Death Jazz Piano Trio

Sunday, August 14, 2011

For this New Sounds, London-based death-jazz band The Neil Cowley Trio stopped by the studio on their first US tour.  Listen to their incredibly tight and thoughtful originals like "His Nibs" and "She Eats Flies" performed live on this program.  It's some groove-based post-jazz with an Eastern edge that demands your attention.  RIYL: the Bad Plus, Shostakovich, Madness, thrash-punk, Thelonious Monk, The Sex Pistols, Philip Glass.

Postminimal Piano

Monday, November 01, 2010

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.
