The Animul label is Ned Rothenberg's own, and this release is an amazing demonstration of Rothenberg's abilities both as a leader and a player. On clarinet, bass clarinet and alto sax, his skills in improvisation and writing are powerful, from fluid playing to intense bass clarinet musing or circular phrases that amaze. Joined by Tony Buck from The Necks on drums; Stomu Takeishi, a part of Henry Threadgill's Make a Move, on fretless bass; on three tracks Dave Tronzo (Spanish Fly) on slide guitar; and Joe Williamson on acoustic bass for one piece. This is a performing group and it shows, but it's also a thinking and exploring set of musicians that demonstrate a wide variety of styles and approaches with strength and assurance. The credits state that "All music spontaneously composed by the musicians," which is no doubt true, but Rothenberg's hand in direction and composition is strongly felt. Highly recommended.
• Show Bio for Ned Rothenberg
"Composer/Performer Ned Rothenberg has been internationally acclaimed for both his solo and ensemble music, presented for the past 33 years on 5 continents. He performs primarily on alto saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, and the shakuhachi - an endblown Japanese bamboo flute. His solo work utilizes an expanded palette of sonic language, creating a kind of personal idiom all its own. In an ensemble setting, he leads the trio Sync, with Jerome Harris, guitars and Samir Chatterjee, tabla, works with the Mivos string quartet playing his Quintet for Clarinet and Strings and collaborates around the world with fellow improvisors. Recent recordings include this Quintet, The World of Odd Harmonics, Ryu Nashi (new music for shakuhachi), and Inner Diaspora, all on John Zorn's Tzadik label, as well as Live at Roulette with Evan Parker, and The Fell Clutch, on Rothenberg's Animul label."-Ned Rothenberg Website (http://www.nedrothenberg.com/short&extended_biography.html)

• Show Bio for Tony Buck
"Born in Sydney in 1962, Tony is regarded as one of Australia's most creative and adventurous exports, with vast experience across the globe. He has been involved in a highly diverse array of projects. Apart from The Necks, he is probably best known as leader of hardcore/impro band PERIL.
Early in his musical life, after having graduated from the New South Wales Conservatorium of Music, he became very involved in the jazz scene in Australia, often touring with visiting international artists such as Vincent Herring, Clifford Jordan, Mickey Tucker, Branford Marsalis and Ernie Watts, as well as Australians Mark Simmonds, Paul Grabowsky, The catholics, Sandy Evans and Dale Barlow.
Following time spent in Japan, where he formed PERIL with Otomo Yoshihide and Kato Hideki, Tony moved to Europe, and has involved himself in many projects there, including the development of new "virtual" MIDI controllers at STEIM in Amsterdam.
Tony has played, toured or recorded with, among others, Jon Rose, Nicolas Collins, Tenko, John Zorn, Tom Cora, Phil Minton, Haino, Switchbox, The Machine for Making Sense, Ne Zhdall, The EX, Peter Brotzmann, Hans Reichel, The Little Red Spiders, Subrito Roy Chowdury, Clifford Jordan, Kletka Red, Han Bennink, Shelley Hirsch, Wayne Horvitz, Palinckx, and Ground Zero."-The Necks Website (http://www.thenecks.com/bio)
