This episode acknowledges a few of the outstanding and important female jazz improvisers who are becoming more and more prominent in the 21st century. You'll hear music from the mutual admiration duo of saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock and pianist Aki Takase, French saxophonist Alexandra Grimal displaying her talents on three differently focused albums, Estonian take-no-prisoners saxophonist Maria Faust, and Australia's much-heralded pianist Andrea Keller.

The guys are also well-represented throughout this show. Two new debut recordings come from a pair of trios: Maisemat from Finland, and Ellery Eskelin with Christian Weber and Michael Greiner.
