It's an episode years in the making when Mike is finally able to track down guitarist, composer, and raconteur Duck Baker. We discovered Duck through his solo recording of Herbie Nichols' tunes, but Mike finds out that Duck has collaborated with such luminaries as John Zorn, Roswell Rudd, and Eugene Chadbourne while keeping up a stream of solo and group releases and composing dozens of tunes. Don't miss this discussion from one of the only finger-style guitarists as comfortable at playing folk tunes and jazz covers as he is traveling to outer space.
