Playlist for the Unpopular Music Webcast for September 17, 2016

There are some long pieces today, this time not out of laziness, but just that this is music I want to share, and it goes on a bit. There's a bit of a third-stream vibe that developed, mostly of its own accord, and then started to develop into a classical-meets-jazz thing, extended more out of a desire for continuity than anything else, except perhaps to avoid another long, slow, quiet set on a beautiful last weekend of summer day.

See the playlist after the break...
