Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

Andrew Lamb, New Orleans Suite

Andrew Lamb, a jazz saxophonist and flautist who heavily influenced New York City's avant-garde community in the 70s, sits down with music aficionado and concert producer Glenn Leslie to discuss his beginnings in music and where his talent has taken him. In the past Lamb has won a Brooklyn Arts Council grant for his work, has been a member of the Cecil Taylor band, and frequently performed at New York City's annual Vision Festival since 1996. According to Steve Loewy of Allmusic.com, "Lamb's detailed liner notes describe a serious musician seeking to uplift his soul through art, and... Lamb's vehicle is the psalm-like expression of his tenor saxophone." If you'd like to read more of Loewy's review just click here. Tracks included in this show feature pieces from Lamb's album New Orleans Suite, "Rescue Me" and "Katrina's Path" as well as songs like "Hues of Destiny" and "Dogon." Enjoy!

This program is dedicated to the producer's favorite girl, Jeanne Leslie.


Experimental Composers


The object of this series is to invite emerging and established innovators to share their work. These programs are usually a combination of an interview with a far-reaching perspective on the artist's career, some recordings illustrating this history, and something new. Open territory. The unfortunate and unintended messages that come attached to a title like Experimental Composers are many. Still it is one of the few labels to come out of the world of music that has not been co-opted by promoters, corporations, journalists, or lawyers. This one just seems to have anti-market goo on it. Hooray. It's also just bad English (as if to imply that these poor souls are themselves, in their flesh and blood, some kind of experiment and, perhaps, even expendable). And then there is the spectre of defying the wisdom of the great Edgar Varèse who said something like, "I do not write experimental music. My experimenting is done before I make the music. Afterwards it is the listener who must experiment."
