March 20, 2009

This was a showfill for the Friday morning program, Jazz Stains:

"Autumn solstice" - Rubim de Toledo (The river)
"Free jazz" - Ornette Coleman Double Quartet (Free jazz)
"Tico" - You Percussion Group (Sounds of ghetto youth)
"Boubacar" - McCoy Tyner with Bill Frisell (Guitars)
"Fisch tanz" - Petr Cancura (People music)
"Alexander the great" - Joe Lovano (Symphonica)
"Moment to moment" - Joe Locke Quartet (Moment to moment)
"Freedom tickler" - Charlie Hunter Trio (Friends seen and unseen)
"High-higher-her" - Jesse Van Ruller (Trio)
"Make up your mind" - Barry Romberg (Accidental beef)
"Felix major" - The Jeff Presslaff Trio (Red goddess)
"The theme" - Paul Chambers (Bass on top)
"Nataraj" - David S. Ware (Shakti)
"Pick up sticks" - Flow Trio (Rejuvenation)
"Signs & wonders" - Denny Zeitlin/David Friesen (Denny Zeitlin/David Friesen)

Two things to note here: First, believe it or not, this is the only time I've played Ornette Coleman's "Free jazz" on any CJSW show. I played the "First take" of "Free jazz" a couple of years ago but never the original release. Glad to be able to put it on air. Second, only 15 tracks were played today; there were a number of long tunes, including "Free jazz". This might be the fewest number of pieces played in a show I have hosted.

I'll be back on Tuesday with Breaking The Tethers.
