Glenn Jones Glenn Jones (Jesse Sheppard)

Hear new guitar-centric music on this New Sounds program including music from the Baird Sisters, and from a new live record by South African guitarist Guy Buttery, who covers a song by Joanna Newsom. Also, listen to guitarist Glenn Jones, who draws from the rich tradition of John Fahey’s “American Primitive” guitar-playing.  Then hear music performed by the three classical guitarists of the Mobius Trio that owes a debt to John Fahey and hints at minimalism. Plus there’s small ensemble music written at Glen Deven Ranch in Big Sur, California from guitarist Bill Frisell, and music by John Zorn, as played by Pat Metheny.
