  • intersections

    The first hour of this week’s show took time to celebrate the work of legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius, who would have celebrated a birthday on December 1st. Several tracks from Weather Report’s eclectic Mr. Gone and Pat Metheny’s excellent Bright Size Life were the primary sources referenced for this week’s mini-musical celebration. The second hour kept things rolling along, crossing numerous sonic intersections (from some unexpected sources) weaving funk, fusion, electronic, and ambient sounds into the morning airwaves.
