Postminimal Piano

Saturday, March 02, 2013

For this New Sounds, listen to some of the self-dubbed “ritual groove” of Pianist Nik Bärtsch's Ronin, a chamber jazz outfit who mix minimalism and James Brown liberally.  We’ll hear from the latest album “Llyria,” named after a luminous sea creature.

Piano Poems

Monday, October 08, 2012

Influenced by Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett (without the moans), Portuguese jazz pianist and film score composer Bernardo Sassetti brings the surrealistic and ethereal to the trio setting.  We’ll hear from his latest release, “Motion” on this New Sounds – maybe an arrangement of Sparklehorse , or perhaps Federico Mompou.

Glass Bead Game

Sunday, September 04, 2011

The UK guitarist and composer James Blackshaw is a prodigious young talent who’s been seen as part of the guitar tradition of the late American John Fahey.  Now, his work has expanded to include mysticism, occasional other instruments, and long-form, almost classical structures.  He’ll play live in our studio, and we'll listen to some of his recent release, "The Glass Bead Game."  And more.
