   Jazz & Improvisation

Billington / Shippy / Wyche: [CASSETTE w/ DOWNLOAD CODE]
(Astral Spirits)

A Chicago trio that blends jazzrock, noise and experimental approaches to free improvisation, from drummer Ben Billington (Tiger Hatchery), guitarist Daniel Wyche (US Maple, Invisible Things), and guitarist Mark Shippy (US Maple, Invisible Things), an upbeat and unflagging display of sound in three recordings that lace a consistently controlled chaos.

Butcher, John / Damon Smith / Weasel Walter: The Catastrophe of Minimalism
(Balance Point Acoustics)

A great trio of free improvising innovators--John Butcher on soprano and tenor sax, Damon Smith on double bass, field recordings and lloopp, and Weasel Walter on percussion--for a live set at 21 Grand Oakland in California, 5 improvisations with unexpected twists and turns, never overly agressive but always absorbing in their unique approach to their instruments.

Crispell, Marilyn / Gerry Hemingway: Table of Changes (Live)

Both former alumni of Anthony Braxton ensembles, the partnership of Marilyn Crispell on piano and Gerry Hemingway on drums is captured live in 2013 during their 2013 European tour, with tracks from Austria, France, and Amsterdam including the Europa Jazz Festival in Le Mans, France, for 11 highly attuned improvisations of masterful playing and dialog.

De Dionyso, Arrington / Ted Byrnes: The Ballot or The Bullet [CASSETTE w/ DOWNLOAD CODE]
(Astral Spirits)

Olympia, WA based (but always on tour) saxophonist Arrington De Dionyso (Old Time Relijun, Malaikat dan Singa) and Los Angeles based percussionist Ted Byrnes (Sissy Spacek, LAFMS), in an unabating album of assertive free improvisation that borrows on Dionyso's interest in Indonesian trance music as Byrnes uses an unusual set of percussive accents over heavy drums.
     Buy      $7.95      Listen          

Fouick: Blick & Jean-Marc Foussat: Mastic Boreal
(Fou Records)

Primarily a creative filmmaker, Blick here provides narrative improvisation--phonemes, gutturals, word fragments, and spoken word--over improvising keyboardist Jean-Marc Foussat's Synthi AKS, creating expansive landscapes or curious audio aberrations, through four recordings demonstrating a diverse set of sonic environments interweaving voice and sound.
     Buy      $13.95      Listen          

Mazurek, Rob : Chimeric Stoned Horn [CD]
(Astral Spirits)

Astral Spirits first CD release comes with a pair of 3D glasses, to allow the listener to view Mazurek's 3D lithographs that cover this album of piccolo trumpet explorations with electronics, voice and percussion, a deeply personal and spiritual album from the Chicago trumpeter, released in conjunction with Mazurek's art opening "Constellation Scores" at URDLA in France.
     Buy      $12.95      Listen          

Metal Chaos Ensemble: Intermetallic Compounds
(Evil Clown)

A massive and metallic improvisation from the Boston area trio of David Peck, Andria Nicodemou, and Yuri Zbitnoff, using metal, drums, bells, aquasonic, daxophone, guzheng, vibes, bells, sax, clarinet and reeds in an intense journey that absorbs the listener and then draws them into a turbulent world of active sound, receding again at journey's end; amazing.

A duo improvisation recorded at Shichoshitsu Jinbo-cho, in Tokyo, Japan between no-input mixing electracoustic improviser Toshimaru Nakamura and Doubtmusic label leader and member of mn and MNK, Jun Numata on guitar, oscilator, radio, in a varied and turbulent affair of extreme electronics, sound and noise that takes the listener on a wild ride.

Nakatani / Kawabata / Chou: Perigee [CASSETTE w/ DOWNLOAD CODE]
(Astral Spirits)

Perigree: when the moon is closest to the earth: this unique album of free improvisation joins world traveling percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani, guitarist Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple, Mainliner, etc) and cellist Henna Chou in an album of mystical sound, from bowing percussion, long string tones, muted riffs and disquieting rhythm; consummate and cathartic.

(Trost Records)

Three young improvisers, Danish alto saxophonist Mette Rasmussen, US drummer Tyler Damon and US guitarist Tashi Dorji in an exhilarating album of free jazz recorded at Array Space, in Toronto, Canada, in three extended dialogs of creative, exploratory and powerful collective improvisation, a great new trio of players to keep an eye on.

     Buy      $9.95      Listen          

Weber, Katharina / Fred Frith / Fredy Studer: It Rolls

Blending a sense of chamber music into free improvisation that references jazz, the trio of pianist Katharnia Weber, guitarist Fred Frith and drummer Fredy Studer merge the most outrageous of techniques into a comprehensible whole, engaging the listener in surprising twists and turns that are sophisticated, extraordinary, and wonderfully unpredictable.
     Buy      $18.95      Listen          



Jeck, Philip: Iklectik

Named for the IKLECTIK performance space in London, England, Jeck's four part piece creates beautiful atmospheric passages which transition with field recordings, muted spoken word, symphonic-like passages, and other obscure sources, occasionally increasing in assertiveness but never leaving an exotic dream state of beautiful tonal environments.

Machida, Yoshio / Constantin Papageorgiadis: Music from the SYNTHI 100

176 (Chris Abrahams / Anthony Pateras): Music In Eight Octaves

In 2005 Australian pianists Chris Abrahams (The Necks) and Anthony Pateras multi-tracked 4 takes in each octave of the piano, superimposing them over each other to create a kaleidoscopic maelstrom of pianistic energy, layers of piano creating a hypnotic and dizzying set of textures and unexpected sonic intersections.

(Another Timbre)
