This was mostly a regular kind of show. I played some new tunes, some older ones, in a variety of styles (fave track: "Part 2" by Harris Eisenstadt); it was much like last week. On the other hand, it wasn't a regular kind of show. For the first time in at least a year, I did a phone interview! This was with musician, composer, bandleader, etc Nick Fraser (who has been featured on Breaking The Tethers a number of times over the years). Nick called in from Toronto (where he was in the studio) mid-show to talk about the concert he's giving at the King Eddy with Kris Davis and Tony Malaby on Saturday, June 17, 9:30 pm, part of the JazzYYC Summer Festival. It was nice to talk with Nick and to be able to promote the concert and the festival.
The next edition of Breaking The Tethers will be Monday, June 19, 10-11 am MT, 90.9 FM, www.cjsw.com.
