Bassist John Lindberg's electric instrumental ensemble BLOB with guitarist Ted Orr, Drummer Havey Sorgen, and guest Ralph Carney in their 5th release of eclectic spontaneous journeys.
Released in: USA
"BLOB is an electric instrumental ensemble experience that focuses on recording their spontaneously created journeys which embrace a multiplicity of genres, taking their burgeoning legion of followers to exciting energy and spirit driven spaces with each foray. BLOB is all about the moment, and those moments are eclectic, honest, and heart pounding. It is full-out instrumental playing within a stream of consciousness mindset that speaks to a world in desperate need of this level of immediate expressionism.
John Lindberg has been a seminal figure as a composer/bassist in the world of creative music for well over thirty years, having toured worldwide performing his own work leading a variety of ensembles, with the String Trio of New York, and as featured bassist with the Human Arts Ensemble, Anthony Braxton, Kevin Norton and Wadada Leo Smith. His vast and diverse discography includes solo bass works, multiple small mixed ensembles, string quintets, large chamber ensembles, JazzHopRevolution (his recent collaboration with hip-hop emcee Rahman Jamaal), and beyond. He is a two-time recipient of the NYFA Fellowship.
Ted Orr is a renowned guitar virtuoso and an innovator in the arena of midi guitar performance. He has recorded and/or performed with a wide span of artists including Sly Stone, George Clinton & P-Funk, Karl Berger, and Nana Vasconcelos. Ted maintains a parallel career as an audio engineer; a unique talent that has given BLOB its public voice.
Harvey Sorgen has developed a unique and broad-based drumming vocabulary that has added vitality to the works of artists ranging from Hot Tuna, Dave Douglas, David Torn, Bill Frisell, Greg Allman, and Garth Hudson, amongst many others. He maintains an active presence as an international touring and recording artist in high demand."
