There’s new music from the California Guitar Trio on this New Sounds show, from their recent release, “Andromeda,” which has the talented and crafty guitarists playing with effects, keyboard textures, and a guest musician – Tony Levin of King Crimson.  We’ll hear their Reichian “Improv 8: Layered Circulation” and possibly some fingerstylin’ middle-eastern influenced tunes as well.

Caravan Variations

Monday, August 09, 2010

Like camels slogging through the sand, the exotic strains of “Caravan,” by Duke Ellington and his sometime trombonist Juan Tizol (with rarely heard lyrics by Irving Mills), have been played loose, fast, swinging, and/or slow by just about everyone. For this New Sounds program, it’s another of the occasional series of programs of Theme and Variations, where the premise is simple: take a single piece of music and explore what a number of musicians have done with it, through arrangements, deconstructions, and revisions of the original theme.
