In the meantime, here’s some more details about the show:

From Mexico City : Radio 21 Million
21 million people, 100 thousand taxis, a cold and often wicked politic, and a thriving but oft under-appreciated arts scene, Mexico City is alive and vibrant and emerging into the international creative music conscience. With Radio 21 Million, Mexico City based musician Todd Clouser (A Love Electric, Ropeadope Sur) highlights the creative music happening in his adopted hometown by visiting with its artists. Here, musicians become the programmers as we uncover a bit of Mexico City’s jazz past, its eclectic present, and its promise of a future as Latin America’s creative epicentre.

Episode 2
Episode 2 of Radio 21 Million comes with the embrace of the adventure we find in the word “jazz”. Understood, misunderstood, and the cause of emotion from our finest lust for inquisition to our deepest loathe of self indulgence, jazz is whatever anyone wants to make it. For that it is always ahead of what is new.

This episode features some of the more “avant” jazz that comes out of Mexico City, beginning with the group Klezmerson, signed to John Zorn’s Tzadik Records and recently releasing the record “Amon” as part of Zorn’s “Book of Angels” series. From there we celebrate a bit of RareNoise records, out of the UK, and their ties to Mexico City with the group Animation and Mexican pianist Roberto Verastegui and a track from the group MOLE, also a Rarenoise release. We visited with El Salvadoran guitarist and Mexico City resident, leader of XUC Trio, for some of his music and that of his influences, taking us to tracks from Mercedes Sosa, John Scofield, and Wes Montgomery. The young collective of Mexico City musicians “Colectivo Noon”, known for their programming of concerts in non-traditional spaces is represented by Miguel Alzerreka, Nur Slim and 1+.

We’re also featuring tracks from bands coming through Mexico City this next month, with Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet out of NYC and the Argentine saxophonist Luis Nacht each sharing a track.
