Blast the Horns

Monday, August 19, 2013

For this New Sounds program, listen to the blistering horns of party bands from the world over.  There’s Afro-pop from veteran of Ghanaian highlife Ebo Taylor and his German band, featuring the godfather of Afro-beat drumming, Tony Allen.  Hopefully we'll hear something from the marching band madness that is the Chicago-based outfit Mucca Pazza (P.S. - you HAVE to check their outfits when they perform!), Frank London's Klezmer Brass All-Stars, some Ethiojazz, and maybe something from Lester Bowie’s Brass Fantasy.

Now, if only he could find the desk, which is approaching nearly 2/3 the height achieved back at the old office at Centre Street.
