In the days prior to this edition of Breaking The Tethers, a large number of new jazz CDs and new CDs that lean in a jazz direction crossed my path. Most fit the BTT style so I gave them a whirl in this show. It was probably the most jazz-focused program since BTT left the jazz-only format. A few other items slipped in (Johnny Cash singing in German, Steve Earle, etc.) but it definitely had a jazz bent. As always, next week will be different, maybe way different.

I am late with posting the playlist for the June 6, 2011 program. My apologies. But I should have it on the blog later today.
