Drummer Dave King (he of the Bad Plus) is also a pianist who leads the Dave King Trucking Company - what he calls his "Americana project." It's rock-based jazz married to traditional American folk music, or at least classic Nashville sounds of the '60s and '70s.  We'll sample some of this record - "Good Old Light" on this New Sounds.

Spacey Country Chamber Jazz (Encore Edition)

Friday, August 05, 2011

For this New Sounds, wander though European cities with the acoustic chamber jazz quartet Gato Libre from their latest effort, "Nomad." This band of Japanese musicians plays acoustic folk, using trumpet, guitar, bass, and accordion, doing tunes that mix up flamenco with Old World waltz, music that stirs up reggae with a touch of blues or a reel from a Scottish pub. Also, listen to country-swing folk jazz from the Tin Hat Trio (now operating as a quintet, and just Tin Hat) from their "Helium" release. Plus, there's the spacey countrified jazz from Bill Frisell's Quartet, and more.

Drummer Dave King (he of the Bad Plus) is also a pianist, and he leads the Dave King Trucking Company. King has just released a brand new record of rock-based jazz married to traditional American folk music, or at least classic Nashville sounds of the '60s and '70s.  We'll sample some of this latest release - "Good Old Light" on this New Sounds.  Plus, there's also music from like-minded ensembles, perhaps involving cellist Erik Friedlander and his "Block Ice & Propane, along with something from pipa player Wu Man and her Appalachian friends.  Also, listen for music from Bill Frisell, and something from the Tin Hat Trio, as a tribute to Bill Frisell.
