Off to a great start

Excellent roster of guests, deep conversation. Many of these greats (Dave Burrell, Stanley Cowell) are hiding in plain sight, yet few others seem to be reaching out to them. I look forward to each episode. Cheers, Phil!

Very Poor Quality

Leave it to the great Phil Freeman to find a way to make interviews with legends like Anthony Braxton & Leo Smith boring and unlistenable. Horrendous sound quality and a host with the personality of cardboard. A shame.

Excellent conversations; could use an editor

Phil Freeman has a nice voice. He preps well for his interviews and he talks to really interesting musicians. My only critique is he could use an editor. The interviews seem raw: from the subject picking up the phone to hanging up at the end. That makes them authentic but also kind of rambling and occasionally even awkward.
