Gianmarco Liguori was kind enough to send me some more records from his Sarang Bang label, including this fantastic two-LP compilation, The Way In Is The Way Out: The Music of Murray McNabb. McNabb features prominently on Liguori's Duga-3 album (which I have been raving about) and is apparently a legend in New Zealand jazz, as documented on this comp along with a wealth of CDs and other recordings. Everything I have heard is terrific. Sadly, Murray McNabb passed away in 2013 at the age of 66.

I talk about this and other records in this video. Thank you again, Gianmarco!
