Episode #3485

Music with Multiple Hyphens

« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Ordinarily, the music one hears on New Sounds has a lot of hyphens in it as one tries to describe it, but for this show, the hyphens have multiplied at least eight-fold.  Listen to blends of world music, minimalism, chamber music, jazz, rock and post-rock, big band, Ethio-jazz, folk music from the world over, Celtic, Latin jazz - all coming together in various combinations for the featured pieces.  Hear brand new music from the Dutch world-jazz post-rock fusion band the Ex, with guests Brass Unbound.  Also, hear from Sweden's Ale Møller and the Bohuslän Big Band, who bring together Celtic, folk, jazz, and medieval music. 

There’s music from Sweden’s Goran Kajfes, a Turkish trumpeter/composer who leads the new music-chamber-world-jazz-band called the Subtropic Arkestra.  He stews Brazilian groove music and German psychedelic electronica together with a nod to Sun Ra’s legendary cosmic jazz ensemble, and a dash of progressive jazz/rock as he takes on a Nigerian highlife tune from the 1970’s.  Then listen to Latin-Ethio-jazz music served up by the Family Atlantica, featuring Mulatu Astatke.  Plus, minimalist-Mediterranean chamber-jazz from Fabrizio Bai, chamber-folk-jazz featuring accordion and tuba from the Belgian trio Massot-Florizoone-Horbaczewski, and so much more. [Note:Thanks to listener Johan Lindquist for the correction. Ale Møller is not Norwegian, but Swedish]
