On this edition of New Sounds, John Schaefer welcomes Dutch ten-string Renaissance lute player Josef van Wissem, along with guitarist Gary Lucas, the NYC-based musician well known from his days with Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band. Together, on their unusual combination of instruments, they perform quirky original works live in the WNYC studio.
