This was an interesting show for a few reasons. There was a wide variety of styles of music played (including two gypsy jazz pieces; how often has this happened on Breaking The Tethers??) and there were a few more tracks played than usual; 26 instead of the regular 22-24 (I've gone higher, over 30, but not for a long while). Who knows what next week will bring.

Faves this week: "25th Street" by Hebden and Reid, "Rolling Son" by MMW, and "A prayer for my family" by Tyner. I also very much liked the Ted Sirota and Rob Mosher tunes.
