A number of favourites appeared this week, including "Captain Marvel" by Chick Corea and Return to Forever (great, catchy vocal sections from Flora Purim), "Eight" by Ron Carter (wonderful use of a string section), and the incredible "Humus - the life-exploring force" by Don Cherry, which goes to some very interesting places. I also included some tracks which may or may not be jazz but they fit on Breaking the Tethers e.g. Twink's "Asleep in a snake basket", which features toy piano as the main instrument, and John Cale's trance-like "Song without words I".
