sample the album:
"Levin has always been an energizing player-his influence on playing partners is that of a jolt of electricity. Illusion of Truth is an hour-long performance from 2014, and even in its quietest moments there is an incredible focus conveyed through Levin's playing, a focus that accounts for every tiny sound and micro-event without ever being mistaken for "lowercase" music. Carletti keeps pace, often quiet but always busy, rattling along with Lyttonesque abandon. It would be hard to imagine this music ever transcribed onto a staff-both players bring an intuitive technique that eschews the idea of music as arrangements of notes, suggesting instead a direct, synaptic expression of ideas and passion, an effortless extension of body and mind more like speaking or dancing."-Dan Sorrells, freejazzblog.org
"Juan Pablo Carletti was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He grew up in a musical environment in which his father played percussion, and was instantly drawn to the drums. As he performed with a variety of bands, he focused mainly on improvised music and playing mainstream jazz. He began working with his own projects, and created a small label dedicated to new music.
In 2005, Juan traveled to New York City and played with the David Haney Group at Cornelia Street Cafe. This trip was a pivotal turning point in his life, as he met influential musicians such as Mat Maneri, Tony Malaby, Mark Helias and Tom Rainey. One year later, he officially moved to America to continue his musical journey. Juan approaches playing in unique ways, influenced by different styles of music, especially the music created in the avant-garde scene in New York City in the last three decades. Using mallets, hands, different sticks and extended techniques on drums, Juan illustrates how drums can be a rhythmic instrument as well as a palette of sounds. His teaching experiences have played a key role in transforming his rhythmic visions. Juan has played with Tony Malaby, Andrew Cyrille, Daniel Levin, Mat Maneri, Chris Hoffman, Angelica Sanchez, Kris Davis, Michael Attias and Rob Brown."-daniel-levin.com website
