Listen to a bit of new music for trumpet and electronics by Nils Petter Molvaer, from his latest, “Baboon Moon,” on this New Sounds program.  There’s also music from a lovely collaboration record between a Senegalese singer/kora player Ablaye Cissoko and German-born trumpeter Volker Goetze, a late-night gem combining West African music and ethereal, atmospheric European jazz.

Plus, music from trumpeter Jon Hassell, and some music from Codona, featuring Don Cherry.

I loved the song by Ablaye Cissoko and Volker Goetze you played, but I cannot find it anywhere to download. I checked obliqsound .com, but can't even find the artists.



P.S. I've been a listener of both New Sounds and Souncheck for many years and credit you with introducing me to some wonderful music.
