The boys contemplate the profundity of the abyss—or, at least, of some fairly serious third-streamy jazz releases, on this very "whoa, man" episode. A three-disc extravaganza from a feted musician on Blue Note, a challenging big-group project on the always challenging Intakt label, and a ballet score by jazz's favorite theoretician from the sixties make up the bulk of this one. Pop matters lightens things up a bit with discussions of Brian Eno and Donovan (Donovan?) and Pat's pocket review of a Joey DeFrancesco gig at Minneapolis' Dakota jazz club.
