An intergenerational, eclectic playlist vision, the Monolith Cocktail Social is the blog’s imaginary radio show; a smattering of music from my personal collection, my DJ sets and a lot of music I just wish I owned. Devoid of themes, restraints, or trends, expect to hear anything and everything; including some tributes to album that celebrate their 50th and 20th anniversaries this month: From Joni Mitchell’s ’71 songbook both the original ‘Carey’ and a unique version of ‘This Flight Tonight’ by Art d’Ecco, plus ‘I Might Be Wrong’ from Radiohead’s emphatic distress, Amnesiac.  We also have an eclectic set that features troubadours aplenty (from Larry Jon Wilson to Jon Tabakin); Afro-Rumba saunters (Amadou Balaké); the class of Hip-Hop’s golden age (The Real Roxanne, King Sun); adroit electronic music composers (Moebius, Tomat, Madegg); and much, much, more.
