The Checkout: May 5, 2009
In this show, guitarist Julian Lage and his band join us in the studio to play a song from Lage’s debut recording, Sounding Point, as well as two exclusive new songs. We talk to Branford Marsalis about his new quartet recording, Metamorphosen. Marsalis also shares a playlist of some of his favorite popular recodings from the 1970s. Finally, we hear new music from Infernal Machines, the debut record from Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society. Meet the bright young composer who’s (steam)punking the jazz orchestra.
