Episode 664 is coming from the sidewalk in front of the 420 Coffeeshop on the Singel canal in Amsterdam, just about my favorite spot in the known universe, and I’m playing music today just acquired from my friends Leslie Lopez, from his Puerto Rican music album Bomba Moderna; from my roommate this week at Tariq Khan’s studio in the Bijlmer visiting from Jamaica, Sheldon Senior, and his album Break Through; and from a fantastic collection called The Spinning Wheel Sessions put together by my friend Baba Israel with his own work and archival recordings of his late lamented father, Steven Ben Israel, a very good friend of mine for many years.
