On this show we feature some new releases including Gerald Cleaver's fascinating marriage of electronica and jazz which celebrates musicians who have influenced him—there is also music from some of those he honours. Plus, the fulsome sound of the The Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra and more from the excellent Tony Malaby Turnpike Diaries series. This is accompanied by a selection of other sounds, including the sophomore album from Shijin.
