Another podcast of mostly new music. The first three tracks feature guitarist and composer Tom Guarna. The first number has Tom accompanying Manuel Valera's New Cuban Express, followed by two numbers off of Guarna's new release Rush. Dig the cool album cover art as well. We follow up with new music from Earl MacDonald's Creative Opportunity Workshop, and Noah Baerman's album of music with a message, Ripples.
