On this show big ensembles dominate with the new albums on Greenleaf from Manuel Valera and Mike Fahie. There's also the experimental side of jazz with fresh sounds from Vintage Astronaut and Zing!. This is all balanced out with some fascinating improvised music from Cooper-Moore and Stephen Gauci and Kaze & Ikue Mori.
