This was the CJSW Listener Appreciation Week (http://cjsw.com/listener/) show for Breaking The Tethers. I thought I would do something just a little bit different and do a mini-focus on the Impulse! label (the one with the orange spines!). Over the years, I've played a great deal of music from this label and, admittedly, it's one of my favourites; if I see something from Impulse!, at the least, I can assume that it's pretty good and it might even be great. The tracks I played today were largely from the heyday of the label, the '60s, with one from the '70s and another from just 2015. Most were on the freakier side of what Impulse! produced; that being said, Impulse! was often seen as a free jazz label but they put out a fairly wide variety of jazz (and other musical styles). Next week (Monday, May 1, 10-11 am MT), it'll be back to usual though I might end up doing an all-new-material show.
As this is Listener Appreciation Week, I want to send out my thanks to everyone who listens to Breaking The Tethers (and other CJSW shows), goes to the BTT page on the CJSW site (http://cjsw.com/program/breaking-the-tethers/), and checks out this blog. Simply, all of these are appreciated!
