March 22: Gordon Grdina

On this Tuesday's show, my guest will be guitarist and oud player Gordon Grdina from Vancouver. A student of Gary Peacock, his sound combines mainstream jazz, free-form improvisation, and Arabic and Persian classical music, which he notably explores with his ten-piece powerhouse, Haram. He's in Brooklyn this week with shows at Barbes Agency (Thursday for the 2nd Oud Summit) and ShapeShifter Lab (Friday) and he'll be joining me on Radio Free Brooklyn this Tuesday 6-8PM EST, streaming at www.rfb.nyc.
