Music tells story as much as a storyteller, dance, theatre, etc.  This episode features some definite stories wrapped in improvisation.  Vancouver guitarist Tony Wilson has already written a fictional novella about an addicted busker surviving on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.  Tony lived on that street, and his story came out in a recording called “A Day’s Life.” Now he’s back with another revelatory piece of work:  “This Way Through The Forest”, music (part of a multi-media presentation) that shares his story as a teenager living at St. Joseph’s Training School in Ontario, a place that was fraught with physical and sexual abuse of the boys who were sent there.  This album debuts on this episode of One Man’s Jazz.

Twenty-year-old saxophonist Isaiah Collier is writing his own story every time he steps on the stage. Steeped in the traditions of Chicago and the AACM, Collier has been drawing the attention of the jazz world.  His new recording “The Unapologetic Negro” displays some of that fire and power.  You’ll want to listen to his music.

New recordings also appearing on the show come from Japanese reed man Akihiro Yoshimoto, the German powerhouse ensemble Zwitschermaschine, guitarist Dan Phillips, Aussie saxophonist Jon Crompton and Portuguese drummer Joao Lencastre and a new quartet. In fact there’s a good sampling of the Portuguese scene in the persons of André Carvalho, Gabriel Ferrandini, and The Attic.   I hope you like the music. It’s hard as nails.
