Podcast episode 7: weekly listening — spooky
Today we've got Afrobeat legend Tony Allen, Jack Dejohnette, Sly Dunbar on a pretty spaced-out bit of dub, a couple of Moroccan pieces, Thelonious Monk, Joey Baron, and a couple of other things.
Once again, you can listen to this with the embedded player, or at the Podomatic site, or you can download the mp3.
Track list after the break:
Tony Allen — Progress / drums by Tony Allen
Jack Dejohnette — Pictures / drums by Jack Dejohnette

It's worth noting that with this track we have a Brazilian drummer playing the baiao feel with the “wrong” bass drum pattern, according to our recent discussion on northern Brazilian drumming; draw what lesson you will from that.
