South African guitarist Guy Buttery in the studio with John Schaefer for tonight’s New Sounds.  After one of the tunes, Schaefer exclaims, “that is insane! …I have never seen anybody do what you just did in the middle of that piece there.”  Lap-steel meets zither in an extended tapping technique combined with finger-picking on guitar.

Suffice it to say, there’s a lot of guitar as percussion instrument - making the secret drummer inside of host John Schaefer VERY happy. 

Sax/clarinet-led quartet with tuba and TWO drummers.  Sold! Think David Krakauer/klezmer-jazz fused with a second line doing a Mission Impossible scene.

Sons Of Kemet debut album ‘Burn’ out 09/09/13 on Naim Jazz Records.

The staff is at it again.  Stockpiling all of the good music until it is time…

Doing things a little bit out of sequence: bonus podcast first, interview with John Zorn tomorrow night on New Sounds. 

Hey - Am I right that the Zorn show (not the podcast) will be airing tomorrow - 9/12?

Right you are, markallender.  Interview and everything. 11PM.
