The band's debut album sees Trish Clowes focusing on a quartet setting after several projects where she's worked with larger ensembles. We'll take a look and a listen to My Iris on this week's show, along with a new album that features the final documented performance of Charlie Haden with his Liberation Music Orchestra. And we'll hear from Sandy Evans' superb tribute to the late Bernie McGann, recorded live at last year's Wangaratta Jazz Festival.
