Another set inspired by luminary labels. This time around we explore the dub side of the groove, as pioneered by Channel One and Studio One. Spanning 4 decades of jazzy-dub, the set starts off in a traditional 70's style dub and gets more progressive with each selection. Smoke out and dub down.

Femme Fatale

Wed, 31 October 2007 00:45:00 PST

A celebration of women bending their corners. Yes, this is a spotlight on female groovers, but its so much more... These are more than just females singing in a male band. These are tunes where the woman is front and center as the leader, the creator, the artist, the name-sake. And, though there are a number of the typical names you'll find on a "women of" collection, this set showcases the groovie bent side of the available material.

Modern Architecture

Sat, 28 July 2007 00:42:00 PST

Rummaging through the archives, we pullout a modern jazz groove set spun live, in the field, and on the fly.

Where as part one focused on classic architectural atmospheres, this set shines light on the more modern scene.

BabyCorners, Hush

Sat, 30 June 2007 00:41:00 PST

Got an infant or toddler and are tired of cheesy new age baby lullaibies? Get hip, and try out this mix on your little one.

Straight-Ahead, Turn Left

Tue, 06 Mar 2007 00:38:00 PST

"Straight-Ahead" jazz on BendingCorners? Yes, you heard that right. But don't worry, this ain't your standard straight fare. This is BendingCorners after all. Its straight, with a twist; shaken, not stirred. Straight jazz with bent corners.

Alice in Wonderland (Alice Coltrane Tribute)

Sun, 04 Feb 2007 00:37:00 PST

BendingCorners tribute to the late great Alice Coltrane. On January 12th 2007 the jazz world lost another of its pioneers. Alice was a seminal player in the Kozmigroov spiritual scene and this is BC's take on her more mellow and moving material. Spark a J, relax, and float down stream.


Mon, 15 Jan 2007 00:36:00 PST

Music fit for winter weather, this set explores the systemic, angular, and calculating side of jazz-n-groove; prefect for those long, dark, and frigid winter nights gazing up at the crystal clear sparkling stars.

Mr. Dynamite (James Brown Tribute)

Sun, 31 Dec 2006 00:35:00 PST

The soulfather's body may be gone, but his music remains with us forever. And so thankful (for his music) we are! Like so many others, here is BC's take on the "James Brown Tribute", with an attempt to spotlight some of his more "jazzy" numbers. These aren't the most popular or well-known of his tunes, but they definitely got the groove! Pappa's bag has popped. Peace to you, brutha. RIP.

Continental Beats

Sat, 30 Sep 2006 00:32:00 PST

A beat heavy set, where we explore the "infinite beat" of drums, bass, and percussion focused grooves from all six of the inhabitable continents.

So Full

Mon, 28 Aug 2006 00:31:00 PST

Continuing from last month's instrumental soul journey, this month the vocals take the stage. The many sides of "soul" are explored here. Jazz, soul, funk, disco, hip-hop, drum-n-bass, downtempo, house, folk, future, and nu are all represented. Soulful grooves indeed.

Soul Jazz

Fri, 28 Jul 2006 00:30:00 PST

Not so much "soul-jazz" per say, as more jazz with soul, or rather the soul of jazz. Unifying and uplifting, its an instrumental excursion of groove(food) for your soul.


Thu, 29 Jun 2006 00:29:00 PST

A celebration of summer thats all over the musical map. There is a little something for everyone in this mix. From classic to modern with elements of jazz, soul, spirit, disco, house, latin, bossa, nu, and downtempo, these grooves all have an uplifting summertime vibe.

Medium Rare

Tue, 30 May 2006 00:28:00 PST

Jazzatronic 2005

Sat, 29 Apr 2006 00:27:00 PST

BendingCorner's annual set of the past year's finest "jazzatronic" tunes. A collection of jazz-based electronically-influenced groovers with modern production techniques.


Thu, 30 Mar 2006 00:26:00 PST

As a follow up to JazzDJ's Fusion set, BendingCorners brings you Fission, a showcase of grinding guitars and squelchy synths. Presented here in roughly chronological order we follow the progression of "fusion jazz" from beautiful guitars in the late 1960's, to fast and furious jamming in the early 70's, to heavy synth work in the mid/late 70's (capped on both ends by Miroslav Vitous).


Thu, 24 Feb 2006 00:25:00 PST

Sweet, succulent, and slightly seductive, this set explores the lush and lovely side of jazz-n-groove.

Classic Architecture

Thu, 30 Jan 2006 00:24:00 PST

Classic cosmic jazz groove spun live, in the field, and on the fly. This is part one of a two part set in which BendingCorners provided the musical atmosphere for an architectural art show.


Thu, 22 Dec 2005 00:23:00 PST

Acknowledging the arrival of winter, this set explores the jazz scene of Scandinavia, where the winters are cold, dark, and gloomy, yet the jazz is blinding white hot. From 1972 to 2005, from Finland to Norway and Sweden, we travel the many styles and genres of scandinavian jazz.

Sonic Jazz Trek

Wed, 23 Nov 2005 00:22:00 PST

Another set in BC's ongoing series of kozmigroov explorations. A sonic trek through the space of cosmic jazz groove.


Tue, 12 Oct 2005 00:21:00 PST

A vibrating trip through the land of echoes, reverbs, dubs, and askew wobbles. Spanning genres of jazz, future jazz, out rock, dub, afro-beat, and downtempo grooves, these sounds are indeed bending.

Spirits Within

Sun, 11 Sep 2005 00:20:00 PST

As a shout out to our musical brothers at Quincy Essential, this one digs into the spiritual side of the groove. The Spirit is inside everyone of us, however we all experience and express it differently. The musicians in this set express their spirits uniquely as well. From modal moments and divine grooves to wailing saxes and soaring gospels, the spirit is definitely within. (practice tolerance)
