In these odd days, "Life Is a Gong Show" is an apt title for the daily machinations of beleaguered people. Even though Songs of Tales recorded the album months before the shutdown, this noisy, contemplative, crackling, rhythmical, and fun music feels just right. Call it jazz, call it fusion, world music but let these 11 tracks seep into your brain and enjoy!
