Contrasting alto saxophonists highlight this episode. Toronto's Brodie West leads his quintet through a quirky and edgy set of tunes from Clips, while Sweden's Anna Hogberg leads a very free blowing group called Attack, and that's exactly what she does on her recent Lena. Another saxophonist, American Seth Trachy, brought along his mentor, the very respected Miguel Zenon for his new album which uses African Pygmy rhythms as the basis for his compositions. You'll also hear a couple of great Finnish bands, recorded live in concert, and the veteran keyboardist from England, Veryan Weston drops a tune from his new Crossings. There's plenty more great music for you as well.
