New Releases September 2009

It's that time of the month again! John Schaefer showcases all the latest new releases that have come across his desk (and made it ALL THE WAY OFF of the desk, in fact!) We'll hear the latest from the South African guitarist Guy Buttery, "Fox Hill Lane," and perhaps something from the latest, "Taketron" by the Balkan-Gypsy Funk band Slavic Soul Party. Also, we have high hopes to hear some of the latest digitial-only release of music for dance from dub/classical/avant/laptop jazz composer Chris Becker, along with a selection from the new Tzadik release of music for string quartet by violist/composer/improviser Jessica Pavone. And more.
