Tonight's Spinning On Air features a wide range of recordings, including some "Happy Technology" music written in about 1960 by Danish composer Ib Glindemann. Also, the group The Four Bags will perform in the WNYC studio. They play trombone, electric guitar, accordion, and sax, and make that odd combination work really well on original material as well as music by The Beach Boys, XTC, and Chopin.
Ib Glindemann is widely regarded as the finest bandleader, arranger and composer on the contemporary Danish jazz scene. He has also scored countless movies, several of these being Hollywood productions. His Danish-language Web site includes touring and recording information.

The New York-based ensemble Four Bags perform mostly original music composed by members of the group, but they are also fond of slipping in covers which range from the music of Brian Wilson to Kurt Weill. Additional information can be found here.
