#3643: New Releases, September 2014

Email a Friend

It's the most wonderful time of the month - the showcasing of new releases! On this New Sounds program, listen to the music that won this year’s Pulitzer Prize: “Become Ocean” by John Luther Adams. We'll only have time for an excerpt from the work, but will feature it in full this coming Friday, October 3.  Also, hear music from a special commemorative release issued by the Metropolitan Museum for an exhibit, "The Sacred Lute," about the Iranian musician and mystic Ostad Elahi.

There’s new music from Brooklyn Rider, from their terrific new album, “Almanac” of commissions, each inspired by a different artist. (Read John Schaefer’s review here.) Hear their playful “Ping Pong Fumble Thaw” by drummer/composer Glenn Kotche. Then, hear new music by John Zorn from the Gnostic Trio, which consists of guitarist Bill Frisell, harpist Carol Emanuel, and Kenny Wollesen on vibraphone. Plus, listen to a blend of South Indian classical music & jazz from the Indian-American violinist Arun Ramamurthy and his trio, along with party music from the five-piece Boston-based Cocek! Brass Band.
