December 2009 New Releases

John Schaefer sifts through the steady stream of CDs that have flooded his office to find a sampling of new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's New Sounds program. Hopefully we'll hear some Slow Six, some Don Byron as played by Lisa Moore, and perhaps remixes of Veljo Tormis' music.
