Alister Spence has released a new album with his long-running trio, featuring bassist Lloyd Swanton and drummer/percussionist Toby Hall.

Playlist Information

A playlist and listen-again audio are available for 1 month by clicking the play button above after the broadcast.

The new recording is a 2-disc set, Not Everything But Enough, witih one album of compositions and one of shorter improvised pieces.  It's an engrossing and often atmospheric recording, and we'll sample it in this episode. We'll also hear from Jukka Perka's superb homage to Dizzy Gillespie, released to celebrate Gillespie's centenary, and from the debut album by UK guitarist Rob Luft. And we'll celebrate John Pochee's Distinguished Services to Australian Music award with a track from Pochee's Ten Part Invention.
