It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully sorts through the stacks, and boatloads of new CDs which have actually reached his desk over the past month to present some of the finest new releases. What we can see from here includes some music from the Toronto-based Eastern European folk-klezmer band, Beyond the Pale, as well as some downtown-y Slovakian Arabic jazz-folk music from the outfit called TriBeCaStan. Also, there's Jewish-Cuban tasty grooves from percussionist Roberto Rodriguez, and Graham Fitkin's piano music played by Danny Holt. And more.
