Catching up this time out on a couple of great releases that I've been a little tardy in playing: bassist Gregg August's important Dialogues On Race Vol. 1 and Aussie saxophone powerhouse Sandy Evans' Postcards From The Anthropocene . The late drummer Paul Motian wrote lots of tunes and English drummer Phelan Burgoyne has collected a number of the previously unrecorded songs on his new Yazgol. Also from England are the historical free jazz quartet, Mujician, and Fred Frith Trio & Guests with new releases also.
