|Three Day Weekend! Award Winning Jazz Radio! Large Ensembles Set On Stun!|
- I might be persnickety when it comes to Personal Inclinations In Music Selection but it was a full-on throw-down program of large groups, ensembles, big bands, and like that. On the one hand there was no Sun Ra or 8 Bold Souls or Creative Orchestra Music. On the other, Secret Society and New York Hieroglyphics and Box Canyon Overview. "It's all about texture" said Jared Gold after slaying us at Oliver Lake some years back.
- Lester Bowie. Enough said. Well, okay...Julius Hemphill, too. Very High Level.
- Sam Rivers swang at the conclusion and really wrapped it up.
Thanks for listening

|Straight to bullet points:|
- Did not know that Joey DeFrancesco plays trumpet. The new disc with Bobby Hutcherson and Billy Hart is sweet but my ears went 'wait, what?' Had to go to the liner notes. Did not know that.
- Viper's Drag makes me pine for Air Lore. Long time in between, less so if I had more time and attention span.
- Marc Cary surely must be in the running for top pianist. Not competitively or categorically, but thinking about unique voice and interaction and dynamic group chemistry...right up there, near the top.
Somebody asked me if I mean it when I say "Thanks for listening." Well, you know, of course I mean it. The whole show has been about intention and then at the end I'm gonna bs? No, I am not gonna. Thanks for listening!

|Initial impressions for three bullet point items regarding 8/14:|
- Ian Tordella made Stereolab sound like a genius. Pretty sure I said Radiohead on the show. Either way, Tragic Comedy is great.
- Still really like the Steve Wilson/Lewis Nash "Duologue." That's not going to change either, especially after Friday shift where Freedom Jazz Dance is solo drums. nice.
- Davis played by Archie Shepp on tenor sax and Buell Neidlinger on bass somehow makes me feel like Dali played by Coleman Hawkins. The sound is deep.
- Jeff Parker Trio is a shapeshifter, fitting anywhere as needed like the Index of Possibilities.
Thanks for listening...
|Rahsaan Roland Kirk gets the birthday spotlight feature and recognition for being very far out front and totally at ease with it. If he created only "Three For The Festival" his role would have been fulfilled. That line has a critical mass that will not be denied. As it is, there is more inspirational material for musicians and listeners alike. Elsewhere...|
- Steve Wilson / Lewis Nash "Duologue" goes straight onto my list of favorite duo recordings. Buster Bee, the Haden duos, Waldron/Lacy. Yeah, Duologue is on that list.
- In Between pretty much anticipates Dysnomia although it's easy to say that in retrospect. That's the only reason except also to mention that Dawn of Midi is returning to San Diego 9/20 at Carlsbad Music Festival. Dysnomia is actually dangerous when consumed live.
- Kirk closes with deception in the form of Untitled Blues and Lester Leaps In. Gotta watch your sacroiliac.
Thanks for listening
