Mike thinks "basserageous" is the stupidest title for the podcast yet, but is it, really? There's a lot of competition. Anyway, this fortnight's gem looks at ECM albums where the bass is large and in charge, which provides opportunities to talk about ECM's aesthetics, how technological changes in the seventies allowed bass players new prominence, and Pat Metheny's hair. Mostly Pat Metheny's hair.
