Faced with a New Year's Eve show, this one was extended by two hours, and the last three veered off into dancin' territory. There were some new releases sampled though. In hour one, Finnish pianist Kari Ikonen displays his considerable talents and his "maqiano" for playing Arabic half-tones, on his solo excursion Impressions, Improvisations & Compositions, and Swedish multi-reedist Alberto Pinton checked in with his new All The Difference. In the second hour, you'll hear more solo piano from Matt Piet's impressive and personal Pentimento, before some other program hosts from Taint Radio contribute some tunes. I had asked them to choose something that represented the year just passed. After that, music to dance to. Thanks to all who have checked out One Man's Jazz in 2021. I wish you all peace and health.
