Today's theme for the playlist is freedom. The freedom to perform music person-to-person has been taken away during the Pandemic so it is the freedom to play. Freedom of expression is not a lifestyle thing or just doing what you want. About the act of creation it is more overarching and involves freedom from self-censorship, freedom from bad faith and more centred around the freedom from oppression. Free to be, free to seize the day. 5 July 2021 playlist, above

The Norwegian Jazzland label has published details of jazztronica guitar legend Eivind Aarset's latest album to be released this autumn.

Phantasmagoria, or A Different Kind of Journey is timed for release during the upcoming Punkt festival in September. On this 4tet configuration Aarset builds from i. e. terrain with bass guitarist Audun Erlien and two drummer-percussionists Erland Dahlen and Wetle Holte plus among album guests on 'Manta Ray or Soft Spot' Nordic jazz titan the trumpeter Arve Henriksen appears.

Album piece 'Light on Sanzu River' takes inspiration from 'Waiting For a Boat' by singer Anneli Drecker. That song appeared on Rune Grammofon album Rocks & Straws (2015). Also guesting iconic sampler Jan Bang contributes to several Phantasmagoria tracks. Field recordings by John Derek Bishop are also factored in on a few numbers.
