From

Listen to cross-cultural music, from a 1979 album by Codona, along with newly released music (2015) from the Bay area trio, Bolo, on this New Sounds.  Hear music from the innovative trio Codona (Collin Walcott, Don Cherry, Nana Vasconcelos) from their self-titled record which brings together Brazil, Africa, and India. Then, listen to Bolo, a trio of multi-instrumentalists whose music draws upon traditions of West Africa, North Africa, Turkey, and India as well as jazz, funk and soul music.  Then there’s music from the Southern Italian seven piece band and dancer, Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino and their lament about the plight of Mediterranean migrants, “Solo andata,” or “One Way Ticket.” Plus, hear Ornette Coleman’s “Lonely Woman,” as rendered by the team of trumpeter Don Cherry, tenor saxophonist Dewey Redman, bassist Charlie Haden, and drummer Ed Blackwell. Together, the group was called Old and New Dreams and all four musicians were Ornette Coleman Quartet alumni.
