    Posted: July 11 2014 at 10:00
As promised I have pulled together an ALT2 Show Summer Special, and pushed the sounds beyond the 3 hour mark.  I've also taken the opportunity to play some really long tracks which I don't permit during the normal shows , so hence the complete Steve Wilson remastered Close To The Edge and Books 1 and 2 of Rush's Cygnus X1 fused into a whole of 30 minutes play,  I hope you can stand Mr Lee's voice. And listen out for the 'who are these guys?' track right at the end of the recording.

THE CATCH: this show is only downloadable and won't be broadcast (but thanks to LCR - especially Alison -  for letting me have time to use station facilities). I am literally uploading the show to We Transfer at the moment. Now if you want a download, please contact me, via the show's email address in the next 6 days:
alternativealternativeshow@yahoo.co.uk

Interesting I first came across Okeh as a label of the 30's specialising in the blues  - Bessie Smith for instance, I  think, sure Keb Mo' was signed to it in the 90's

this new Bugge's album is quite nice - after his early nu jazz recordings he continued with series of (openly boring) chamber jazz solo piano albums

I believe this change in direction is for good

It may or may not the last show of the academic year, depends on studio availability next week, being out of term. However, we have an excellent show this week. The first 30-35minutes is filled with new jazz. More Mats Morgan,  our favourite album for the third week running - and we ain't the only radio station to say so. After Spanish, Swedish, Brazilian and Hungarian blues, found some Italian blues.Something from the heavily TV advertised Led Zeppelin remasters (3rd time???) but personally not so impressed with outtakes that come with LZ2. Also in 2 minds wrt another Steve Hackett Genesis Revisited album - but it'll see us out Thursday night. After a couple of inferior Echolyn albums to come my way, 'Suffocating The Bloom' greatly makes up for those disappointments and reminds me of a prog band that sound refreshingly different. And musician of the term, doctor McGill guests on a couple of tunes by  A Triggering Myth.

I think there are a few German recordings with Sting, that didn't get the  hard marketing outside Germany. Rumour: there is an album of Sting with Jack Bruce singing Kurt Viel (sp)

too many clones/imitators., but the vast major don't have the lightness or the sense of fun of EST. However, I rather like GoGo Penguin who admit the EST influence.

EST refreshed interest to modern jazz, lots of clones around but no-one repeated their success

and Esperanza Spalding - I saw her next year, on MOL jazz fest in Budapest, she still didn't receive her Grammy and played just as opener for Stanko

It's quite impressive to see her singing and playing vertical bass

I've seen EST live once around ten years ago in small Serbian town near Bosnian border - local jazz enthusiasts organized jazz fest.

You can imagine sleepy Southern town where nothing happened during last three hundred years, lazy homeless dogs on main street, locals spending time drinking coffee and speaking about politics outside,etc,etc

Local hall was half empty (free entry concert!)and even those who came obviously looked a bit surprised with EST music

All looked quite surrealistic
