Playlist- Prana 2 Music, 12/3/10

I’m especially proud of this last playlist- but not for anything I did.  The first two cuts, featuring friends Vijay Iyer and Darcy James Argue, are celebrating the fact that they are both nominated for Grammys!  Vijay (who honestly is more of an acquaintance) is a spectacular pianist, and his trio album “Historiocity” deservedly made most jazz top 10 lists last year, and got a nomination for best album by a jazz group.  I mentioned Darcy in the post about feedback, and he and the band are nominated for best large group album.  The rest was just fun- I’ve been singing “Wanna Be…” all week for some reason.  Maybe I do!
