descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Most remarkable about these compositionally-based collective improvisations is the high degree to which these players understand one another. Often it is nearly impossible to tell where the composition ends and the improvisation begins, as the two are so seamlessly meshed, the playing so imaginatively taut.

On "SchRotZ #3," the three begin billowing their horns slowly, inching forward from their undersea hideaway before bubbling their horns into a cyclical and beautiful abstract dance. Considering the heavily abstracted approach to these compositions, the group never loses its sense of rhythm, at times swinging like Rahsaan Roland Kirk might have, had he gotten lost on some remote, uninhabited jungle island.

It is this percussive element that is this music's most remarkable trait. How easy it is to forget that there are no percussive instruments represented, when the instruments are hitting staccato notes one after the other, each in their own pocket of the musical space. Thetrio's clever maneuver around its self-induced limitations-at times churning and bubbling like the clouds of a summer storm, at others droning and slowly fluctuating as the thunder rolls into the distance-creates a dynamic album filled with a pure spirit of collective improvisation tough to rival.

When the slow drones of "ShakuhaZiSch" creep in, they hold all of the menace of crocodile's eyes peering over the water. Building from this, the trio hastens the pace, with Schmid's low end clarinet drones gaining steam, without ever relieving the listener of the initial feelings of the piece. Such is the gift of these talented musicians-always listening to each other and propelling forward, one after the other, further into the unknown."-Henry Smith, All About Jazz


Artist Biographies:

"Composer/Performer Ned Rothenberg has been internationally acclaimed for both his solo and ensemble music, presented for the past 33 years on 5 continents. He performs primarily on alto saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, and the shakuhachi - an endblown Japanese bamboo flute. His solo work utilizes an expanded palette of sonic language, creating a kind of personal idiom all its own. In an ensemble setting, he leads the trio Sync, with Jerome Harris, guitars and Samir Chatterjee, tabla, works with the Mivos string quartet playing his Quintet for Clarinet and Strings and collaborates around the world with fellow improvisors. Recent recordings include this Quintet, The World of Odd Harmonics, Ryu Nashi (new music for shakuhachi), and Inner Diaspora, all on John Zorn's Tzadik label, as well as Live at Roulette with Evan Parker, and The Fell Clutch, on Rothenberg's Animul label."
