"Slap" and "Tickle" are the names of each of the 2 complex, tempetuous & informed live improvs on this release from power trio Massimo Pupillo, Terrie Ex, & Paal Nilssen-Love.

Slap & Tickle

Offonoff: Slap & Tickle (Smalltown Superjazzz)
Label: Smalltown Superjazzz    
Released in: Norway    

The heavy-weight trio of Paal Nilssen-Love, Massimo Pupillo and Terrie Ex began in Original Silence (with Jim O'Rourke, Thurston Moore and Mats Gustafsson), releasing the first CD Clash in 2008. The second release on Smalltown Superjazzz catches them live before that release performing at the Kongsberg international Jazz Festival of 2007. Comprised of two long tracks - "Slap" and "Tickle" - the trio take the performance in an extraordinary number of directions that takes the music in and out of free jazz, improvised rock, thick sound-oriented ea-improv, with great technical and passionate abilities. Perhaps compare to Massacre; an impressive live accomplishment.
