New Music for Sax(es)


For this New Sounds, we'll sample some music from the incredibly versatile Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society - it's a big band that dips into jazz territory and the minimalist section of new music - and has just released a brand new recording, called "Infernal Machines."

Also, there are songs and poetry about the Q train from saxophonist/composer Roy Nathanson, music from Sex Mob, something from  drummer/composer John Hollenbeck, and more.
