Rothenberg / Jauniaux / Phillips: While You Were Out (Kadima)
Label: Kadima    
Released in: Italy    

A fantastic trio of multi-reed and shakuhachi player Ned Rothenberg, avant vocalist Catherine Jauniaux, and bassist Barre Phillips recorded live in France, 2008. The connection between Rothenberg and Jauniaux goes back to the early Downtown NY scene, connected by cellist Tom Cora. Barre Phillips adds a great voice here on acoustic, primarily bowed double bass. The interaction is sophisticated yet playful, with Jauniaux's vocalizing bringing out the best in all three players as they push themselves to create memorable and unusual dialog - recommended.

"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."
