Laubrock Sleepthief, Ingrid
The Madness Of Crowds

Laubrock Sleepthief, Ingrid: The Madness Of Crowds (Intakt)
Label: Intakt    
Released in: Switzerland    

"If you haven't heard Laubrock live during the last couple of years, you're in for a revelation. Here, on tenor and soprano, she is writing what amount to new dialects, if not full-blown languages, for her instruments. The visceral low-register phrases evoking bar-walking tenor players from an earlier age, and the precisely articulated high harmonics, are present as before, as are more conventionally played passages. But they're joined by a raft of new sounds and textures, some caressing, others disturbing, lyrical dream weavings and rude awakenings, which turn the saxophone inside out. To play like this requires wild imagination and extreme technical virtuosity, qualities Laubrock has in abundance."-Nic Jones, All About Jazz, USA

12 page booklet with photos and text in German and English.
