Program #2023

Drummers who compose: they're a flourishing breed, and the subject of this installment of New Sounds. Among today's leading drummer/composers is Bobby Previte, who frequently records with such figures as John Zorn, Marty Ehrlich, and the New York Composers Orchestra. He's also devoted his talents to film and opera scores. John Hollenbeck has an equally varied musical background, and his "Foreva" with its exotic rhythms and wordless vocals suggests the music of Don Cherry. Other highlights include Los Angeles-based Alex Cline, who has won acclaim for his latest release, "The Constant Flame," and the multi-stylistic skins players, Jack DeJohnette and Glen Velez.
