Professor’s Playlist: Tyler Dorholt

This week, we’re back with Professor’s Playlist, and this time, I interviewed Professor Tyler Dorholt, a brand new professor to Le Moyne. He’s lived all over New York and has compiled a lot of interesting music along the way.

Are there any new artists you’ve found lately that have really caught your attention?

I’ve lived in many cities the last few years and because of this I haven’t found the stability or rhythm to dial into the local radios or scenes. Though I dig a lot of random songs I hear, I often define the discovery of something “new” to be what I learn in listening to old jazz records. I have a fairly decent vinyl collection and when I hear a musician in a group, whether it’s the bass or drums or a horn, and I’m intrigued, I find out who that artist is, track down other recordings they’ve played on, and bring that home as something new. To be fair to your question though, one new album I really liked this year was Lost in a Dream by the band War on Drugs.

As the seasons change, do you tend to listen to a certain artist/band more?

I do in fact lean a certain listening way in relation to the seasons. In the spring I tend to listen to bands like M83 and Beck. In the summer I listen to older hip hop, blues, and collections like Golden Afrique. In the fall I listen to artists like Django Reinhardt,Yo la Tengo, Broken Social Scene, and Joanna Newsom. In the winter I’m bunkered into more jazz and vinyl.

What are your top 5 favorite songs at the moment?

Spoon’s “Inside Out;” Marley Marl’s “The Symphony Pt.II;” Sharon Van Etten’s “Taking Chances;” The Fatback Band’s “Do the Bus Stop;” Ben Webster’s “In a Mellow Tone.”

What was the last album/CD you bought?

A record by The Art Pepper Quartet.

Have you seen any artists/bands live lately? If so, how was it?

I saw a Rebirth Brass Band show in New Orleans a little while ago and that was a lively splash. And then about two months ago, I wandered into a place called Wally’s Cafe, a jazz club in Boston, and saw some young, but remarkably talented musicians from the area. They were wailing away, but with poise.

We’re getting closer and closer to Halloween. Do you have a festive playlist set up for this time of year?

I just got married this October and I insisted that my wife and I make our own playlist, for the cocktail, dinner, and dance sessions. Because I poured so much time into this I have the entire list imprinted in my mind and will probably play this list through autumn. It’s a mix of Motown, sprinkled hits by classic artists like Prince, the Rolling Stones and Sam Cooke, and a range of nostalgic wonders by groups like LCD Soundsystem, Traveling Wilbury’s, The Clash, The Sonics, and Kurtis Blow.

What is your all time favorite album?

Does anyone ever get by with just one? Bob Dylan’s Bringing it All Back Home and Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, with many second places.
