From the pleasures of a picnic or a party, a rhumba or a romance, to the thought of life itself, who hasn't felt this: It's been so sweet, don't let it end ... Let's take the long way home.

I offer you a third installment of Longform Jazz; this one claims the distinction based on two mini-epic (10 minute) tracks, one from Charles Mingus, and the other from Bugge Wesseltoft, closing out the show. You'll also hear nu-jazz, lounge and some energetic bass-heavy downtempo from Puddu Varano, Parov Stelar, the Bobby Hughes Combination, Gavin Froome, Smarton Trio +1, and Monte La Rue. A favorite for me was the Benjamin Devigne piece; he also plays with the group Metropolitan Jazz Affair whose track Taxi Gun Café appeared in last November's show "Headspace" – another delicious serving of longform jazz.

Thanks to Third Power for providing the cover image; it says everything about our hurried and often passive transit through this life.
