Rock the Casbah of Love

Patrick Burnette By

Sign in to view read count
Before the boys get to two releases hot off the presses, they spend some time with a Steve Kuhn release recorded soon after he parted ways with Art Farmer and started dating Monica Zetterlund. Then it's on to a fairly "out" recording by a veteran reed player and a less world-music-than-it-sounds release from a bass clarinetist with a Coltrane fixation.

The episode wraps things up with an in-depth look at Paul Anka's transformation of rock standards into mid-sixties style Sinatra swingers and Mike's discussion of the latest R.E.M. box set of live cuts from the BBC.

Somewhere in there, the bastards even squeeze in a conversation about Walt Disney and copyright.
