The gem of this podcast comes near the end with three tracks from an innovative take on the Beatles album Sgt. Pepper. Prior to that we have classic jazz from Oliver Nelson and Duke Ellington. Wayne Shorter stretches your imagination with artful noise. Chris Potter and Jonathan Barber bring a modern feel to this American artform, jazz.
