descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Mark Nauseef (born June 11, 1953), in Cortland, New York, is a drummer and percussionist who has enjoyed a varied career, ranging from rock music during the 1970s with his time as a member of the Ian Gillan Band and, temporarily, Thin Lizzy, to a wide range of musical styles in more recent times, playing with many notable musicians from all over the world.

Nauseef briefly toured the United Kingdom in 1972 as tour member of The Velvet Underground before joining Elf, fronted by Ronnie James Dio, in early 1975, but the group disbanded shortly afterwards. Accompanied by Elf keyboardist Mickey Lee Soule, Nauseef joined ex-Deep Purple singer Ian Gillan in his new jazz fusion group, simply named the Ian Gillan Band. After three albums, Gillan broke the group up in 1978. Nauseef stood in for Thin Lizzy drummer Brian Downey for two international tours, then joined Gary Moore's short-lived band G-Force.

During the 1980s, Nauseef moved away from rock music towards a wide range of styles, including Javanese and Balinese gamelan, as well as music of Indian and Ghanaian origin. He has released several solo albums and worked with many other musicians in an array of different projects.

Nauseef has performed and/or recorded with such artists as Joachim Kühn, Gary Moore, Jack Bruce, Bill Laswell, Rabih Abou-Khalil, Trilok Gurtu, Steve Swallow, L. Shankar, Hamza El Din, The Velvet Underground, Joëlle Léandre, Ikue Mori, Ronnie James Dio, Markus Stockhausen, Kyai Kunbul (Javanese Gamelan), Andy Summers, Tony Oxley, Tomasz Stanko, Kenny Wheeler, Edward Vesala's "Sound and Fury", Thelma Houston, David Torn, The Ladzekpo Brothers (Ghanaian music and dance), Charlie Mariano, The Gamelan Orchestra of Saba (Balinese Gamelan), Kudsi Erguner, Philip Lynott, George Lewis, Evan Parker and Lou Harrison. Throughout most of these projects Nauseef has collaborated with Walter Quintus.

Nauseef attended the California Institute of the Arts where he studied Javanese Gamelan with K.R.T. Wasitodiningrat, Balinese Gamelan with I Nyoman Wenten, North Indian Pakhawaj drumming with Pandit Taranath Rao, North Indian music theory with Pandit Amiya Dasgupta, Ghanaian drumming and dance with Kobla and Alfred Ladzekpo, Dzidzorgbe Lawluvi and C.K. Ganyo, and 20th Century Western percussion techniques and hand drumming with John Bergamo. He also studied frame drum techniques of the Middle East, India and the Caucasus with Glen Velez. It was also at CalArts that Nauseef began a very creative and productive relationship, which continues to this day, with musical "alter ego", guitarist Miroslav Tadic. Together, they have composed, recorded and produced a wide range of music in situations from duo to large ensembles with musicians from around the world.-Wikipedia


Artist Biographies:

"Arthur Jarvinen (1956-2010) is a familiar figure in the contemporary music community, having been a featured composer and performer on prominent concerts, festivals and broadcasts internationally for well over two decades. He was a founding and longtime member of the acclaimed California E.A.R. Unit and has led several of his own bands and ensembles of various kinds. His musical activities both as composer and performer range from contemporary chamber and experimental music to songwriting, surf music, electronics, improvisation and multimedia, and his creative output includes visual art, word works, and experimental theater.

Edible Black Ink, the first full CD of Jarvinen's music, is released by the California E.A.R. Unit on O.O. Discs. Ghatam, a 55-minute collaborative work by the Antenna Repairmen and sculptor Stephen Freedman is composed for unique handmade ceramic instruments and is released on M.A Recordings. Erase the Fake, the debut recording of Some Over History (O.O. Discs) enjoyed a lengthy stay on the college radio top-ten playlist. Serious Immobilities, Petit (84 variations on Satie's Vexations), for piano solo, was recently recorded by Bryan Pezzone and released on Los Angeles River Records. In 2002 Jarvinen established Lakefire Records for releasing his own recordings and other projects of special interest. Experimental Etudes is Jarvinen's first offering as an author. The book elucidates in music and words many of the problems of contemporary music for players of all instruments.

Jarvinen's theatrical experiments have generated a unique body of work he calls "physical poetry". These are non-narrative audio/visual compositions for the stage, incorporating sound, text, movement, lighting, and props. Jarvinen has performed his physical poetry as a soloist, and with the California E.A.R. Unit, the Antenna Repairmen, and the experimental theater group Le Mômo.

