by the New Sounds Staff —
There’s been too much quiet for too long from the impatient staff. During the brief hiatus, the softball season began, and was then disrupted. (Go NYPR Independents!) The recently-hobbled and still impatient-to-recover staff has had a lot of fun on the internets while trying her level best to bounce back. Here’s a sampling of musical things that brought joy and delight while icing and elevating. Maybe someday John Schaefer will get a chance to hear them.

For this New Sounds show, we’ll hear some Middle Eastern chamber/lounge/world/jazz. It’s hard to know what to call it, but it’s music with a decided Arabic flavor. Listen to the Canadian trio Cordâme (augmented by percussionists and a guitarist) dance around Ellington and Ravel while incorporating Persian music, Indian music, Armenian and African music.
