Mighty Winds

Listen to the clarinet textures and eerie cello of Erik Friedlander's recent release Prowl, along with other arresting combinations of instruments like kora, saxophone and Slovenian music, all artfully woven together from Igor Leonardi. Plus, hear music from Canadian saxophonist Quinsin Nachoff, whose release Magic Numbers combines an improvisational sax jazz trio and a neo-classical string quartet for a catchy funky sinewy twist into worlds between Sabbath and Stravinsky. Rounding out the show is music from Robert Stillman, whose wind-driven music contains brilliant melodic washes and Twin Peaks-y buildups.
