Anthony Valadez (@anthonyvaladez) of KCRW brings us new music, much of it jazz infused. He tells Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson about a number of artists he’s been listening to, including Japan-born Takuya Kuroda, who now lives in Brooklyn. We also hear some Brooklyn-Brazilian fusion.

Note: We have a Spotify playlist and an Apple Music playlist for our weekly DJ Sessions.
