This week we're dispensing with our usual programming to bring you a special edition re-broadcast of a documentary about the making of Weekend Justice. If you've ever wanted to peek behind the curtain, here's your chance. Regular show returns next week. Enjoy!
It's a new compilation from Sony Masterworks Jazz: Jazz Roots: Music of the Americas. It's coming out April 5th. Here's what they have to say for themselves:
JAZZ ROOTS: The Music of the Americas 2-CD compilation chronologically covers the history of jazz from Ragtime and Early Blues to Today. Some of the featured artists include: Scott Joplin and Louis Armstrong (Early Jazz & Blues); Benny Goodman and Duke Ellington (Swing & Big Bands); Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald (Vocalists); Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie (Bebop); Machito and Tito Puente (Afro-Cuban); Dave Brubeck (Cool Jazz); John Coltrane and Miles Davis (Hard Bop / Modal); Antonio Carlos Jobim and Elaine Elias (Brazilian); Weather Report (Fusion); Herbie Hancock (Funk); Wynton Marsalis (The Young Lions); George Benson and Grover Washington Jr. (Contemporary); Kenny G (Smooth); Chris Botti and Eldar (Today). These artists and their key music tracks are included in the package, as well as historic overviews and artist bios, plus links to the Quincy Jones American Popular Music Curriculum and JAZZ ROOTS web sites for additional information.
As discussed elsewhere (both on podcast and Music Monday), REM's got a new album out. Our friends at EMI are using this opportunity to promote their compilation, And I Feel Fine... The Best Of The I.R.S. Years 1982-1987. As they've told us, 'The album packs 21 classic singles, including "It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)", "The One I Love" & "Radio Free Europe."'

Well, as you know, on this site if it's undead and bleeds, it leads. And that counts double for one of the most seminal short subject zombie films of our time: the extended music video of "Thriller." Combine that with an EC Comics-inspired layout and you've got the Zombie Thriller shirt from Tshirt Bordello. And it's gold, folks.
We've got an XL version to give away...want to win it? Excellent. Here's how you do that: enter using the form below. And remember you can enter once a day. If we draw your name when the contest ends, you snag it. Good luck!
More music picks for your Monday curated by music minister, Rob Levy. I, Widge, am just the messenger. If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like more bandwidth. And also so we can buy more music.
Coming out from Image Entertanment, it's Kenny Chesney Summer in 3D. Here's what they have to say for themselves:
Directed by Joe Thomas, Kenny Chesney Summer in 3D captures his unparalleled live performances filmed over 6 nights. The video was shot from onstage, the front row, the wings and even the Goodyear blimp, and also includes extensive and rare archival footage, behind-the-scenes moments and photographs held together by Chesney's own narrative. It takes the viewer inside the life, the loves, and the soulful foundation of his remarkable success.
It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck. It's the podcast that spends far too much time discussing alcohol and sex. And far too little time discussing sex and alcohol. This podcast was engineered--some might say over-engineered--by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.
