Moody Works for Trumpet or Sax

Friday, June 20, 2014

Listen to an hour of moody nocturnal works that grow out of the jazz tradition on this New Sounds.  Hear music based on a silent film score, “Wind” by Ibrahim Maalouf, an American trumpeter who plays a quarter-tone trumpet.  Then there’s also music from a collaborative record by Afro-Cuban pianist Omar Sosa and the Italian trumpeter Paolo Fresu.  Plus, listen to music by Wadada Leo Smith about the struggle for civil rights from a 4 CD set, “Ten Freedom Summers.” And more.

New Music for Sax(es)

Sunday, June 26, 2011

For this New Sounds, we'll sample some music from the recording, "Infernal Machines" by the incredibly versatile Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, a big band that dips into jazz territory and the minimalist section of new music.  Also, there are songs and poetry about the Q train from saxophonist/composer Roy Nathanson, music from Sex Mob, something from  drummer/composer John Hollenbeck, and more.
