#3659: Sax Leads the Way

Email a Friend
Tamar Osborn

 Hear some sax players leading the way on this edition of New Sounds, including new music from sax player Tamar Osborn and her London-based Afro-Eastern-space-jazz band, Collocutor.  Listen to their dreamy Turkish & Middle Eastern percussion meets Sun Ra jazz with electronics.  Then, there's lyrical and swinging new music from sax & clarinet wizard/composer Ken Thomson and his outfit Slow/Fast.  

Listen also to the brand new recording of the "Terminals" concertos by drummer/composer Bobby Previte for percussion ensemble and soloists, his "Terminal 2" for saxman Greg Osby.   The series of works was inspired by the schematic-like terminal maps that Previte has noticed in airports around the world.  The recording also features So Percussion.  Plus, there's music from Peter Gordon and Love Of Life Orchestra, and more.
