Sun Ra @100

Sunday, November 24, 2013

The cosmic composer/bandleader Sun Ra's big band space jazz might have been and still is pretty far out, but even Thelonious Monk agreed that it swings.  For this New Sounds, we'll hear music by Sun Ra, (he who claimed to be of the "Angel Race" and that he was from Saturn, not our planet Earth), done up by other ensembles.  We'll listen to the Heliocentrics & the Respect Sextet, along with Your Neighborhood Saxophone Quartet.  Plus we'll hear Sun Ra's music as rendered by the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble, and many others.

Music With Folk Roots

Friday, June 07, 2013

Listen to ensemble pieces which incorporate or draw from the folk music of several different parts of the world on this New Sounds program.  There’s music by the Alaev Family band from Tajikistan collaborating with Israeli musician Tamir Muskat from the band Balkan Beat Box.   Also, hear music that simulates the sound of Norwegian folk fiddling.  It’s the work of Princeton University professor Dan Trueman, founder of the Princeton Laptop Orchestra and a Norwegian hardanger fiddle specialist together with So Percussion.
