Rich Halley, Satoko Fuji, Ramon Lopez & More

Click the play button to listen

Those artists who have been able to sustain long careers and consistently move the music forward must be celebrated, and this episode recognizes two such examples who have new recordings out at the moment: Be Known: Ancient/Future/Music from Chicago's Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, the group put together in 1976 by percussionist Kahil El'Zabar, and Terra Incognita from tenor saxophonist Rich Halley who decided to head to New York to hook up with musicians there. There's much to like in both albums.

Satoko Fujii has been pushing the envelope throughout her career and she's at her improvising best on her latest release where she's joined by Spanish percussionist Ramon Lopez. More music from European artists are featured as well: the Polish Oles Brothers, trumpeter Christof Mahnig and his Die Abmahnung from Switzerland, Zwitschermaschine from Germany and Native Speaker from The Netherlands. The wrap comes courtesy of Denmark's Jakob Bro.
