"Hymn to Andromeda" - Chick Corea & John McLaughlin (Five peace band)
"Adeus america & eu quero um samba" -Luciana Souza (Tide)
"Lady be good" - Tchavolo Schmitt (Miri familia)
"Blue jug/Harold's blues" -The Peter Hand Big Band (The wizard of jazz: a tribute to Harold Arlen)
"Bell orange curves" - Joe Morris (Colorfield)
"Santiago" - Gordon Grdina's East Van Strings (The breathing of statues)
"Prince of orphans" - Brenan Brothers (The throw down)
"Take everything" - Kate Schutt (Telephone game)
"Hub-tones" - Freddie Hubbard (Without a song: live in Europe 1969)
"Opoczynski" - Ethnocity (Autumn dreams)
"Atoms of the heart" - Duology (Golden atoms)
"Shagu" - Mulatu Astatke (NewYork-Addis-London: The story of Ethio jazz 1965-1975)

"Yurugu" - In the tradition (The tradition continues!)
"Song not for you" - Vivian Houle (Trieze)
"Him or me" - The Terence Blanchard Group (Choices)
"Flyin' high (in the friendly sky)" - Dirty Dozen Brass Band (What's going on)
"Dibango" - Joe Lovano Us Five (Folk art)
"Drum line" - Donald Harrison (The chosen)
"Varmit" - Jason Adasiewicz's Rolldown (Varmit)

This was a show with a fairly wide and varied set of tunes and songs (there were four tracks with vocals; don't think I've done that before!). Perhaps my fave track this week was the totally whacked-out "Song not for you" by Vivian Houle. Gotta love freaky vocals and semi-grungy guitar.

Something to watch for: In about 3 or 4 shows, I will be playing the 4000th song on Breaking The Tethers. I'm not quite sure when this will happen but I will have a better idea as the time gets closer.
