This episode starts with some slow funk, supplied via Redman's Elastic band and trumpeter Takuya Kuroda (with silky vocals from Jose James). Ezra Collective re-imagines Shorters "Footprints". From there lots of new music including solo Potter and vibist Ross. There is more too.

Rank #2: Oct 18 2020 episode

No real theme to this episode, just some music I have been listening to this week. Although I've moved cross country, I still am playing music from our Hartford friends. Heard here are Matt Dwonszyk, Dan Liparini and Tony Davis. Also, I love this version of Herbie's Tell Me a Bedtime Story, from trumpeter Takuya Kuroda. Champian Fulton pays homage to Bird, and George Garzone plays Trane.
