Three albums by drummers highlight this episode. South Africa's Asher Gamedze's Dialectic Soul brings to light the freer, more avant side of contemporary South African jazz (perhaps in a way that the revered Louis Moholo-Moholo did over fifty years ago), while drummer Quin Kirchner's latest delves into various rhythms and tributes to favorite musicians. Tying it together with his usual free jazz style is Whit Dickey who drops two distinctly different albums, both with Matthew Shipp, one with Nate Wooley. Other interesting releases this show come from a pair of Toronto bands (Rob Clutton Trio and Eucalyptus), saxophonist Michael Thomas, Aram Shelton and Christian Rønn , and some exciting trios: Carsten Dahl, Ole Morten Vågan and Ivars Arutyunyan, Vance Provey with Bob Gorry and Paul Gunsberg, and Icepick featuring Nate Wooley.
