« previous episode | next episode »

Monday, May 05, 2008

From the New Sounds Live Concert Series, listen to Frank London's extraordinary score to I.L. Peretz's sprawling 1907 Yiddish drama Bay Nakht afn Altn Mark. "A Night in the Old Marketplace" mixes folk, jazz, classical, rock and world music beats and comes away feeling like klezmer cabaret with a dose of Tom Waits.
