Free Jazz Alchemist Radio I - Lublin , II - Easter

Because of the weekend in Lublin (III Lublin Jazz Festival) I have to catch-up with some more trivial errands and won't be able to to the live program tonight, but, hopefully with none of the usual technical difficulties, the playlist is ready for you. 
First we will get back to some of the concerts that made the program of the lublin festival (posts about 2nd and 3rd day of the festival will appear in the next few days) - so you can count on some Dave Douglas Brass Ecstasy, Hera or Mikolaj Trzaska & Clementine Gasser in the mix.
Secondly I'd like to present few excerpts from the recently reviewed John Wolf Brennan and Darius Jones & Matthew Shipp duo cds.
Thirdly the Easter holidays are coming. Piotr Baron takes direct inspiration in his faith and in religious music and his readings of those themes (with Wadada Leo Smith!!!) are worthy of attention of any (free)jazz fan, nevermind the religious beliefs. Waclaw Zimpel took on the story of crucifixion, turning it into universal reflection on human fate in his "Passion" with the Undivided band, but citations of traditional religious music appear both in his Hera or The Light groups. Finally there's the most spiritual player in the jazz history saying "Amen" - John Coltrane and rooted in gospel song by Charles Mingus (his birthday is on April 22).
