Charles Mingus said jazz was a word invented to separate musicians from their money. Music for a Free World brings us together, drawing listeners to the healing power of smooth free jazz. Each week, surprise guests bring their own sides to spin and their instruments of choice to spontaneously jam.

Holy scheissers, William Hooker, I love his work!. I found his album he did w/ DJ Olive live at the Knitting Factory at a random record store and it sent me down a rabbit hole in 1999, so, when I moved to NYC, I sought for Olive, and he became y turntabilist sensei. To this day, Olive is one of my best friends....
