Vancouver's Gordon Grdina is masterfully adept at guitar and oud, so that flexibility leads to many possibilities for playing opportunities, from jazz and improv settings to his world music group, Haram. This episode finds Grdina opening things up with music from two very recent recordings: Skin and Bones (with Matthew Shipp and Mark Helias) and Cooper's Park with his Quartet (Russ Lossing, Satoshi Takeishi and Oscar Noriega). You'll also hear some state-of-the-art improvisation from violinist Jason Kao Hwang and pianist/vibraphonist Karl Berger, the trio of Daniel Carter, Billy Martin and Bradley Farberman, New York drummer Colin Hinton, the electronic duo Dustlights, and Polish saxophonist Jerzy Maczynski. Top that off with some "Skrontch" from New Orleans' saxophonist Byron Asher, and this episode will keep you entertained.
