New Releases June 2007

It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully sorts through the stacks, and boatloads of new CDs which have come across his desk over the past month to present some of the finest new releases. What we can see of his desk from here includes a newcomer from Kenya, Kenge Kenge, Bob Brozman Orchestra and a really fabulous new release by the primitive guitar-whiz James Blackshaw. All this and much more.
