All Time 12

My man Julian over at playjazzloud just threw down the motherfucking gauntlet.  Not only did he answer my cocktail party conversation starter, he went the extra mile and put it out there for all to hear.  His post, Twelve 12s, attempts to create a list of ten songs that define him as a person and fails incredibly.  I say fail only because he goes two songs over my ridiculously restrictive limit, but who’s going to complain about The Brand New Heavies and The Beatles?  I’ve listened to it twice, and it’s a hell of a mix.  It’s also a testament to the global power of music.  The 12 songs that this British/Chinese bloke selected includes a track from my favorite Miles Davis album, a De La Soul feel-good anthem,  and my second favorite Fela Kuti song. Go check it out.
