It's the feature recording in this episode, but it's got company from the very excellent ...and Then There's This by Artifacts (Nicole Mitchell, Tomeka Reid & Mike Reed). This is a superb album. So is Wadada Leo Smith's A Love Sonnet For Billie Holiday Also sampled this week for the first time, music from drummers Mike Pride, Billy Mohler, Dan Weiss (teamed with guitarist Miles Okazaki), trumpeter Enrico Rava, trombonist Samuel Blaser with some reggae, and Josh Sinton alone with his baritone sax.
