Experience various soundscapes on this edition of New Sounds. Listen to the latest percussive soundscapes from Mecca Bodega, from their sometimes trance-jazzy release, "Skin." Plus, there's drummer/composer Bobby Previte's chamber improvisations from a piece called "Mirror, Mirror." Also on this program of soundscapes, sample the layered saxophone of Jan Garbarek from "All Those Born With Wings," a recording from 1986. Rounding out the hour are the quiet reflective pairings of guitar with horn on Ralph Towner's "Rumours of Rain," and lots more.
