This week’s show features a pair of new albums from two Toronto avant garde stalwarts: bassist Rob Clutton with saxophonist Tony Malabyand drummer Mark Segger’s sextet (with Rob Clutton). The Toronto experimental scene is an active one, and both Clutton and Segger (now studying in Edmonton) are key musicians. Another bassist, from San Diego, is Kyle Motl and he teams up with Scottish violinist Go GoGwilt to form Treesearch. They’ve just released a very unique recording called “Know More Knowledge”. From Europe, you’ll hear Chuffdrone, an interesting quintet from Austria, and Dash!, a slammin’ trio from The Netherlands. There’s more from Gaucimusic’s Bushwick-centered recordings, and for a bit of a trip back, to the early ‘90s, there’s music from an all-star free jazz quartet featuring Norway’s Frode Gjerstad facing off with the great Bobby Bradford, backed by American ex-pat bassist, Kent Carter, and English drummer John Stevens. Lots more for you as well, as always.
