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.

New Releases, June 2013

Friday, June 28, 2013

It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully separates the wheat from the chaff for this show.  He'll sort through the stacks of new CDs, the Soundcloud files, and other digital submissions which have come across his desk and into his inbox over the past month to present some of the finest new releases. He'll skim off the cream. He'll pick the lentils from the ashes. You get it. 

Hear music from the Mobius Trio, who make new guitar ensemble music, along with multi-layered 6-string magic from Ben Brody.   Then, listen to Dawn of Midi, who make groove music that sounds as though it is electronica, but it's made acoustically.  Also, hear the bayan, an accordion-like instrument, as it is used in the Bester Quartet. Plus, music from Philippe Petit which may or may not involve electric cymbalum, triple caterpillar drum guitar, and/or electric psalterion.
