Blurring the boundaries between jazz, ambience and electronica, the sophomore album from Szun Waves New Hymn to Freedom, is the album of the week on the show. This new release is a document of six entirely live improvisations with "no edits or overdubs." The album title is apt, it is jazz, but it also bedded in the British electronic tradition, creating a refreshing new sound.

The show also focuses on Guillermo McGill and Marion Brown with two tracks each, live music from Nik Bärtsch's Ronin, classic Lee Konitz and a healthy selection of new releases.
