The Show: So many holes…

There’s room to stretch out on today’s show which means we can finally play the whole 25+ minutes of “Blue” Gene Tyranny’s odd but compelling but soothing “Out Of The Blue…” track from 1978. Possibly the longest single song The Joint has ever played and likely to stay that way until The Herb Whisperer summons up the courage to dedicate half an hour to one of those John Coltrane live skronks.
