Emily Wells

It’s the most wonderful time of the month, it’s the new releases show for New Sounds. Listen to brand-new music from multi-instrumentalist/producer/composer and violinist Emily Wells and her record, “Promise.”

Hear some of a new work, “Let Me Tell You,” by Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen, with text by Paul Griffiths, lifted from Shakespeare.  There’s also new music from Gogo Penguin, an acoustic piano trio in the vein of the Bad Plus, Dawn of Midi, or the Neil Cowley Trio.

Plus, listen to new music from drummer/composer Glenn Kotche’s forthcoming record, “Drumkit Quartets,” featuring So Percussion, and a marvelous arrangement of the folk song “Shenandoah” from saxophonist Charles Lloyd & the Marvels, featuring Bill Frisell.
