  1. A always, you do share excellent stuff. Some of these guys I am already well familiar with, but even those that I’m not, I can always trust to be worthy of a listen. Thanks! — TK

  2. Thanks for sharing this. Just a note: there is nothing new about Andrew Smiley and Jason Nazary. They were together half of Little Women (along with saxophonists Darius Jones and Travis Laplante), a truly stupendous Brooklyn group that must be heard to be believed. Their 2010 album Throat is staggering.
