A few interesting things about this show:

*This was the second edition of Breaking The Tethers to come from the new CJSW broadcast facilities.

*Everything played on the show was "new"; newly released, fairly recently released, recently re-released, etc. I do shows like this now and again and this was one of them, largely unplanned (until I realized that I had a big pile of "new" CDs).

*There were a number of African-sounding tunes on the program, including the Bela Fleck track and "Chan chan" by the Kora Jazz Trio (there's a great piano solo on this).

*Best title this week: "Kramer vs. Kramer vs. Godzilla" by Ben Allison.

Back in a week. Three more shows before my Christmas break.
