Trios and quartets dominate this episode: three-quarters of the playlist are from groups of that size. Featured is German saxophonist Philipp Gropper and his quartet Philm with music from his new album Consequences. Another quartet heard for the first time is Ornicar from France, and The OGJB Quartet is back. Of the threesomes, first timers are Gentiane MG from Montreal, Milton Man Gogh from Australia, Alexi Tuomarila from Finland, New York's Caroline Davis, Polish bassist Franciszek Pospieszalski, and England's free-jazz saxophonist Rachel Musson and pianist Liam Noble. And yes, as a matter of fact, the opening tune is the ringtone on my cell.
