descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Belgian pianist Fred Van Hove is one of the architects of European free music, though his profile Stateside is unfortunately rather minimal. An early associate of German reedman Peter Brötzmann and bassist Peter Kowald, Belgian reedman Cel Overberghe and Dutch drummer Han Bennink, their collective performances in art galleries and pubs following the May '68 riots is (or should be) the stuff of legend. Following the dissolution of the trio Brötzmann/Van Hove/Bennink, the pianist and sometime organist/accordionist founded Musica Libera Belgicae (MLB) and Musica Libera Antverpiae (MLA), as well as performing frequently solo and with a variety of duo partners. Most of his recordings have been released on European labels like FMP, Saravah, BVHaast Nato, and the Belgian imprints Vogel, Kamikaze and WIMprotwee - other than Atavistic's reissues, his previous US appearance on disc are a pair of recordings (solo and trio) for the Dallas label Nuscope. Van Hove doesn't often play with American improvisers, either, but on Burns Longer, his piano and accordion are heard in a whorl of a trio with bassists Damon Smith and Belgian Peter Jacquemyn on three massive free improvisations.

One is reminded of the shattering duets that Béb Guerin and Earl Freeman wove around Clifford Thornton's cornet on "Speak With Your Echo (And Call This Dialogue)" (Ketchaoua, BYG, 1969) although Kowald and Buschi Niebergall similarly girded Van Hove's flights in the context of Herr Brötzmann's larger groups. For the sake of differentiation, Smith is on the right and Jacquemyn is on the left, the latter's chunkiness and vocal growls a powerful contrast to Smith's fleet minefields. Van Hove brings a churchy resonance to his instrument as well as splintering stabs and Jaki Byard-like runs. The oft-reviled accordion in tandem with a blistering bull fiddle duo is a heaving generator of madcap energy."-Balance Point Acoustics

"Damon Smith studied double bass with Lisle Ellis and has had lessons with Bertram Turezky, Joëlle Leandré, John Lindberg, Mark Dresser and others. Damon's explorations into the sonic palette of the double bass have resulted in a personal, flexible improvisational language based in the American jazz avant-garde movement and European non-idiomatic free improvisation. Visual art, film and dance heavily influence his music, as evidenced by his CAMH performance of Ben Patterson's Variations for Double Bass, collaborations with director Werner Herzog on soundtracks for Grizzly Man and Encounters at the End of the World, and an early performance with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company.

Damon has collaborated with a wide range of musicians, including: Cecil Taylor, Marshall Allen (of Sun Ra's Arkestra), Henry Kaiser, Roscoe Mitchell, Michael Pisaro, Wadada Leo Smith, Marco Eneidi, Wolfgang Fuchs, Peter Brötzmann and Peter Kowald. After many years in the San Francisco Bay Area, and five great years in Houston, Texas working regularly with Alvin Fielder, Sandy Ewen, David Dove & Chris Cogburn, Damon will move to the Boston area in the fall of 2016. Damon has run Balance Point Acoustics record label since 2001, releasing music focusing on transatlantic collaborations between US and European musicians."
