On this week's show

Composed in Berlin, recorded in New York, this gorgeously impressionistic new album recorded with his trio in New York swept up the field when it was announced in Wellington last weekend. Plus: everything else he’s up to at the moment, including his soundtrack to Pork Pie and previews of his brand new Jonathan Crayford Biggish Band and Fazioli, his solo piano project in Spain.

Plus in the second hour I’m donning a superman costume for Michael Daugherty’s super-powerful Metropolis symphony and in NMD Ryan’s previewing Async, the wonderful new album from Ryuchi Sakamoto.
