This week, we'll contemplate the patient ear. The following five tracks require time. At least they did for me. Each one finds its stride at precisely the right moment for that song and that make them special. Taking their own sweet time about it are HerbalJ, Audiokonstrukte, Terence Blanchard, Wurlitztraction and Misosoup. I'm Jim Nye.
At the end of the program, I'll have a few words about our 100th episode and give away. We'll begin with DJ HerbalJ and 'Break Zone'
