Hear an hour of global jazz on this New Sounds program, with unlikely combinations of instruments and worldwide influences colliding in unexpected and striking ways. Listen to pianist and composer Vijay Iyer's "Playlist For An Extreme Occasion," an eight-part work written for Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble.  It began as a musical interaction between sheng, tabla, and gaita, which evolved into an intricate suite for piano, gaita, percussion, tabla, sheng, violin, viola and cello.  (Vijay Iyer is also the recipient of the 2013 MacArthur Fellowship, the so-called "genius" grant.)
