Called East West Moon, Jonathan Crayford's new record was inspired by notions of what divides us as well as what brings us together, and we'll dip into it this week. We'll also hear from new releases by Aaron Parks and Giacomo Gates, and pay tribute to the late Graham Wood, who passed away last week. Plus more live music from Poland's NAK Trio, recorded at the 2017 Melbourne International Jazz Festival.
