KCRW chose percussionist Joachim Cooder’s smooth jam, Sade-inspired collaboration with brother-in-law Robert Francis for Today’s Top Tune. Listen here: http://bit.ly/GDuT26
The track comes from Cooder’s new LP, ‘Love on a Real Train,’ which KCRW calls “a thoughtful cycle of songs inspired by the view from his Echo Park studio at sunset.” Featuring musicians Inara George, Petra Haden, Juliette Commagere, Matt Costa, Jon Hassell, and Frank Lyon, this is Cooder’s debut as a bandleader.

“These are love songs mostly,” says Cooder, “but what I love about them is that they are imaginary and abstract and somewhat internal. Since everything is so in your face these days, we've lost the mystery that is so important and that’s what I’m always striving for.”
‘Love on a Real Train’ is out April 3rd on Aeronaut Records.
