"Chiquilin de bachin" - Bobo Stenson Trio (Cantando)

"Saturn 5" - Tribal tech (Rocket science)
"Leo Leo" - Bess Drury (Artic)
"Halfway there" - Pat Collins Quartet (In the moment)
"Passion dance" - McCoy Tyner with Marc Ribot (Guitars)
"Woodstock" - Leora Cashe and the Ross Taggart Trio (Another side now)
"Side effects may include" - Gutbucket (A modest proposal)
"Out jam/via mwandishi" - Christian McBride (Live at Tonic)
"Living room" - The Tom Warrington Trio (The mountain)
"W.W.T.W.D." - The Gordon Grdina Trio (… if accident will)
"Santa Anna" - James Cohen (High side of lowdown)

This show featured loads of guitar (not deliberate, just kinda turned out that way), plenty of electric piano (again, not deliberate) and FOUR tracks with singing! (actually, there are vocalizations on the Dr. Lonnie Smith tune as well) What on earth am I doing? :-) I used to go weeks on end without playing any tracks with vocals. Things change, I guess.

Two other things: I was pleased to get the new McCoy Tyner CD in my hands. It came out late last year so it's been a while but it's still fresh to me and most listeners (I hope). The lengthy live version of "So what" from Miles Davis was good to hear too. There's nice work from Coltrane on this performance (I know, what else would you expect).

I'll be doing the Friday, March 20 edition of Jazz Stains on CJSW, 6-9 am, so feel free to listen in then. After that, it's back to Breaking The Tethers on Tuesday, March 24.
