Bassoon rock. Chamber jazz. Delicate drums. Paradoxes or Post-Rock? That's for you to enjoy and if you like, decide, on this edition of New Sounds. Recorded from a recent New Sounds Live event at Merkin Hall, listen to concert hall instruments doing the rock thing, rock instruments plucked and finessed in something of a classical vein, and experimental music veering in a jazz improv way. This is part two of the concert, where you can hear some of each set of music from the Kentucky ensemble Rachel’s and NY-based group Clogs, plus a special encore tune.

I was just looking for some music on the radio. I kept thinking this is so pretty what is it? I am making coffee just stay awake and listen to this or maybe I should fall asleep and dream to it. Sincerely Jennifer
