New Sounds

With John Zorn

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Composer, producer, performer, conductor, record label founder, and musical ringleader John Zorn (add “genius” in there too – he was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship) joins us for this New Sounds program to present selections from his massive Masada Project, Book 2: Book of Angels.  Comprised of over 300 tunes, the Book of Angels is inspired by traditional Jewish music and at various points combines jazz with elements of psych-rock, many world music traditions, brass band parades, and thrash metal.  On the occasion of his 60th birthday, Zorn came by the studio to present music from just some of the recordings of The Book of Angels.  Listen to selections by Secret Chiefs (members of Mr. Bungle), pianist Uri Caine, Pat Metheny, the Masada Quintet featuring Joe Lovano, Mycale (a vocal quartet), cellist Erik Friedlander, and many others.  The rest of the music, which was too much to fit into one New Sounds show is part of this Bonus Podcast.

More Cross-Cultural Music

Sunday, July 28, 2013

German percussionist and producer Sven Kacirek collected field recordings from his travels along the Kenyan coast and in the hinterland near Lake Victoria.  Then, with a bit of studio wizardry, he layered marimba, piano, and various other percussion atop the Kenyan musicians.  We’ll listen to this musical journey through Kenya for this New Sounds program.

Middle Eastern ChamberLoungeJazz

Saturday, March 10, 2012

For this New Sounds show, we’ll hear some Middle Eastern chamber/lounge/world/jazz. It’s hard to know what to call it, but it’s music with a decided Arabic flavor.  Listen to the Canadian trio Cordâme (augmented by percussionists and a guitarist) dance around Ellington and Ravel while incorporating Persian music, Indian music, Armenian and African music.
