Episode #2629

Spacey Country Chamber Jazz (Encore Edition)

« previous episode | next episode »

Friday, August 05, 2011

For this New Sounds, wander though European cities with the acoustic chamber jazz quartet Gato Libre from their latest effort, "Nomad." This band of Japanese musicians plays acoustic folk, using trumpet, guitar, bass, and accordion, doing tunes that mix up flamenco with Old World waltz, music that stirs up reggae with a touch of blues or a reel from a Scottish pub. Also, listen to country-swing folk jazz from the Tin Hat Trio (now operating as a quintet, and just Tin Hat) from their "Helium" release. Plus, there's the spacey countrified jazz from Bill Frisell's Quartet, and more.

amina alaoui arco iris

Mystics and the Mediterranean (Podcast Edition)

For this New Sounds, we’ll sample liberally from the latest recording from Moroccan-born singer Amina Alaoui, called “Arco Iris.”  It’s a pan-Mediterranean blend of flamenco music from Spain, fado music from Portugal, Arab-Andalusian music and Brazilian choro, linked by jazz and a night in Tunisia.
