FIRST HOUR – NEW ALBUMS – talking 1 / Gwenifer Raymond: Strange Lights over Garth Mountain, from Strange Light over Garth Mountain / Dino Saluzzi: Ausencias, from Albores („an exercise in haunted beauty from beginning to end, ‘Albores’ depicts the process of discovery as fluid, evolutionary, undying.

FIFTH HOUR – TIME TRAVEL 2 – Terje Rypdal: two compositions from Descendre, with Palle Mikkelborg and Jon Christensen / talking 1 / Jon Hassell: Hex, from Vernal Equinox /// Nachrichten und Tagesspiegel um 5.30 bis 5.40 /// Robert Wyatt: A Beautiful Peace, from: Comicopera / talking 2 / Tony Allen: Ise Nla, Morose, Aye Le, from: Lagos No Shaking („Honest Jon’s Records is fast becoming a haven for treasures left-field, lost and overlooked, and has given Allen his head and let him do Lagos No Shaking. Recorded over 10 nights in the Nigerian capital, the record effortlessly proves that this older generation can still show the Afrobeat way. As might be expected, the album is rhythmically faultless, the percussion being allowed to breathe in its own space, while the horns are reassuringly rude, and the guitar figures conjure a trance for a dance, if you will.“)
