There's a wide variety of great tunes this episode: Club d'Elf kicks it off with the title track to their latest live set, saxophonist Muriel Grossmann and her quartet acknowledge the musical and mystical paths of John Coltrane, the New York Free Quartet's Dream Time marks their return to releasing excellent work, and the very influential guitarist Michael Gregory Jackson's latest debuts. There's more, of course, from Swiss tenor player Marc Jufer and trio, and the Frenchmen Stephan Oliva and Sebastien Boisseau - Matthieu Donarier teamed with Tom Rainey, and more from Dustin Laurenzi's Moondog tribute (and Moondog himself!). Finally, check out the music of Italian drummer Tony Arco who draws upon one of his mentors, fellow drummer Ra Kalam Bob Moses for his Colors of the Soul.
