Goat Horns, & More

« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

An array of traditional world music instruments come together on “Ossicles,” a new record by Norwegian tenor saxophonist, goat horn player, and composer Karl Seglem.  Listen to African thumb piano, or mbira, an array of percussion including steel pans and tabla, the Norwegian traditional folk instrument - the hardanger fiddle- and oh yes, the goat horns as part of selections from "Ossicles" on this New Sounds.

Also, we’ll hear an arrangement of a classic Miles Davis tunes from “Sketches Of Spain” featuring principals from the original sessions—Chick Corea, Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield, Ron Carter, Gonzalo Rubalcaba- working with other Spanish musicians (let’s hear those bagpipes!)  It’s "Miles Español" - the brainchild of Bob Belden, who wanted to explore the connections between Spanish, Latin and Moorish traditional and contemporary music.
