You'll hear traces of jazz and blues in works that Steve Seel has in store in the first hour, from composers including Derek Bermel, William Bolcom, Paul Bowles, and Valerie Coleman in her amazing tour-de-force "Shotgun Houses." In the second hour, Steve features different uses of the electric guitar -- in contemporary works from the likes of Steve Reich, Bryce Dessner, and Jascha Narveson.
