A nice, varied show, featuring a number of tracks from CDs that I just pulled from the CJSW library. These included the Anderskov Accident, Iconoclast, and Anandan/Goldstein/Weins. I don't think I'd heard many of these before but I liked them.

"Sunflower" by Milt Jackson was a request. I actually received it last week but couldn't track down the recording until this week. The LP was in the CJSW library but I didn't find it until this week. Basically, it was starting me in the face. Sometimes I miss the obvious.

I just realized that I haven't posted the list for last week's show, July 21, 2009. Ooops. I should have that up later today.

First off, apologies for not posting this earlier but I've had a busy few days: a day-long meeting, medical appoints, a sick pet I had to take to and from the vet, etc.

The main thing this week was another focus on "new" music, though it wasn't a complete "new" show (I did one of those a few weeks back); there were some older, previously-released tunes. This was manifest in a way in the double-set of Abdullah Ibrahim that I played; one piece from 1976 ("Yukio khalifa") and the other from 2008 ("Blue bolero").

I ended up being away for the July 7 Breaking The Tethers (Philip Barker ably filled in - thanks to Philip!). I should be around for a while though I will miss one Tuesday in August. I'll definitely be behind the mic for July 21 and will also be filling in on July 20 program (the Jazz Baby show).
