Program #1911

New Sounds takes a listen to Klezmer influenced music on this episode. Kroke is a klezmer band from Kraków, Poland. Their CD, The Sounds of the Vanishing World features song titles like "Earth," "Air", "Time," and "Dance," reflecting a concern with and social issues. Also, trumpeter, bandleader and composer Dave Douglas presents a strange and compelling mix of tango, Eastern European folk, and klezmer, all in the framework of the New York downtown jazz scene. Highlighting his disc, A Thousand Evenings, is "The Branches, Pt. 2," featuring accordion player Guy Klucevsek.
