Jazz guitarist Ryan Blotnick is driving down from Southwest Harbor to be a guest on the show this week. He was going to stop by to get a copy of The Compositions of Paul Motian  so I asked if he'd bring his guitar and some CDs of his music. I'll bring some Paul Motian CDs and we'll listen to his influences as well. For more about Ryan:
