New Jazz or Nu-Jazz?

Monday, March 12, 2007

New Sounds asks the question and hears the answer from a variety of duos and trios. Listen to music from guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel and drummer Brian Blade, falling somewhere between a songlike worldfolk and bouncy Afrobeat with swing. There's also the rock-jazz of The Bad Plus, the trippy expansive sounds of the Benevento Russo Duo, the Neil Cowley Trio, and more.
