descriptions, reviews, &c.

"If you respond to the "classic" form of free jazz as practiced in the later sixties by the likes of Coltrane and Sonny Simmons, the recent album by the trio Bucher Tan Countryman Acceptance.Resistance (Improvising Beings 53) may well give you a new jolt by returning to yet forging ahead in this mode. The Philippines-based trio has power and creativity at its fingertips with Simon Tan on bass, Christian Bucher on drums and Rick Countryman on alto sax.

The band gives us a full set of free and swinging-propulsing sounds that sound fresh and contemporary while hearkening back to the masters of the idiom. Countryman has a vibrant soaring tone that he puts to good use with onslaughts of post-bop free continuity and poise. There is excellent fluidity to his horn lines that make things grow as they go. Simon Tan has plenty of ideas and a woody sound that may well remind you of Silva, Grimes, Garrison and other past masters. Christian Bucher takes advantage of the trio space with a busy, churning time/spacetime that has creative invention as well as drive. Put the three together and set them loose.

The result is an engaging album that keeps the flames kindled and creates a musical fullness that thrives on openness. Here is a trio that knows what it is about and provides direction and soulful fire consistently. Kudos!"-Grego Applegate Edwards



"This album is just about what Jazz was supposed to be: a "true life drama", that's what Sonny Simmons calls life stories. Rick Countryman, alto sax supremo trained by no less than Bert Wilson, and as it happens, of course, a disciple of Simmons, and myself, have been Facebook pen-friends for years. He's been living in the Philippines for decades. There, he turned the local scene's attention towards Free Jazz. Heated nights not unlike anything out of an early ESP-Disk' session started at club Tago, where he hit a friendship with a local, Simon Tan, a very strong double bass player. Visiting Swiss drummer (and visual artist) Christian Bucher, a student of Pierre Favre, gave the incentive to create a record. This is what it is, the jazziest album I ever published. Unashamedly, joyfully jazz, "in the tradition" of 1960s Free - and I'm grateful individuals such as Rick keep the idiom much alive, and kicking."-Improvising Beings
