This New Sounds program focuses on tunes that are hard to pin down, and always limn the boundaries between all sorts of jazz.  Listen to the Artichaut Orkestra, who mix klezmer and classical into their freewheeling originals, incorporating furious accordion, a weepy clarinet, and electric guitar.  Then, there’s a jazz trio from Portugal, LAMA, whose double-bassist loops his rhythmic lines, assisted by a pedal box, while the trumpet is digitally processed in real time, all aided by groovy drums.
