Pianist Larry Karush’s roots embrace jazz, 20th century Western classical music, African-based percussion, and the music of North India. On this edition of New Sounds, Program #2340, he visits the studio to talk about improvising on themes from Arabic, Appalachian, and his original compositions. Plus, hear the latest from master Lebanese oud player and “the Bob Dylan of the Middle East,” Marcel Khalife, whose new release, “Caress” puts his two sons to work on piano, and percussion.
