The underlying theme in this episode appears to be ensembles of varying sizes and styles. From Sweden, trumpeter Goran Kajfes' quartet Tropique blends elements of groove, trance, improv, African with a Don Cherry on top in the new Into The Wild, while another quartet, the Wójciński/Szmańda Quartet from Poland, knocks down the walls of same-same with power balanced with spacy contemplation. You'll also hear trios of different plateaus: bassist Stephan Crump, saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock and pianist Cory Smythe, Wojciech Jachna-Grzegorz Tarwid-Albert Karch, also from Poland, and poet Yusef Komunyakaa with David Cieri and Mike Brown in a follow-up to White Dust . Chicago saxophonist Dustin Laurenzi assembled a talented band to honour the music of Moondog, while a large group of talented women close the show: Marilyn Mazur's Shamania. The sizes may vary, but the music is consistently large!
