descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Tangle features Ben Bennett on drums and percussion and Jack Wright on alto and soprano saxophones. These tracks are pure spontaneous improvisation in which the players allow anything to happen. As a result, there are none of the familiar elements that most folks associate with music. This is not the first time Bob and Jack have played together. They were previously in the band Rotty What. Unlike some experimental musicians who are almost invisible in the real world, Bennett and Wright have connections all over the planet and are well-known in the circles in which they navigate. This is strange stuff...some would call it noise...some would call it non-music. We've learned to expect the unexpected from the folks at Public Eyesore. Strangely jagged and accidental underground excursions."-Don Seven



"Ben Bennett and Jack Wright have been playing together since 2006. They met through Ben's non-poet dad, John M. Bennett, well known in the underground poetry scene, and a partner of Jack's since the 80s. The three played as a trio in the group Rotty What, documented on two recordings, "Naming the Dust," and "Ohio Grimes and Misted Meanies" (on Edgetone). Together with Evan Lipson, bassist, Ben and Jack form Wrest Trio.

Ben Bennett had musical training starting as a young child, studied jazz drumming, but ever since getting into improvisation, has pursued a self-taught, self-disciplined, intuitive approach to music-making. This path has led to his distilling the drumset down to a single vibrating membrane, finding different ways to draw sound from it, and continuous deconstructioneconstruction of the drumset and drumming. Starting in 2006 he has toured North America, Europe, and Japan. Groups that have names include Rotty What with Jack Wright and John M Bennett; Wrest with Jack Wright and Evan Lipson; Central Ohio War Coalition with Joe Panzner, Mike Shiflet and others; and bst.cr with Wilson Shook and Ryan Jewell. He has collaborated with Jack Callahan, Steve Baczkowski, Pascal Battus, Bbob Drake, Ben Hall, Michael Johnsen, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Ilan Manouach, Bob Marsh, Aaron Zarzutzki, to name a few, as well as many solo performances.

After leaving his academic position at Temple University in Philadelphia (European History) in 1972, Jack Wright was active in radical politics, and soon began directing his energies into music. Now at 71 he is one of a very small number of musicians in North America that has played free-form improvised music exclusively for over three decades. Through years of near constant touring, often performing where improvised music had never before been heard, he came to be regarded as "The Johnny Appleseed of Free Improvisation". He has deliberately eschewed the socio-aesthetic conventionsof musical careerism to pursue his own vision. Although his de-professionalized approach sets him apart from most musicians at his level of accomplishment, his art has always grown and opened new paths for the saxophone. He is an original and virtuosic saxophonist, a recognized improviser who is deeply lyrical, despite his wide distance from the mainstream.

Today Wright tours frequently in Europe and North America (and in Japan in 2006), playing sessions and concerts with a huge range of players, and bringing European musicians to the U.S. to perform together and meet American players. His vast list of collaborators includes some "name" luminaries, but more significant are the many obscure greats he has partnered with. He has made over 40 recordings (many published on his own Spring Garden label), performed in over 25 countries, and written extensively and insightfully about music and society for journals such as Improjazz (France) and Signal to Noise (US), as well as his own website, www.springgardenmusic.com and his blog, jackiswright.wordpress.com"-Spring Garden Music
