• Special Edition

    This week’s show took a deep dive into an album recorded forty years ago that sounds as fresh today as it did when it is released—Jack Dejohnette’s Special Edition. If you are not familiar with this album, go listen to it! Remarkable, challenging, and timeless music recorded impeccably, an ECM classic, that sparkles with energy, emotion, and power grooves. If you need a review to nudge you forward, check this one out. New releases were also in the mix this week (listen to Greg Ward’s fine new release) including several tracks from a fantastic fundraising project/album Chords for Kids. All this and more made up this week’s show. Checkout this week’s playlist to see what was played. Don’t forget that you can see what was featured on last week’s show, “amalgam” (by clicking here). This week’s show art is from ecm records and ecm records/Robert Masotti.

    As always, thanks for listening!

  • intersections

    The first hour of this week’s show took time to celebrate the work of legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius, who would have celebrated a birthday on December 1st. Several tracks from Weather Report’s eclectic Mr. Gone and Pat Metheny’s excellent Bright Size Life were the primary sources referenced for this week’s mini-musical celebration. The second hour kept things rolling along, crossing numerous sonic intersections (from some unexpected sources) weaving funk, fusion, electronic, and ambient sounds into the morning airwaves.

  • imaginary borders

    This week’s show musically moved over, within, and beyond many musical borders. Highlights included an extended set of fine new releases from the excellent ears & eyes record label and an absolute classic from the Can catalog. This and much more musical wandering filled the airwaves Tuesday.

    Don’t forget that you can see what was featured on last week’s show, “spaciousness” (by clicking here). This week’s artwork, “imaginary corners” is a detail of a larger altered/remixed video still by yours truly. You can view the full (short) video here.

    As always, thanks for listening!
