This episode features a tribute to the magnificent Peter Brötzmann whose brilliance was appreciated by so many. New albums sampled, aside from the opening track with the great saxophonist and percussionist Hamid Drake, are the powerful trio from Spain led by saxophonist Liba Villavecchia, Orquestra Del Tiempo Perdido from Netherlands, guitarist Eric Hofbauer whose album was inspired by the speech patterns of environment advocate, Greta Thunberg, and Poland's Marek Pospiezaski who pays tribute to women composers. And another track from Jaimie Branch's posthumous release.
