"Reprise" - Adam Niewood & His Rabble Rousers (Epic journey)
"Relaxin'" - Willie "The Lion" Smith & Don Ewell (Stride piano duets: live in Toronto, 1966)
"One is the water" - Simon Fisk/Chris Gestrin/Jerry Granelli (Vague hotels)

"She has information" - Bobby Previte and the New Bump (Set the alarm for Monday)
"Stress talks" - Gone Fission (Phoenix)
"Right balance" - Maciek Grzywacz (Forces within)

This ended up being a more varied show than originally planned. Nothing wrong with that, though. I was also surprised that I managed to fit in 22 tunes, especially considering the first hour featured a lengthy tune (as have the past few shows), Anthony Braxton's "Composition no 345"; I didn't play even half of it, however (it goes on for nearly 70 minutes).

Fun tune of the day: The Hendrix cover, "If 6 was 9" by Don Byron, which incorporates the Turtles' "Happy together", believe it or not.

Guitar solo of the day: "Reprise" by Adam Niewood & His Rabble Rousers. The solo appears about half-way through the track. Good stuff. It reminds me of the guitar work on the Paul Motian Band record Garden of Eden.

Sax solo of the day: "Theme for Darfur" by Cosmologic. It pops up toward the end of the performance.

I'm doing a showfill on Pound Cake Jazz on Friday, August 15, 6-9 am. The regular programmer, Stewart, can't make the show so I'll be filling in. He'll be doing the same for me on September 30 (thanks, Stewart!). I'll still be back with a regular edition of Breaking The Tehters next Tuesday.
