along. Sound handling in the early versions of MM was unkind to organic instruments, so when the software improved, another redo was in order, and this time I brought in a few newer selections as well.
I had the chance to share "Adulthood Redux" with ThirdPower recently, and at his urging, I'm finally adding it to the BeatConscious stream (and also because this August is turning out to be all about catching up on new music, listening but not mixing at the moment....)
So grab your drink of choice and turn the lights down low -- here we have a few of the more distinctive voices of our time putting their stylist stamp on jazz standards of infatuation, obsession, and heartbreak.
