Episode #3455

Big Sounds, Small Ensembles

« previous episode | next episode »

Monday, April 15, 2013

For this New Sounds program, listen to smaller groups who are capable of large expansive sounds.  There’s music by the Cinematic Orchestra, led by keyboardist/composer Jason Swinscoe, which is surely filmic in scope, while informed by jazz and electronica.  Then, sample music by bass player Skúli Sverrisson & sax player Óskar Guðjónsson, from a record that they did together, “Box Tree,” which comes folded up in a map.

Also, hear small ensemble music from Norwegian sax player & composer Marius Neset from a gorgeous folk-infused and jazzy opus, “Birds.”  Plus, listen to music from Basque country by Oreka Tx and a trio record from the Dutch cellist Ernst Reijseger, featuring the mbira.
