Also on the show... trombonist Dave Panichi, who returned to Australia in 2000 after spending many years in New York working with a host of bands and musicians. Hear a new studio recording with his fine big band from our Sydney Jazztrack studios.
Joe Locke and Geoffrey Keezer co-lead a new recording and you'll hear a fine reworking of Naima plus Coltrane himself with an alternate version of 'Giant Steps' with Cedar Walton on piano.
And to finish Mal's last Jazztrack for 2012 a piece he always plays to round off the year in a small concession to the event happening shortly involving lots of red and white.
