New Sounds presents a program of unusual arrangements of pre-existing works. Listen to Burt Bacharach's opulent brand of Sixties-pop, which has found a new audience thanks to the experimentation of Elvis Costello and avant-jazz guitarist Bill Frisell. Hear the Tiny Bell Trio along with trumpeter Dave Douglas reworking traditional East European folk music in its "Songs of Wandering Souls". Plus, sample some of the Absolute Ensemble's Fix, a disc which features "remixes" of traditional classical repertoire.
