Recording the first meeting of vocalist Carol Genetti, amplified snare drummer Jon Mueller, and saxophonist Jack Wright, performing at the Spare Room in Chicago, 2004, for two large, subtle, and rich improvisations in a uniquely voiced dialog.

Nom-Tom (Wright / Genetti / Mueller)

Nom-Tom (Wright / Genetti / Mueller): Nom-Tom (Spring Garden Music)
Label: Spring Garden Music    
Released in: USA    

"This is a recording of their first meeting as a trio, at a performance at the Spare Room, in Chicago in September 2004, recorded by Neil Jendon. Jack and Carol have been playing together regularly since the late nineties. Jon lives in Milwaukee and is the creator of the Crouton label. This trio toured in Sept. 2005 throughout the midwest and France in 2007. Covers designed and sewn by Carol."-Spring Garden Music

"Genetti is one of the more discreet improvising vocalists: there are no full-blown hysterics and theatrics here, just a patient exploration of tiny twitters, bleats and delicate overtones - imagine a small furry animal Tuvan throat singing - and Wright accordingly spends much of the time with his sax jammed tight against his trouser leg, muffling and filtering the sound. Mueller's the wild card here, deftly avoiding classic improv percussion's nervous clatter and ping to concentrate on in-depth research into his beloved snare drum. The second track is more adventurous, filling the empty spaces of long dead reductionism with a whole range of sustained sonorities; about halfway through it turns into a veritable jungle (Indian, presumably, given the album title's reference to North Indian classical music), with Genetti squawking like a demented parrot and Wright growling menacingly in the undergrowth, while Mueller ticks away like a death watch beetle, leading the others into a nocturnal hooting contest. It's fascinating, superbly paced and impressive work, well worth checking out."-Dan Warburton, Paris Transatlantic, Nov. 2005
