8 from 1988 – Playlist Online!

Take a step into the past with these eight tracks from contemporary jazz releases that came out in the year 1988! Hear music from Kim Pensyl’s first series of sketches, Al Jarreau feeling so good, David Benoit taking every step along the way, and David Sanborn missing someone so far away. It’s one of a number of mixes I hope to be putting up on 8tracks in the future.

In the last few weeks, I’ve added new music from a number of artists I just learned about. Glam Sam and His Combo’s recording is called Groovy and Sam says it’s “cool music. Just cool and funky, with a twist of jazz.” It’s that twist that got my ear. I’ve got two cuts from it playing now. Hit up the MySpace page. You’ll also hear music from recent releases by Miles Bonny, Mocean Worker, and South Froggies. I’ve put my favorite Bob James cover back into rotation – Masters at Work’s “Nautilus (MAWtilus)” from the excellent Nuyorican Soul disc.
