Mike is from the Chicago-land area, Pat spent his salad days in Hyde Park—maybe the bastards are a bit biased, but they love talking about the Windy City. It doesn't hurt that it has a long, noble, somewhat left-of-center history concerning jazz. Anyway, this time they explore the work of a couple of tenor titans, little-known outside of the Midwest, along with an out-jazz supergroup and a jazz vocalist who is very well-known indeed. Quick look-ins at Father John Misty's latest and the "Esher" demos for the Beatles' "White Album" comprise pop-matters.
