"Nowhere" - Michael Gibbs (Lancaster University 1969)
"Reflections" - Dean McNeill (Prairie fire: large jazz ensemble)

This was an enjoyable show, at least from my perspective. Plenty of new "out there" jazz and more good stuff. My favourties this week include "Platypus" from the new Ben Allison release, "Chasing the ghost" by the Darius Jones Trio, and the totally crazy "Mahkota kotor window" by Arrington de Dionyso.

Also, I think this might have been the last edition of Breaking The Tethers in the old CJSW studio space. As has been mentioned, the station is definitely moving and is moving now. Walls are bare, the library is being emptied, and furniture is disappearing. We could be broadcasting out of the new space, on the 3rd floor of MacEwan Hall (the CJSW studio and offices are in the basement at present) within a matter of days. For more info, see the CJSW expansion blog; there's lots of photos and videos that give a good idea of what the new digs will look like.
