Not the usual jazz meets classical date

Email received - Pliable: I'm an American jazz & blues fan who's finally discovering classical/new music/Zen Buddhism due to your blog. Thank you very much for your efforts.

Was wondering if you've heard Kenny Wheeler's "Other People" (CAMJ 7801-2) yet? Its with the Hugo Wolf String Quartet and pianist John Taylor. Not really the usual "jazz meets classical" date; it's quite refreshing. KW actually sits out a few on his own record!

Also, David Munrow is on the (relatively) new Pentangle box (Sanctuary/Castle UK - cover above) from the early 70s. Apologies if this is all old news to you; I don't presume to know more than the Master! Thanks again for your blog. Kind regards, TE

I'd add Blood Ulmer's "Harmelodic Guitar With Strings" to the list, too.
