Cécile Schott, working under the moniker "Colleen," has crafted elegant, barely-there compositions on her latest release, “The Golden Morning Breaks.” On this edition of New Sounds, sample from some of these textured soundscapes of muted moods and ethereal melodies. Also, listen to free-flowing music from Keith Jarrett’s recording, “Spirits,” on which he overdubbed himself playing tabla, shakers, recorders, flutes, and piano. Plus, hear improvised duo music by jazz-rock musician Keith Tippett, together with his vocalist wife Julie Tippett who is likely to play thumb piano, wind chimes, recorder and everything else. And, of course, much more.

WNYC FM 93.9 has two programs by cellists tonight: New Sounds (live at 11pm, archived on web) has pice by Colleen; Erik Friedlander, cellist-composer, is highlighted on Evening Music (possibly at 9pm).

I may go to the Locrian program, with George Crumb's vocal cycle tonight, Sat. Aug. 25 at 8pm at the Riverside (10th floor chapel). The Arabian Nights program at Damrosch Park Kristjan Jarvi's Absolute Ensemble) may be too hot; soprano Elizabeth Farnum, who's singing Crumb's spirituals, is a fine artist.
