Special Edition (playlist #167)

“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!
