Program #2090

New Sounds presents its monthly look at new releases from across a broad spectrum, including Paul Lansky's "Alphabet Book," (pictured) a suite of ten brand new pieces inspired by the TV show, Sesame Street. Meredith Monk's eighth recording for ECM, "mercy," began its life as a multi-media stage work which Monk realized together with noted installation artist Ann Hamilton. It arrives just prior to her 60th birthday. Senegalese pop musician Youssou N'Dour inaugurates a new contract with Nonesuch Records in "Nothing's In Vain." We also hear Michelle DiBucci's "Wendigo" (Pacific Time) Steve Gorn's "Colors of the Mind," and Orchestra Baobob's "Specialist In All Styles," among other recordings.
