sample the album:
"There's a great sense of coming-together in this group. Jack Wright, one of the United States' true titans of free improvising, was featured on a killer disc (Over The Transom, bim-08) in the first batch of non-hometeam releases the label ever produced. From then on, more classic BI titles sprung up from the activities of Wright, who, for those not in the know, has played with just about everybody, the world over, among them William Parker, Axel Dorner, Bhob Rainey, and Nate Wooley.
Ellwood Epps has kindly hosted Chris Dadge and Scott Munro (aka the Bent Spoon Duo) at his spaces in Montreal, and has a release on the label (aside from the great new one, Land of Marigold) with Pink Saliva. Dadge and Munro founded the label in 2005, and are featured on many releases. Wright and Epps both found themsevles in Calgary last November, and the four of them recorded a bunch of material, this disc being from their main concert in Calgary.
Although they'd never played as a quartet (Dadge and Munro had played trios with each), the sense of chemistry is immediately evident. Each individual's listening is done with close scrutiny, the reactions and proposals are unrolled in a tightly-coiled but unhurried manner, and everyone pays close attention to the music's need to breathe. Sister quartet album forthcoming this spring on Eh? Records."-Bug Incision