Jarvinen has received commissions from the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Koussevitzky Music Foundation (for X-tet), the Fromm Foundation at Harvard University (for the New York New Music Ensemble), the Minnesota Composers Forum (for both the California E.A.R. Unit and Helios), the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players, Zeitgeist, Alea III, and others. He received a 1990 NEA composer fellowship for The Paces of Yu, a unique percussion work for Brazilian berimbau (a folk instrument) and homemade instruments. He was awarded a 1991 California Arts Council fellowship and received Ohio University's 1997 Achievement In Music Award. He received a Subito Grant from the American Composers Forum, Los Angeles Chapter, for the recording of Serious Immobilities, Petit, and most recently was awarded a City of Los Angeles (C.O.L.A.) Individual Artist Fellowship for the creation and presentation of Nighthawks, a staged song cycle on paintings by Edward Hopper.

Jarvinen's works have been performed by the California E.A.R. Unit, the Los Angeles Philharmonic New Music Group, New York New Music Ensemble, Icebreaker (England), Relâche, Bang On A Can All Stars, Essential Music, Xtet, Zeitgeist, Contemporary Chamber Players, Ensemble '88 (Netherlands), the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players, the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble, New Performance Group, Twisted Tutu, Bosso Bongo, Magnetic Pig (Australia), New World Ensemble, Synchronia, Ensemble Green, Dinosaur Annex, Firebird Ensemble, Alea III, as well as numerous solo artists.

Major performances include the Ojai Festival, Tanglewood, CalArts Contemporary Music Festival, New Music America, Ars Musica (Brussels), the Meltdown Festival (London), de Ijsbreker (Amsterdam), the Kennedy Center, Monday Evening Concerts (Los Angeles), Bang On A Can, Merkin Concert Hall, Lincoln Center, The Kitchen, and Essential Music (NYC), American Inroads (San Francisco), the Overtones Series and Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), North American New Music Festival, the Kenneth Patchen Festival (Ohio), the Louisiana Museum for Modern Art (Humlebaek, Denmark), and Music Fest Kiev.

Arthur Jarvinen received the Bachelor of Music in applied percussion from Ohio University (1978) where he studied with Guy Remonko, and the Master of Fine Arts from the California Institute of the Arts (1981) where he studied percussion with John Bergamo, Karen Ervin, and Ruth Underwood, and composition with Morton Subotnick, Stephen Mosko, and Earle Brown."

"Tony Oxley (born 15 June 1938) is an English free-jazz drummer and one of the founders of Incus Records.

ony Oxley was born in Sheffield, England. A self-taught pianist by the age of eight, he first began playing the drums at seventeen. In Sheffield he was taught by well respected local drummer Haydon Cook, who had returned to the city after a long residency, in the 1950s, at Ronnie Scotts in London. While in the Black Watch military band from 1957 to 1960 he studied music theory and improved upon his drumming technique. From 1960 to 1964 he led his own quartet which performed locally in England, and in 1963 he began working with Gavin Bryars and guitarist Derek Bailey in a trio known as Joseph Holbrooke. Oxley moved to London in 1966 and became house drummer at Ronnie Scott's, where he accompanied visiting musicians such as Joe Henderson, Lee Konitz, Charlie Mariano, Stan Getz, Sonny Rollins and Bill Evans until the early 1970s. He was also a member of various groups led by musicians such as Gordon Beck, Alan Skidmore and Mike Pyne.

In 1969 Oxley appeared on the recording of the later released John McLaughlin album Extrapolation and also formed his own quintet consisting of Derek Bailey, Jeff Clyne, Evan Parker and Kenny Wheeler, releasing the album The Baptised Traveller. Following this album the group was joined by Paul Rutherford on trombone and became a sextet, releasing the 1970 album 4 Compositions for Sextet. That same year Oxley helped found Incus Records along with Bailey and others and also the Musicians Cooperative. He also received a three-month "artist-in-residence" at the Sydney Conservatorium in Australia in 1970. Around this time he joined the London Jazz Composers Orchestra and also got involved with collaborations with Howard Riley. In 1973 he became a tutor at the Jazz Summer School in Barry, South Wales, and in 1974 he formed another group of his own known as Angular Apron. Through the 1980s he worked with various musicians, including Tony Coe and Didier Levallet, also forming his own Celebration Orchestra during the latter half of that decade. Oxley also did extensive touring with Anthony Braxton in 1989, and also began a long-lasting working relationship with Cecil Taylor during this period.Oxley at the Moers Festival, Germany, in 2008

In 1993 he joined an international quartet that included Tomasz Sta ko, Bobo Stenson, and Anders Jormin, and in 2000 he released the album Triangular Screen with the Tony Oxley Project 1, a trio with Ivar Grydeland and Tonny Kluften."

