Drummers / Bandleaders

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

For this New Sounds, hear all sorts of drummer-led bands and ensembles, including music from composer/percussionist Susie Ibarra, alternative/avant-jazzer Jim Black, Afrobeat progenitor/drummer Tony Allen who played with Fela Kuti, and many others. There’s music from the brand-new record, “Drum Codes” by Electric Kulintang, which features co-leader Susie Ibarra on those traditional metallic gong-like percussion instruments of the Philippines and her percussionist/programmer husband, Cuban-American Roberto Rodriguez.

Blast the Horns

Monday, August 19, 2013

For this New Sounds program, listen to the blistering horns of party bands from the world over.  There’s Afro-pop from veteran of Ghanaian highlife Ebo Taylor and his German band, featuring the godfather of Afro-beat drumming, Tony Allen.  Hopefully we'll hear something from the marching band madness that is the Chicago-based outfit Mucca Pazza (P.S. - you HAVE to check their outfits when they perform!), Frank London's Klezmer Brass All-Stars, some Ethiojazz, and maybe something from Lester Bowie’s Brass Fantasy.
