In these days of political chaos and division, truth does matter. We are reminded of that through music from Noah Baerman (Satyagrahi) and Kamasi Washington (Truth) at the center of this podcast. Those tunes are sandwiched between classic jazz from Miles and Blakey, and a jazz/fusion set featuring Haque, Mahavishnu and new from Chick/Gadd.

This podcast celebrates the birthday of jazz fusion guitarist John McLaughlin. We play his music in several different settings to show the depth of his artistry and innovation. Most of this show has (Mahavishnu) John McLaughlin as a leader, but there are also tracks as a sideman. His work with Miles Davis is legendary. The podcast ends with an unrelated track from a CTI release of Milt Jackson playing Hubbard's Sunflower.
