An odyssey in dark and stunning improvisation from the New York trio of Jamie Saft, Joe Morris, & Mike Pride, an exploration of sonic space that could only come out of the NY Downtown.

Spanish Donkey, The (Morris / Saft / Pride)

Spanish Donkey, The (Morris / Saft / Pride): XYX (Northern Spy)
Label: Northern Spy    
Released in: USA    

"Any of the artists that form The Spanish Donkey (Jamie Saft, Joe Morris, Mike Pride) could create dictionaries of superlatives with praise their work has garnered. But as a cohesive unit, they surge forward into a new thesaurus, as a dream trampling through the woods on the edges of evening. Joe Morris' melodic improv guitar lines sketching out space where Jamie Saft's keyboards color in chromatic aberration nudged and prodded by Mike Pride's outside of time drumming. Three artists who have made careers of developing new sonic spaces, have formed a new place of exploration and imagination. It's the re-history of 21st century avant-jazz."-Northern Spy
