Dr. Thomas Stanley joined us to discuss his new book The Execution of Sun Ra and Dr. Anyabwile Love was with us to discuss his doctoral research on John Coltrane. Among other things we discussed the fraudulence of the genre “jazz,” the depth and breadth of African music and cultural expression, intergalactic thought and spirituality, as well as, the continuities between “jazz” (or what Tom Porter more accurately refers to as “African American Classical Music“) and hip-hop. All this and much more on this week’s iMiXWHATiLiKE!*
