BBC Radio 3 Freeness: Regenerated Classics

Corey Mwamba presents artists playing with traditional forms, plus, a lost live performance. Multi-instrumentalist Amina Claudine Myers breathes new life and meaning into an old spiritual through questioning vocals and her indomitable piano performance. 

The sprawling Go: Organic Orchestra – led by creative director and percussionist Adam Rudolph – joins forces with the Brooklyn Raga Massive to form a super collective experimenting with Indian classical music. And we time-travel back to the 1970s, a time of countercultural folk currents, via an exhilarating, previously unheard live performance from the iconic but short-lived band, Splinters. This previously unreleased recording was made with a line-up of eminent players included trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, alto saxophonist, Trevor Watts, Tubby Hayes, pianist Stan Tracey, bassist Jeff Clyne, and two drummers, Phil Seamen and John Stevens.