"Born 27 July 1960; Piano, electronics. Pat Thomas started playing at the age of 8 and studied classical music and played reggae. He began playing jazz at sixteen after seeing Oscar Peterson on television then listened to snatches of jazz on the radio before, in 1979, playing his first serious improvised gigs. From 1986 he played with Ghosts which was Pete McPhail and Matt Lewis.

In addition to programming his keyboards, Pat Thomas also utilises prerecorded tapes. He told Chris Blackford (1991), 'As far as the tapes are concerned I'll probably just sit in front of the TV and tape whatever's going on and so some editing afterward to decide what might be useful. ...But I don't actually put a label on each tape saying what's on there, so when I come to use them I don't know what I'm going to be playing. That obviously prevents me from setting things up. I pick them at random and see what happens. So I'm just as surprised as anybody else at what comes out'.

In 1988 he was awarded an Arts Council Jazz Bursary to write three new electroacoustic compositions for his ten-piece ensemble, Monads: Roger Turner and Matt Lewis, percussion; Pete McPhail, WX7 wind synthesizer; Neil Palmer, turntables; Phil Minton, voice; Phil Durrant, violin; Marcio Mattos, bass; Jon Corbett, trumpet; Geoff Searle, drum machines. The intention was to feature different aspects of electronics using improvisation so, for example, one piece - Dialogue - featured Pete McPhail and Neil Palmer, another concentrated on the interaction of percussionists and drum machines, and a third piece had Phil Minton and Jon Corbett improvising with a computer. The pieces were performed at the Crawley Outside-In Festival of new music in 1989.

Pat Thomas was invited by Derek Bailey to play in Company Week in 1990 and 1991 and he also took part in the Ist International Symposium for Free Improvisation in Bremen with the guitarist. He has been a member of the Tony Oxley Quartet (documented on Incus CD 15) and played in Oxley's Angular Apron along with Larry Stabbins, Manfred Schoof and Sirone at the 8th Ruhr Jazz Meeting and in the percussionist's Celebration Orchestra. He plays with Lol Coxhill in a range of combinations from duo to being a member of 'Before my time', is a member of Mike Cooper's Continental Drift, and he has a well established duo with percussionist Mark Sanders and a trio with Steve Beresford and Francine Luce. In 1992 Pat Thomas formed the quartet Scatter with Phil Minton, Roger Turner and Dave Tucker; funded by the Arts Council they toured the UK in 1993 and again at the beginning of 1997.

On the 'Festival circuit', Pat Thomas has appeared at: the Young Improvisors Festival at the Korzo Theatre, Den Haag (with Jim O'Rourke, Mats Gustafsson and Alexander Frangenheim); Angelica 95 in Bologna, Italy; the Stuttgart 5th Festival of Improvised Music 96 (with Fred Frith, Shelly Hirsch, Carlos Zingaro and others); and the 3rd International Festival 96 in Budapest (with Evan Parker, Phil Minton, John Russell and Roger Turner).

"Walter Quintus (born April 15, 1949 in Bremen, † February 20, 2017 ) was a German musician, composer, sound engineer and music producer.

Walter Quintus studied from 1955 to 1969 violin and was already 1959 concertmaster in youth orchestras. There followed many tours through Europe as well as radio and television productions. At the age of 18 he was to study with David Oistrakh in Moscow, but he finished his classical studies and founded, together with Thomas Olivier and Lothar Siems, the rock band Parzival. They released two long-playing records and a single at Teldec (Telefunken / Decca).

From 1972 he started recording and mixing music in Bremen and shortly after that in Hamburg's Rüssl Studio. In the early years he collaborated with commercial musicians and bands like Rex Gildo, Grobschnitt, Kraan, Kraftwerk, Vicky Leandros, Udo Lindenberg, Lonzo, Jahn Teigen, Otto Waalkes, Roger Whittaker and many others.

