Mar 04, 2020 Season 8 Episode 187
Michael Caldwell

After the "politicapocalypse" (Mike's coinage - ask him) of the previous episode, the boys decides to gently transition away from that minefield by looking at two artists more obliquely engaged with political discourse and two artists more or less removed from it entirely (by temperament and timing).  To soothe Pat's scalded nerves, Mike brings a couple "cool" cats to the party, though by the end he agrees that one of them just might have been satirizing a certain mid-sixties obsession with Latin American rhythms.  Mastodon, Trembling Bells, and disco-era Hank Crawford make up a truly eclectic pop matters segment.  Paul Desmond – TAKE TEN; Bob Brookmeyer – SMALL BAND, TROMBONE JAZZ SAMBA; Yazz Ahmed – POLYHYMNIA; Eric Hofbauer – BOOK OF FIRE.
