New Music for Trumpet

Listen to a bit of new music for trumpet and electronics by Nils Petter Molvaer, from his 2011 record, “Baboon Moon,” on this New Sounds program.  There’s also music from a lovely collaboration record between a Senegalese singer/kora player Ablaye Cissoko and German-born trumpeter Volker Goetze, a late-night gem combining West African music and ethereal, atmospheric European jazz.

Plus, music from trumpeter Jon Hassell, and some music from Codona, featuring Don Cherry.
