Hooraywe've made it alive through 2020 and through eight seasons of this podcast, too. To celebrate the big "eighth" (the internet claims it's bronze and pottery for that anniversary, should you want to send gifts) we talk about half that many jazz octets, and throw in an album named after a funky sea-creature as a bonus. In pop matters, Harry Nilsson's alternate takes and Italian prog get brief look-ins.
Discussion of Rod Levitt's album Dynamic Sound Patterns (Riverside) 11:30
Discussion of Alan Wakeman's album The Octet Broadcasts 1969 and 1979 (Gearbox) 27:00
