This was the first edition of Breaking The Tethers in its new day and time, Monday mornings, 10 am to noon. It also featured a change in style, from 100% jazz or jazz-like music to about a third jazz and a mess of other stuff. Some fave tracks this week:

"Attaining" by John Coltrane - Anything by 'Trane is good.
"The eye-witness" by The Habibiyya - UK rock band goes for Sufism. Nice trance stuff.
"Nite prowler" by the Deuce Coupes - Hard-edged surf music.
"Tryin' not to pull my gun" by Burnside & Malcolm - Good advice?
"Shoeshine blues" by Thee American Revolution - I always dig some straight-ahead fuzztone rock.
"30 piece band" by Ellen McIlwaine - Some wild guitar and interesting singing here.
"Paris part IV" by Keith Jarrett - He's controversial but his solo piano is mesmerizing.
"Seka knows" by Grant Hart - I loved Husker Du but I don't know much about Hart's post-Du career (I've heard more solo Bob Mould). I liked this song.

I should also note that "Saturn noises" is a track of sounds reportedly recorded by a probe as it descended into the atmosphere of the planet Saturn.
