I have to admit, I really liked this show, favourites galore, new and old. I'm particularly fond of the pairing of Soft Machine and Lee Morgan, two of my main likes. Looking at the Soft Machine track in particular, I hadn't heard either their Fourth or Fifth albums until recently and was not sure if they would hold up to the great Third record; they aren't quite as good as Third but they are better than I expected so I played one track on Breaking The Tethers today.
