Some notable things about this week's edition of Breaking The Tethers:
*Four tracks with vocals, including one in Norwegian (I think; this was the Sondre Lerche track). I don't think I've had that many in one show before. What is the world coming to.
*First appearance of the late Booker Little, on "Fire waltz" with Eric Dolphy. I'm surprised I've never played Booker Little before but he didn't appear on that many recordings in his short life.
*11 tracks were played in the first hour. Was this a record for 60 minutes? Maybe. The total for the program was 26, a tad higher than average but not the record for Breaking The Tethers (I've played in the range of 32 or 33).
This was my first show back after a week's break. Philip Barker from Morning Glory ably filled in for me. Many thanks to Philip. I'll be doing his September 3 show.