With Kurt Renker Quintus opened the CMP studio in Zerkall in 1982, where he recorded and mixed music until 2010. In 1984, together with Joachim Kühn, he created the Digital Soundboard, an analog-digital mixing console, equipped with many electronic effects, which makes it possible to immediately and directly change and extend the music played. The Digital Soundboard was used live in the ballet productions Time Exposure (Broadway, New York, Carolyn Carlson ), Dark (Théatre de la Ville, Paris, Carolyn Carlson), Get up Early and Citizen Kane (Opera, Cologne, Jochen Ullrich), as well in many concerts with Joachim Kühn, Jean-François Jenny-Clark, John Bergamo, Josep-Maria Balanyà and others.

From 1994 Quintus also worked with Audio Art, an experimental form of modern radio plays.

He produced in Turkey, India and Indonesia among others with Kudsi Erguner, Shoba Gurtu, KRT Wasitodiningrat, Sruti Laya. Most of his productions of jazz, classical and contemporary music originated in Europe and the United States."

"Over the course of some three decades, visionary bassist-producer Bill Laswell has been one of the most prolific and restlessly creative forces in contemporary music. A sound conceptualist who has always been a step ahead of the curve, he has put his inimitable stamp on nearly 3,000 recording projects by such artists as Mick Jagger, Yoko Ono, Iggy Pop, Laurie Anderson, Brian Eno, Bootsy Collins, Nine Inch Nails, Motorhead, Peter Gabriel, Blur, The Ramones, George Clinton, Pharaoh Sanders, The Dalai Lama, Matisyahu, Angelique Kidjo, DJ Krush, RAMM:ΣLL:ZΣΣ, Sting, The Last Poets, Afrika Bambaataa, Julian Schnabel, Whitney Houston, Manu Dibango, Fela Kuti and most notably Herbie Hancock, who collaborated with Laswell for the pivotal 1983 smash-hit single "Rock-It" which introduced scratching to the mainstream, inspired a generation of turntablists and gave the great jazz pianist instant street credibility among the burgeoning hip-hop cognoscenti.

Laswell's sense of creative daring as a producer was further demonstrated on several recordings that have kept him on the cutting edge, including Afrika Bambaataa's collaboration with John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten of Sex Pistols fame) on World Destruction and PiL's Album (which brought together an unlikely pairing of drumming greats Ginger Baker and Tony Williams, synth-pop pioneer Ryuichi Sakamoto of Yellow Magic Orchestra fame and rising guitar star Steve Vai). His spoken word collaborations with William S. Burroughs and expatriate writer-composer Paul Bowles have gone against the grain of music industry trends while his radical remixes (or re-constructions) of landmark recordings by Miles Davis (Panthalassa), Carlos Santana (Divine Light), Bob Marley (Dreams of Freedom) and a vast scan of dub-related and atmospheric ambient projects have gone on to further defined Laswell's presence as a revolutionary ikonoklast.

Bill Laswell has helped in generating several innovative recording labels such as Celluloid, Subharmonic, Black Arc, and Innerhythmic. Along with Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records (Bob Marley and U2), he established the AXIOM label in 1989. M.O.D. Technologies, his most recent imprint is releasing projects by Method Of Defiance, Lee "Scratch" Perry, PRAXIS, Garrison Hawk with Sly & Robbie, Bernie Worrell, The Process (with Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith and pianist Jon Baptiste) and progressive/futuristic music from Ethiopia (CDs/DVDs).

As a player, Laswell's bass lines resound with rare authority on groundbreaking projects by Tabla Beat Science (with Zakir Hussain and Ustad Sultan Khan), his avant-funk band Material, the apocalyptic assault of Last Exit (with Sonny Sharrock), his progressive dub effected Method of Defiance and the throbbingly intense power trios, Massacre (with Fred Frith and Charles Hayward), Painkiller (with John Zorn and Mick Harris), Praxis (with Buckethead and Brain), Blixt (with Raoul Bjorkenheim and Morgan Agren) and the latest (2014) Bladerunner (with John Zorna and Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo).

Laswell's artistic reach has consistently extended to the continent of Africa, creating ground-breaking, evolutionary snd controversial recording projects in Morocco, Senegal, Mali, Gambia and most recently, Ethiopia where he has established a base for developing new as well as legendary artists, just as he did in the South Bronx some 30 years ago.

A veteran of 300 plus journeys to Japan, where he has worked with everyone from The Gagaku Orchestra (Japan's ancient music, only played for emperors for 1500 years), to avant-jazz, rock, hip-hop and DJ culture. An eternal musical renegade, Bill Laswell has always played by his own rules."
