This week we look at the variety that can be found in the World of Jazz as exemplified by the amazing new collaboration with operatic baritone Steven Herring on the new album from Kirk Knuffke, which we contrasted with the ground breaking avant-garde work of featured artist Ingrid Laubrock and with the traditional stylings of another featured player Jerry Bergonzi. In between a selection of new releases and archive cuts from the Greenleaf label.
