Grassi, Lou Po Band With Marshall Allen
Live At The Knitting Factory Volume 1

Grassi, Lou Po Band With Marshall Allen: Live At The Knitting Factory Volume 1 (Porter Records)
Label: Porter Records    
Released in: USA    

"A stunning live recording from 2000 - wild tribal drums call forth the musicians to take the music to the boiling point and in that heat... suddenly the bottom falls out and you are left with the beautiful swaying sound of a lone bass whispering softly through the air. There are many inspirational moments like this to be found on "Live at the Knitting Factory, Volume 1". These musicians know how to show off the true range of their instruments with quite growls and murmuring notes that create a strange and alien langue between them that suddenly shifts to loud and boisterous shouts. This is a recording from some of the top musicians in the avant-garde jazz scene and should not be overlooked."-Porter Records
