This New Sounds program features music for wind instruments, like Lebanese Arabic-groove music for the ney flute by Bassam Saba, and Andy Statman's clarinet, as heard in Hassidic tunes that he's arranged on his release, "Between Heaven and Earth."  Plus, music by Igor Leonardi from Slovenia, music from Bulgaria, from Turkey, and perhaps even some music from Georgia.
