It's that time of the month already!  John Schaefer once again picks through the spring flood of CDs that have been sent to his office to find new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's program.  Among these outstanding piles is a new work from Roswell Rudd that features some musicians from West African and a new recording from Vieux Farka Toure, featuring his father, Ali Farka Toure. Also, hear music from a Greek group called Lüüp, and something from Montreallers, Esmerine, who just released a record in memory of Lhasa.  Plus, a collaborative record from dueling keyboardists Aaron Goldberg and Guillermo Klein, and music from a Swiss piano trio based on Turkish music.
