Because we were short on ideas, we decided to steal an idea from Daze past. And so we bring you Professor Playlist — a reoccurring mini-feature that will let you know what music your professors are listening to, when they aren’t edumucating. First up: Professor Barry Maxwell, senior lecturer in Comparative Literature and American Studies, shared some of his favorite songs with us:

Mississippi Fred McDowell, “Shake ’Em On Down”
Louis Armstrong, “Tight Like That”
Fletcher Henderson, “Chinatown, My Chinatown”
Sun Ra, “Priest”
Thelonious Monk, “Solitude,” “Crepuscule with Nellie” (and everything else)
Archie Shepp and Jeanne Lee, “Blase”
The Art Ensemble of Chicago with Fontella Bass, “Theme de YoYo”
Roscoe Mitchell, “Song for My Sister”
Dick and Deedee, “The Mountain’s High”
Barbara Lynn, “You’ll Lose a Good Thing”
Baby Lloyd, “There is Something On Your Mind”
James Brown, “There Was a Time”
Chaka Khan and Rufus, “Tell Me Something Good”
Guru, “Sights in the City”
Olu Dara, “Your Lips”
Kev Brown, “Albany” (thanks, Wynn)
