The Dutch powerhouse quintet Spinifex included a pair of tracks imbued with Sufi traditional music of Kurdish/Iranian origin, and a Qawali traditional from Pakistan on their last recording, Amphibian Ardour; they loved the challenge of fusing those styles into their irregular structures and free jazz so much that they decided to go all in on their newest release, Soufifex. There's always challenging music on releases from the Relative Pitch label, and this episode brings music from new albums by Ingrid Laubrock and Tom Rainey, Fish Scale Sunrise which features saxophonist Ab Baars and the duo of cellist Tomeka Reid and percussionist Filippo Monico. You'll also hear new tunes from guitarists Ben Monder and Maurizio Brunod, and more from the selected recording for Black History Month, Dr. Mark Lomax, II's 400: An Afrikan Epic.
