Extra-long list this week, culminating in a load of Alice Coltrane caused by me spending the day writing about Luaka Bop’s wonderful new comp of her ashram music. Before that, have a go at some of this stuff: Chuck Berry! Will Oldham & Nathan Salsburg! Hurray For The Riff Raff! Kevin Morby’s very strong return! Some hip cratedigging from the new Jazz Dispensary imprint… And please don’t sleep on the Wet Tuna live session I posted last week and included again as a link below – that one’s a jam for all time, for this month at least.
