"Eastern truth" - The David Joel Quartet (Spiral sky)

Not a bad show. It featured material from a lot of new CDs that I had just finished reviewing for the station. Some of these were the best tunes from poor/bad albums (e.g. "Mamo inn' by John Basile and "Chase" by Jerry Caringi - I likely won't be playing anything else from these, sorry), some of these were good tunes from good albums (e.g. "Mor feen" by Wilson/Lee/Bentley and "Des prunes" by Cote - I will be playing more from these records in the coming weeks). The "big long" piece for today was "Meditations" from the recently-discovered Charles Mingus Cornell 1964 concert. Good stuff!

And for those of you who know about this performance, I think I'll dig out Coltrane's "Om" and play it for the Christmas week show (which may well be Christmas Day). All of it. Be warned.
