#3507: Mid-Sized Ensembles

Email a Friend

Listen to music from mid-sized ensembles on this New Sounds program.  There’s music from Daniel Wohl and members of TRANSIT from his record, “Corps Exquis,” as a sextet, involving electronics.  Then listen to the Bar Kokhba Sextet playing music by John Zorn, from Book of Angels; the volume is titled “Lucifer.” The record is one of many in the 2nd part of his large “Masada” collection of pieces, all performed by other artists and ensembles.

Then hear chamber jazz from bassist/composer Stephan Crump’s Rosetta Trio and music (for sleeping) from the Swedish AKKU Quintet.  There’s also music from England’s Portico Quartet, including music for hang (drum.) along with the Austrian trombonist Christian Muthspiel and his quartet, riffing on music by John Dowland. Plus, more music from Daniel Wohl & members of TRANSIT, played on a bunch of melodicas.  Really.
