There's lots of new releases sampled in this episode. The critics' darlings, Thumbscrew is back and meeting their usual standards of creativity and originality. Popular French bassist Sarah Murcia sings off-beat stuff on her new Eyeballing, while the Finnish quartet Alder Ego stretches the boundaries on their latest. The pandemic looms over the new release by Michael Sarian & Matthew Putnam, as they carefully put the album together in the midst of lock-downs. Toronto guitarist Dan Pitt and the band do lots of right on their new Wrongs, Italian pianist Giancarlo Tossani and his group get deep into a William Parker-inspired vein. Add some solo guitar from Scott DuBois and a bunch more good stuff, and it's full steam ahead.
