Hear new music for brass, some martial, some big band jazz, and music by David Byrne inspired by the Dirty Dozen Brass Band of New Orleans, and more on this New Sounds Program.  Then it's high-spirited music from Lester Bowie's Brass Fantasy along with a work by Karlheinz Stockhausen, covered by the Respect Sextet. Plus, music by Charles Mingus, as played by Either/Orchestra out of Cambridge, MA.  There's also music from Montreal's Ratchet Orchestra as well as something from the Clubfoot Orchestra, and a work by Carla Bley.
