On this edition of New Sounds, listen to an in-studio performance by the group Zum, an international guitar ensemble consisting of members of Robert Fripp’s League of Crafty Guitarists. The members of ZUM have been working in Guitar Craft for nearly a decade and have a knack for gorgeous and dynamic arrangements of works by Astor Piazzolla, the Beatles, and a wide range inbetween. Also on the program, there’s music from Bigtime, another international group who have worked in Guitar Craft, (they would have joined us live too, but for visa troubles), and more.
