This week's program featured mostly solid, straight-ahead (ish) jazz from a variety of styles with a last half-hour of fairly avant-garde stuff. It was also the first time in a few months I've played less than 20 tracks in the show. My favourites of the lot include the Sam Rivers and Wayne Shorter pieces. It was also nice to see the new releases from the Cellar Live label in Vancouver (the Cory Weeds and Joel Haynes Trio + Seamus Blake tracks are from these CDs).
