This week's playlist focuses on the contribution of jazz musicians to pop, hip-hop, and rock projects, from the Art Ensemble Of Chicago playing with French singer Brigitte Fontaine, to John Zorn featured on the debut album by the Brazilian queen Marisa Monte and The Thing's mighty alliance with Neneh Cherry. And a tribute to the late Dr. Lonnie Smith, a jazz master known for his boundary-defying attitude.

Happy listening!
