In the Reader‘s latest installment of In Rotation, Rabbit Factory Records honcho and East of Edens Soul Express DJ John Ciba chose as one of his three obsessions Swingin’ Snowflakes Jingle Jangle Jazz Party 2011 Christmas Mix, the latest in a series of collections of obscure holiday music assembled for friends by Jam’s Andy Cirzan. I second Ciba’s recommendation—Cirzan’s mixes, with their collisions of weirdness and sincerity, are always a blast, and he’s a passionate music fan with wide ears who covers plenty of stylistic turf (though this year’s effort is all jazz). This is a guy who, while working at Ravinia, booked the Art Ensemble of Chicago to open for Wynton Marsalis, and who set up what might turn out to be Anthony Braxton’s final Chicago-area performance back in 1989. He also brought John Zorn’s quartet Masada to Chicago for the first time for a knockout show at Schubas in 1993. You can hear Cirzan tonight, along with fellow holiday-music enthusiast John Soss, as guests on WXRT‘s Electric Company from 10 PM-midnight. Cirzan will also appear on this weekend’s Sound Opinions, and on Thu 12/22 both Cirzan and Soss will host a holiday-music program on WDCB from 7 to 9 PM.
