In the two weeks since our last new releases special, so much great music came to our attention that today we have one of those shows that some define as "all killer, no filler..." except that I don't like to think of music as "killing," but you catch my drift.

A special focus on Charlie Hunter's numerous recent projects as leader or sideman, and on great bass players like Petter Eldh, Christian McBride, Michael Formanek and Clovis Nicolas.

Happy listening!
