EchoTest, From Two Balconies
Well! This is something different. I prefer their instrumental/ProjeKcty side, but have to give them credit for going somewhere so different this time. Even if it's closer to vaguely conventional song-based territory, there's enough of a modern progressive/trip-hop side (including one great groove by P@) that I'm happy to go with it.

Joe Fiedler, Like, Strange
Listening to this, it's not surprising the guy has played with the Glenn Miller Orchestra and worked as the trombonist/musical arranger for Sesame Street. It's a fun celebratory recording that covers a good amount of ground; some classic swing in the trombone's usual wheelhouse, some very different things with guitar juiced-up enough to live in the world of rock instead of jazz. I like.

Tom Kennedy, Points of View
This one's not bad and not outstanding. Take the fairly standard electric fusion template of Dave Weckl (TK's main collaborator), shuffle a few guests and you've got something like this. Also fun in its own way, though I'm not sure how much I'll be coming back to it later.

Ten Strings and a Goat Skin, Après du Poêle
No points for guessing how folky and/or European this one is. They've got an able feel for jigs, reels and the odd traditional ballad. Strictly speaking it's twenty-odd strings, a box or two, a goat skin/tipper and some vocal cords, but they're really enough of a mouthful already.

Nik Bärtsch's Ronin Live (2012)
Richard Barbieri, Planets + Persona
Trey Gunn, The Waters, They Are Rising
KC, AttaKcaThraK / Beat (2016)
Hey Rosetta!, Seeds
Blackfield V
Nick Drake, Pink Moon
Porcupine Tree, The Sky Moves Sideways
Tetraptych s/t
Massive Attack Live at the Royal Albert Hall '97

If you've just spent a week in Port-au-Prince for the reason I suspect, I can't promise not to be bitterly jealous for at least a while.
I like to live in an altered state
It makes me love all the things I hate
And I'm just happy to be alive
Don't want to come off too straight-laced
I like to put on my happy face
While I cry on the inside

Well, that'll be a read to look forward to. I hope it was a great time.

Yes, it was. An amazing experience. Thanks for your comment on the AAJ site. I finally saw it and responded there yesterday. I've been distracted the last few days covering another festival: Big Ears in Knoxville.
