Listen to small ensembles (septets or smaller) with a big sound for this New Sounds show. Hear music from a film score for a comedy featuring small ensemble music by English guitarist/pianist/composer James Blackshaw. The noirish score includes bowed guitar and bass, violin, vibraphone, flute, drums and electronics, and draws from Brazilian guitar music, musique concrete, and French impressionist composers.

There’s also recent  music from the New York group, Bing & Ruth, with two clarinets, two basses, a cello, piano and processing, and their piece, “Police Police Police Police Police.” Listen to orchestrated jazz-pop music from a double album, “In the Ivory” by Chicago-based bassist/composer Matt Ulery, featuring the chamber group eighth blackbird. Then, hear garage-chamber jazz-tronica from the New York septet The Cellar and Point, featuring members of the Jack Quartet, Mivos Quartet, TRANSIT, and Signal Ensemble. Plus new music from The Bad Plus, and their record, “Inevitable Western,” and more.
