There’s new music from the California Guitar Trio on this New Sounds show, from their recent release, “Andromeda,” which has the talented and crafty guitarists playing with effects, keyboard textures, and a guest musician – Tony Levin of King Crimson.  We’ll hear their Reichian “Improv 8: Layered Circulation” and possibly some fingerstylin’ middle-eastern influenced tunes as well.

Also, there’s world-jazzy yet rootsy music from a collaborative record by bass player Dave Holland and the veteran flamenco guitarist Pepe Habichuela.  Plus, older music from Ralph Towner and the band Oregon and more.
