July 16, 2018

Another show I was away for but ably hosted by Adam Mbowe (thanks again, Adam!) with an interesting bunch of tunes played.

I will be back for the Monday, July 23 program, 10-11 am MT, 90.9 FM,  I'll be playing a mix of new and old jazz but the main event will be a live performance by the Winnipeg band Apollo Suns! Should be great!  Please tune in for that and more!

July 9, 2018

After a week away (thanks to Linda Cunningham for filling in on July 2!), I was back doing that radio thing again today.  Like my last appearance, I decided to make this an "all-new" program. I featured a fairly wide variety of tracks; different styles, etc. The main thing here, though, was that I bookended the program with a couple of pieces from the new John Coltrane release, Both directions at once: the lost album. It's always good to play Coltrane and "new" Coltrane is a fine thing! I'm aiming to fit in at least one more offering from this release in the weeks to come.

I'm gone again for the next edition of BTT, which will be Monday, July 16, 10-11 am MT, 90.9 FM,  Adam Mbowe will be taking charge of the show that day. Please tune in!

I'll hosting again on July 23.  There may be a live performance that day... stay tuned for more info!

July 2, 2018

First show in July, guest-hosted by Linda Cunningham.  Looks like Linda went a fair ways across that musical map!  Many thanks to Linda for hosting in my absence.

I'll be back on air for the next program.  This'll be Monday, July 9, 10-11 am MT, 90.9 FM, I think I'll make this another all-new edition of BTT. After that, I'll be gone the next week, July 16 (Adam Mbowe will be filling in) and then back (for a while!) on July 23.

June 25, 2018

It's June 25 already... halfway through the year... sigh... but what's the alternative?!

Anyway, a good show today with a wide variety of styles presented. It also featured the most number of tracks played (12) in quite some time; normally, I play eight or nine per 60 minute program, occasionally one or two more.  I'm sure I've played more than 12 before but not for a long while.
Oh, and everything played today was newly-released.

I'm away for the next show, which will be on Monday, July 2, but Linda Cunningham will be filling in. Please join Linda from 10-11 am, 90.9 FM,  I'll be back for the July 9 program and then away again on July 16 (more on that later).

June 18, 2018

First show back after two weeks away. This was a good one, I thought, with a mix of old and new and of styles.  There was oddball jazz-funk (Steve Coleman and Five Elements), straight-ahead soul-jazz (Jerry Weldon), jazz quartet meets string quartet (Peter Madsen's Seven Sins Ensemble), and more.

The next Breaking The Tethers program will be on Monday, June 25, 10-11 am MT, 90.9 FM,  I might make this an all-new show; I've got quite the pile (literally and figuratively) of new music on deck that I want to share.

June 4, 2018

This was the first of two shows in June that I won't be hosting. This week's episode was hosted by John C. Reid, who focused on the artists that will be coming for the YYC Summer Jazz Festival 2018.  Many thanks, John!

As I type, Adam Mbowe is hosting the June 11 program (thanks, Adam!).  I'll post on this show later.

I'll be back on air next week, Monday, June 18, 10-11 am MT, 90.9 FM,  Please join me then!

May 28, 2018

Not too much to say here.  Mostly new material today.  It was nice to be able to play some Wayne Shorter ("Playground" from 1967's Schizophrenia); haven't done that in a while.

The next Breaking The Tethers show will be on Monday, June 4, usual time (10-11 am MT), usual place (90.9 FM,  But I won't be there!  I'm off the air that day and the following week, Monday, June 11.  John Reid will more than ably fill in on BTT next week (and Adam Mbowe will do the job on June 11).  Please join John for a great show!  I'll return on Monday, June 18.
