This week we focus on avant-garde bassist Joe Fonda. We recently interviewed Joe, who has a new release with the OGJB Quartet along with a duo recording with pianist Satoko Fujii. We also feature the music of Wadada Leo Smith and move our way into a bright young cat with fresh grooves, Nikola Bankov. Legendary saxophonist Benny Golson came through Kansas City in mid-October 2019 and we got plenty from him during this hour. Finally, we catch up with a friend of Neon Jazz with a new anthem to Art Blakey by the great guitarist Joshua Breakstone.
