King Ayisoba, Adrian Sherwood, Tom Challenger

Max Reinhardt presents collaboration session from King Ayisoba, Adrian Sherwood and Tom Challenger. Plus a new electroacoustic work by Michael Pisaro and a Shirley Horn classic.

A collaboration session capturing the first meeting of musicians from different musical realms: Ghanaian master kologo player King Ayisoba, dub producer Adrian Sherwood, and improvising reeds player Tom Challenger. Recorded at the BBC's Maida Vale studios, it also features multi-instrumentalist Skip McDonald, aka 'Little Axe'.

Also tonight, sit tight for 'a very long song' as Max Reinhardt selects a new work by US composer Michael Pisaro, collaborating with electronics trio Colectivo MaDam to create an epic built solely from held notes and silences. Plus, psychedelic spoken-word wanderings and synthy vamps from cult American band Sun City Girls, and an intimate recitation by pianist and vocalist Shirley Horn.

Produced by Chris Elcombe for Reduced Listening.
