Label: Creative Sources
Released in: Portugal
"Releases by Creative Sources indeed hardly land on our desk, despite their extensive catalogue. They are up to catalogue number 222 with this new release, and like we should know from the ones we reviewed in their earlier days, all of their music is from the field of improvisation. Here we have a trio of Andreas Willers on electric and acoustic guitars, Christian Marien on drums and percussion and Meinrad Kneer on double bass. The music was recorded in February of this year at Ausland, one of Berlin's finer places for such music and then mixed a month later, so perhaps taped to multi-track and then mixed, or perhaps it's edited down. Either way is fine. These players aren't well-known to me, even when Kneer every now and then mails releases on his Evil Rabbit label.
These nine pieces, totaling some forty six minutes, show a few things: excellent improvising skills obviously, with a fine love of playing their instruments kind of 'as intended' by them who build such instruments and not like resonant sound boards. But that can result in a fine bit of mean noise, such as in 'Ubersturz'. Stylistically these three men aren't confined to one style. That 'Ubersturz' piece is noise, and rock like, but then they might play as easily something that is much more acoustic jazz like, of course always in a total free mode. This gives the release quite a varied impression, which works pretty well here, and could appeal to a wider audience than those hardcore improvisation/free jazz lovers, but to anyone with an open mind towards free rock, free noise and free jazz. All you need is an open mind, but then this music has a lot to give."-FdW, Vital Weekly
