In Your Ear Episode 22: Brittany Haas, Jordan Tice and Paul Kowert

Thu, 01/23/2014 - 9:50am -- WCVE

We’ll spend our full hour with three gifted and creative young musicians who have established themselves as prominent players in the firmament of today’s Blu2grassers in Brooklyn community. Try to turn up the volume and turn down the distractions, and savor the tasteful musical gifts of guitarist Jordan Tice, acoustic bassist Paul Kowert and fiddler Brittany Haas.

In Your Ear Episode 21: THIEFS; Nu-Blu

Wed, 01/22/2014 - 12:11pm -- WCVE

In Your Ear presents some of the most striking and innovative sounds ever heard in Studio A from the New York based trio THIEFS. Not thieves…but THIEFS. As the group says, THIEFS is a grammatically incoherent jazz bastardization, and as you’ll hear, this acoustic/electronic amalgam is tough to put into words. With drums, bass, sax and vocals, THIEFS take us to places that are both noisy and dreamy. It’s quite a ride, so be prepared.

In Your Ear Episode 20: Atlantic Chamber Ensemble; Jimmy Gaudreau and Moondi Klein

Wed, 01/22/2014 - 10:57am -- WCVE

Rather than release yet another new album in 2012 , musical innovator and provocateur Beck Hanson decided to release only the sheet music in an elaborate and elegant package called The Song Reader, where he basically said if you want to hear this, you have to play it yourself.

Listen Globally/Listen Locally

Listen: Ok, sure, I just borrowed that opener ("Listen") from the great Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. And with all due respect to the legacy of Mr. Vonnegut, I think he'd be OK with me snaking that line for this week's World Music Show blog (1/18). And, I'm sure you'll forgive me for tweaking the headline a bit from "Think Globally/Act Locally," to what you see above. Again, I think everyone will be OK with that. The reason being is that there is some great World Music to be found right here in RVA.
