descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Chamaeleon is a stellar new offering from electric guitarist Edward Ricart's powerful working quartet, augmented by a very special guest... firebrand English saxophonist Paul Dunmall. Paul is one of the finest players in realm of creative new music, best characterized by his devastatingly original playing in countless configurations, and a massive discography boasting an unsurpassed level of creativity and an unimaginably high level of consistency.

Edward Ricart is a rising star of improvised music, with collaborations ranging from members of the rock bands Fugazi, Tortoise, Black Flag, and Bardo Pond to Merzbow, and jazz legends Peter Broetzmann, William Hooker, Ches Smith, Travis Laplante, Kevin Shea, Roy Campbell, Nick Millevoi, Tim Daisy, Marty Ehrlich, Angelica Sanchez, and Steve Swell, among many others. He is also a member of Ohio-based avant rock trio Hyrrokkin, and Washington DC free-rock duo Matta Gawa.

Recorded in Brooklyn at Seizures Palace (Swans, Akron/Family, Charles Gayle, Angels of Light) during Paul's visit to New York City for the Vision Festival in 2012, Ricart pulled together his group for a rare opportunity to document Dunmall along a crew of Downtown New York's finest... The band features legendary trumpeter Herb Robertson, bassist Jason Ajemian (Marc Ribot, Ken Vandermark, Rob Mazurek), and drummer Andrew Barker (Gold Sparkle Band, Sirone, William Parker).

This set of music is freely improvised, yet exists firmly within the jazz tradition. The record boasts a serious backbone, coupled with a massively parallel frontline. This unit dynamically pairs spontaneously composed, angular lyricism with limber fluidity from the rhythm section, pushing the boundaries of improvised quintet music from the outset. Chamaeleon is stunningly cohesive, marking the musicians as masters of ebb, flow, assertiveness and energetic expression."-New Atlantis


Artist Biographies:

"Paul Dunmall was born 1953, Welling, Kent; saxophones, clarinets, bagpipes, miscellaneous wind instruments.

As told to Watson (1989), Paul Dunmall was a working class lad from Welling who left school at 15 and spent two years repairing instruments at Bill Lewington's shop in Shaftesbury Avenue, London. He turned professional at 17 and, following two years touring Europe with a progressive rock band (Marsupilami), joined the Divine Light Mission, a spiritual movement led by Guru Maharaj Ji and moved from London to an ashram in America. He told Isham (1997), 'I moved to an ashram full of musicians - a music ashram - but it was still spiritual practice. That gave me a spiritual understanding through meditation, Coltrane's music, and all the rest of it, led me to that, and that's been a fundament in my life ever since - that I can actually sit down and meditate and forget my body. I realise how important meditation is in my life... but I don't do it so much these days.' During the three years he lived in America, Dunmall played with Alice Coltrane (in a big band with the Divine Light Mission) and toured for twelve months with Johnny 'Guitar' Watson.

Back in England, he played with Danny Thompson and John Stevens as well as folk musicians Kevin Dempsey, Martin Jenkins and Polly Bolton and then, in 1979 he became a founder member of Spirit Level (Tim Richards, piano; Paul Anstey, bass; Tony Orrell, drums), staying with the group until 1989. During his time with Spirit Level, Dunmall joined the two-tenor front line group Tenor Tonic with Alan Skidmore (1985), played and broadcast with Dave Alexander and Tony Moore in the DAM trio (1986) and formed the Paul Dunmall Quartet with Alex Maguire, Tony Moore and Steve Noble (1986).

In 1987 Paul Dunmall joined the London Jazz Composers Orchestra, being a constant member and appearing on all their recorded output from that date onward. The following year the improvising collective quartet Mujician was formed by Keith Tippett, Dunmall, Paul Rogers and Tony Levin and has continued to be a regular performing, touring and recording group, sometimes augmented by other musicians. Dunmall has also played in a trio with Keith and Julie Tippetts and in Keith Tippett's big band Tapestry. Two other duos have also sprung out of Mujician: Dunmall with Tony Levin (two CD releases) and Dunmall in folk-influenced outings with Paul Rogers. Another regular playing partner throughout this period and up until the present includes Elton Dean.

In 1995, two trios were formed, the first with Oren Marshall, tuba and Steve Noble, percussion, the second with John Adams, guitar and Mark Sanders, percussion, these sometimes coming together as a quintet. More recently, Dunmall has played in another reeds/guitar/drums trio with Philip Gibbs and Tony Marsh and there appears to be regular crossover between all these players. The Paul Dunmall Octet was founded in 1997."

Dunmall also has released a large number of albums and a box set on the UK FMR label, in various configurations and instrumentation.
