JAZZIZ Editors’ Choice: Sun Ra Arkestra, Connie Han, Norah Jones & More (PLAYLIST)

The editors of JAZZIZ have the good fortune of being able to listen to new music before it’s officially released in stores and streaming platforms. And because we’re always listening to new tunes, we always know just what to recommend. That’s why we’ll bring you a roundup of ten songs each Monday, featuring music from our favorite new albums, singles and other tunes that may have flown under your radar. And, for good measure, we’ll be throwing in some “golden oldies” as well…

This week’s podcast opens and closes with music from Sun Ra Arkestra’s new album, Living Sky, which will be released on October 7. We’ve also got a Ruth B. song from the soundtrack of Netflix’s upcoming original film, A Jazzman’s Blues and offer a taste of Rob Silverman’s new fusion release, Drumology, Volume II. Following, new music from Snarky Puppy’s love letter to their Dallas spiritual home and Butcher Brown’s upcoming full big band album.

We also celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Robert Glasper Experiment’s Black Radio and include new music by singer/songwriter Beth Orton, featuring Alabaster dePlume, Tom Skinner, Shahzad Ismaily and Tom Herbert. Next is a striking Norah Jones reimagination of a Leonard Cohen composition and Connie Han, showcasing her unique pianistic voice on a track from her upcoming new visionary album, Secrets of Inanna. You can also click here to listen to our recent podcast interview with Han.
