Unpopular Music - October 21, 2017

Playing tracks by

Mulatu Astatke, Henry Threadgill's Air, Yo La Tengo, Mokoomba, Holger Czukay and more.

After immersing myself in Monk last week, the temptation to make this week's program out of last week's leftovers was rather strong. The temptation became even stronger as the time and energy to assemble a new program was getting shorter. So while there's one leftover, we have a somewhat arbitrary assortment of jazz, afro-pop, electronic, film music and a contemporary classical extravaganza.

Plus, if you love bass solos, well the second set is for you.


Magda Brand-Ortiz de Zevallos

Loved the selection, Fred. Holger Czukay and Mikis Theodorakis tracks are great. This last is ravishing.
Always good to listen to Arvo Pärt. This year many good musicians are coming to the JAZZNOJAZZ festival in Zürich. One of those is Mulatu Astatke. I have tickets! Cheers. P.S. I bought the album from Shirley Scott. Waiting for it : )


Enjoyed the symphonic section thanks
