Away From Jazz

« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, January 15, 2009

For this New Sounds, get a load of jazz musicians stepping away from the jazz tradition. There's music from clarinetist Beth Custer and pianist Marco Benevento. Plus, "C'mon, it's only a dollar" from the punkass jazz melody-makers known as Gutbucket off of their latest release, "A Modest Proposal." Also, we'll hear from the latest by Matthew Shipp, called "Harmony and Abyss" and much more.

Check out "Bobby McFerrin: VOCAbuLarieS". Amazing chorale-based CD that I just heard, and really fits with your "Away from Jazz" topic. Mostly composed, based on McFerrin motiffs and ostinatos.
