Not a bad little show. I managed to make it through OK with the remnants of a very bad cold. My faves from this week: "Billy duck" by Crispell and Hemingway (I've just discovered Marilyn Crispell), Shipp's version of "Summertime" (I know this almost overwhelmed at least one person who was listening to the show), "Les nuits de Monsieur Naj" by Truffaz, and "Rocket #9" by Hugh Marsh (gotta love a Sun Ra cover!).

I won't be doing Breaking The Tethers next week (November 27). Philip Barker from Morning Joy will be more than ably taking my spot. I'll be back for the December 4 show.
