The Borbetomagus trio of Jim Sauter (sax), Don Dietrich (reeds) and Donald Miller (guitar) in a 1982 release on their own Agaric label, high volume jazz compiled from concerts in 1979 and 1981.
Released in: USA
"This recording, compiled from concerts in 1981 and 1979, explores the range of sound that this trio could generate. It is best played at high volume, for this is the only way that the subtleties of the music can get through the sheer barrage of sound. This is music to scare your pets; at first listen this record may be mistaken for random noise. A closer listen will reveal that the sound is tightly controlled. The art happens in texture and timbre, rather than melody or harmony. Recording quality a bit shoddy; much of the sound of the music is also highly dependant on the acoustics of the hall and the quality of the microphones (the group themselves would more than likely endorse this type of listening)."-Mark W.B.
