Playing tracks by
Grant Green, Horace Silver, The Sahib Shihab Quartet, The Dave Brubek Quartet, Chico Hamilton and more.
I recorded this about ten days ago to play at a party we threw to celebrate the birth of our daughter Blanca. As of now, the only people to have heard this mix were those in attendance.
I included a bunch of Blue Note stuff, some very nice Japanese imports, a handful of Jose James collaborations, a Carlos Nino J-Dilla cover, and lots of love. I hope you enjoy it.

I don't think Blanca will mind if I share her mix with the Mixcloud community on its one-year birthday. The site became--within a few months of its launch--my principal spot for listening to and sharing mixes, and I expect great things from the site and the people who upload here in the years to come.
Happy Birthday Blanca. Happy Birthday Mixcloud.
