This is an episode with with plenty of “bounce” – bounce as in rhythm and bounce as in traveling around the globe Several of the recordings this week are drummer-led sessions: Joao Lencastre from Portugal, Harris Eisenstadt from Canada, Gard Nilssen & his Acoustic Unity from Norway, Germans Max Andrzejewski & Hütte (paying tribute to Robert Wyatt) and Americans Kahil El’Zabar from the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, and Whit Dickey. Lisbon saxophonist Desiderio Lázaro drops by, as do a phenomenal trio, the Legendary Trio, of Ken Vandermark, Joe McPhee and Susan Alcorn, bassist Charlie Kirchen and the Kingston Trio. No, not that one, the Damien Kingston Trio from Hobart in Tasmania. And a Spinal Tap piece layered on to an Ornette Coleman tune – from the Michael Leonhart Orchestra.
