Plenty of interesting stuff in this week's episode, including the great groove of "Rose rouge" by St. Germain, the great piano work of Brad Mehldau ("Wonderwall"), and the free-jazz freak-out of the Brotherhood of Breath's "The bride". Looking at the last of these, this comes from the first official release (I think) of a Nov. 4, 1971 concert in Berlin. I played the first half of this concert from a not-so-legal recording last September but it's nice to hear a legit outing of this performance.
