This April 26, 1990 edition of New Sounds spans a wide and fascinating stylistic gamut, from the Korean-born komungo player Jin Hi Kim, to guitarist Jed Mathews, to the Tibetan Singing Bowl Ensemble led by Raphael Mostel. The show kicks off with a November 1985 performance by Ben Tavera King, long a fixture on the Tex-Mex scene whose style incorporates elements of flamenco, American Indian music, and dare we say - New Age. We also feature the Mikel Rouse Broken Consort, an ensemble that made a number of visits to the WNYC studios in the late 1980s, undergoing a number of personnel changes during this time. We hear "Ranger," a bracing blend of composed and improvised forms.
