Label: Clean Feed
Released in: Portugal
"The emergence of Angelica Sanchez on the international scene dates back to 1995 when she relocated from Arizona to New York. She has left her personal mark in numerous collaborations with world-class musicians and her remarkable CD "Life Between" documents her individual improvisational and compositional voice. Her playing has a beautiful spacious abandon and a spirited willingness to let go and follow the essence of the music. Sanchez's compositions are multi-themed emotional landscapes. Each composition functions in harnessing and framing the dynamic improvisational power of her virtuoso ensemble.
Saxophonist Tony Malaby, is one of the most compelling living voices on his instrument who is able to musically expand in multiple musical directions. Drummer Tom Rainey, can capture, abstract and reconfigure rhythms, creating texture and multi-layers of propulsion as individually as any drummer on the planet. Drew Gress, MVP of bass players, distinguishes himself with profound tone, time, wonderful harmonic hearing and the ability to always serve the music first. Marc Ducret, the wonderful electric guitar virtuoso can rhythmicize, develop and fuse linearity, sound and microtonality into one fluid musical language.
If a band is a metaphor for a family, then the 'family values' of this ensemble is to blur the conventional boundaries of improvisation within composition. This has been developed to near telepathic levels between all the players. Delicate but free-flowing, the music in Life Between couldn't be more expressive of what is happening in new music today."-CleanFeed
