From a musician whose album is making waves, we kick of this episode with Kansas City drummer John Armato and a track from his 2021 release The Drummer Loves Ballads. From there, it's Brother Malcom via Christian McBride from his album Relief, Gerry Gibbs and a song from his Songs From My Father (with Chick Corea). We spin other artists with new releases including Billy Test, Alex Norris, Joel Frahm and Peter Kater. Dig this episode, my friends.
