There's a heavy European flavour to this episode as we explore the current scene in eleven different countries. Two albums on the Hungarian BMC label introduce BMC's latest round of releases: pianist Aki Takase (Germany) & her band, Japanic, and saxophonist Istvan Grensco & his Collective Special 5 (Hungary), which features the great American reed man, Ken Vandermark. It's a first time meeting for these two tenor titans of today. German drummer Peter Kahlenborn and his trio tear it up on their Vesica Pisces, while French saxophonist Sylvain Cathala's latest is a definite gem. From Denmark, you'll hear the quartet, Ocean Fanfare, with the first of a trilogy dealing with biodiversity, economic theory, techno and spontaneous composition. There's a whole lot more for you as well so kick back and relax while we do the driving.
