Sharrock, Linda The Network: They Begin To Speak [2 CDs] (Improvising Beings)

Label: Improvising Beings    
Released in: France    

"From the new half live, half studio 2xCD, "They Begin To Speak". Both discs present near hour-long versions of the title track respectively. True to the spirit of the project, the live disc was actually performed first in 2015, recorded at The Lescar in Sheffield, UK. Sharrock, along with a mix of musicians, both new and from the prior performance, recreated the experience two months later in a studio in Issy-les-Moulineaux, France. She was aided by dozens of improv luminaries during both events, such as Charlie Collins (I've heard of him!), John Jasnoch, Dereck Saw, and Itaru Oki. Still, Sharrock has an impressive way of charging through their determined cacophony and taking center stage by means of upping the ante. If the album is as wild and inspired in its entirety as the above excerpt, then two hours won't seem much of a chore."-Improvising Beings
