Since Sam Rivers passed on this week, The Changing Same is honoring him with a series of posts concerning this man's great genius and monumental impact on me as a musician and as a person. This little gem of a live show came to me courtesy of my super homie Jonathan Sindleman only yesterday. Now I share it with you, via Post Miles . Jonathan suggested I start with the last track, "Swirl." That was a great place to start; now I suggest you start by stopping by Post Miles and following the link to get you some.
jazz music in its entirety (according to Mikah Sykes): we play everything from its earliest forms at the turn of the century up through its current breathtaking renaissance - hence the name: THE CHANGING SAME. we focus on only the best sounds, the best musicians, the game-changing masters, and the influential figures that aren't household names (the latter of which are mostly all of the above, as well as mostly all we'll play), all of its sub-genres (eventually), and all of its best sounds you'll rarely hear anywhere else on the radio. the selections featured on this broadcast are not only some of the the highest forms of musical achievement, but also some of the most important musics the world has produced in the last 100 years. THE CHANGING SAME is particularly interested in the neurological effects of the spiritual aspects of jazz communication, it's role in civil rights, and it's contributions to the world of fine art and world peace. SPACE IS THE PLACE.
