For this New Sounds program, listen to a suite of pieces by Caroline Shaw, a member of the vocal ensemble, Roomful of Teeth. All of the movements in her suite are named after baroque dance forms, how J.S. Bach and other baroque composers might have done.  Hear those forms echoed in the music of Paul Lansky, and Ralph Towner, along with lute player and composer Rolf Lislevand, and the late Englishman Jon Lord. And more.

The Music We're Most Pumped About for 2014

While everyone was compiling their year-end-lists on deadline, or submitting their 2014 previews, we’ve had the luxury of no one demanding such things from us.  Now, really, the only joy in these sorts of exercises might be taunting John Schaefer with the freer time which comes from not hosting two daily shows (& countless other events), and then finally feeling guilty enough to share the things that the staff stumbled upon while not compiling Listener Poll data. Just to defy low expectations, and to continue to avoid actually BEING on air, here's another in the series of "Rogue" New Sounds Staff posts and it's a long one - in two parts.

I downloaded Roomful of Teeth, so no notes. Therefore, I found this show very informative, very helpful. Thank you.
