This episode is dominated by trios, perhaps the most popular format in jazz today. Steve Lehman's new The People I Love debuts (with the addition of the formidable pianist Craig Taborn), definitely a must-hear for 2019. Golden Valley Is Now reunites Taborn with Dave King and Reid Anderson (they all grew up together), while another threesome that's very comfortable together is saxophonist Stephen Gauci, bassist Adam Lane and drummer Kevin Shea. They're the house band at the Bushwick in Brooklyn. Mario Pavone's Dialect Trio with Tyshawn Sorey and Matt Mitchell is a truly all-world ensemble, and so is the Crosscurrents Trio: Dave Holland, Chris Potter and Zakir Hussain. Other trio music on this show comes from Jakob Bro, Jose Lencastre, Trio Antipodes from Canada, and KLM (Ken Filiano, Lou Grassi and Marilyn Lerner). Not a trio but equally brilliant is Aussie trumpeter Phil Slater's quintet and the sublime The Dark Pattern. There's a great closing tune as well!
