Program #2289

It's that time again for the monthly program of new releases. John Schaefer picks through the bucketloads of CDs that have flooded his office to find new releases worthy of showcasing on this New Sounds program. Chances are that there'll be music from Stephen Scott and the Bowed Piano Ensemble, improvised works from jazz guitarist Andreas Willers, and a mini-sampler of music from the "Stans" -Afghanistan and Kazahkstan, among others.
