Compiling a radio playlist is both incredibly satisfying and quite frustrating. Two hours are so quick to fill and one has to often leave out a great number of tracks that would deserve attention but, for a reason or another (length, similarities to other selection, need for variety and flow etc.), don't find a natural spot in the playlist... To partially remedy this situation, we are starting a 'companion mixtape' series to share more great music, in addition to that which is included in our regular show.

Enjoy these additional cuts, written or performed by, and featuring, Kenny Kirkland, which showcase his remarkable skills as composer, leader, sideman and accompanist (check out his work with Carmen Lundy!) in both straight-ahead and fusion projects.
