Reeds Lead

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Hear ensemble music led by the sounds of wind instruments like clarinet, saxophone, and bass clarinet, along with a little bit of brassy-ness from trumpets and trompbones.  There’s music from England by the jazz-rock-electronica quartet Get the Blessing, from their recent release, “Lope and Antilope.”  Portishead fans take note, the bass player and drummer are Jim Barr and Clive Deamer, respectively. (Fun Fact: since 2012, Deamer has been Radiohead's second live drummer.) Also, hear a soaring saxophone in a piece from the Portico Quartet, whose rhythm section includes the hang. Then, listen to music featuring bass clarinet by Parisian-born Brooklyn-based composer Daniel Wohl as well as an arrangement for trumpets and trombone of music by Wayne Horvitz.
