Sick Week


Both Drew and Chilly are laid seriously low with the flu this week. The bed-ridden, fevered, I-think-I-see-Jesus kind of flu.

Check back later and we’ll try to reinstate an old post as a “re-run” for those who missed it the first go-round. If there’s any particular older post you’re jonesing to hear, leave word in the comments.

And we’ll be back strong on Monday with some exceptionally fine new tunes.

UPDATE: See here for a (mostly) revivified Sam Rivers post. (We’re having technical difficulties with one of the tracks. Seems to be a theme of the week.)
