This episode Seth and Rob take a phone call from Reid Anderson of The Bad Plus, and topics discussed include some of the band’s adventurous releases, working with Josh Redman and Bill Frisell, the differences between European and US audiences and his band mate Ethan Iverson’s famous blog. Then Jojo Hermann of Widespread Panic comes in and lets our listeners know about his new band Slim Wednesday and the recent recording they did in Atlanta. JoJo also takes us back to New York in the 80s, where he would initially cut his teeth as a musician. But we also learn why he chose to move to Mississippi and how that in turn led him to finding his way into Widespread Panic - and he shares some stories from his years with those icons of jam. Then we get a small window into a poolside chat conducted by Weiner’s alter-ego LL PoolJ. He chats with Deer Tick about a few things including their next (planned to be a double) album, the sense of community among their peer bands and bonding excretory experiences.
