Pink Squirrel - Episode 10
Welcome to Episode 10 of Pink Squirrel.
This mixtape series is dedicated to sharing some of the great music released in 2018.
This final episode has a distinct vibe that - while sitting at the intersection of soul, rhythm & blues, and jazz - is as diverse as any mix in the series, in that you will also hear country, alternative, and disco in the mix.
Its cohesiveness is a testament to the direction that music has headed this decade, with genre lines blurred and people consuming broader spectrums of tunes.
I also dig how, in a mix that sounds fresh and new, you have musical icons - like Willie Nelson, Van Morrison, Elvis Costello, Neneh Cherry, and Miranda Lambert - all doing their thing.
I am particularly fond of the closing track, Love Having You Around, where the Late Nite Tuff Guy reworks First Choice's late 70s cover of the Stevie Wonder track.
Au revoir, Pink Squirrel. It has been a fun year.
