« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Listen to an hour of moody nocturnal works that grow out of the jazz tradition on this New Sounds.  Hear music based on a silent film score, “Wind” by Ibrahim Maalouf, an American trumpeter who plays a quarter-tone trumpet.  Then there’s also music from a collaborative record by Afro-Cuban pianist Omar Sosa and the Italian trumpeter Paolo Fresu.  Plus, listen to music by Wadada Leo Smith about the struggle for civil rights from a 4 CD set, “Ten Freedom Summers.” And more.
