This week’s show had some excellent new music from The Whitest Boy Alive, Little Dragon, Boozoo Bajou and Rosalia de Souza, as well as some straight-up classics from Joao Gilberto and Marcos Valle. But the happiness was also mixed with sadness about the passing of Curtis Jones, who died this week.
Those who knew Curtis know that he was a truly unique person, and the world is a poorer place without him in it. On the other hand, the next dimension is probably a lot more fun and strange now. I wracked my brain trying to figure out a song to play, and, recalling his “Carnival of Sensuality” performances, I figured the best thing to play was Celia Cruz’s “La Vida es un Carnaval” (Life is a Carnival).
The entire setlist is here as a Google spreadsheet.
