Bootleg Unit

Honey, Did You Break All My Jazz Cassettes?

Bootleg Unit: Honey, Did You Break All My Jazz Cassettes? (FMR)

Unusual "broken jazz" and ea-improvisation with strange interventions from the European trio of Jaka Berger (prepared drums), Jure Borsic (reeds) and Colin Petit (tape & electronics), with a sly sense of humor through track names like "Miles DeVice" and "Or Not Coleman" as they deconstruct free jazz with aberrantly excellent intentions; obscure great fun.

"Electro-acoustic performer Colin Petit is playing free improvisation since his debuts on saxophone. His particular approach of tape live sampling led him to play in lots of collaborations on the european experimental scene, especially as part of the collective RPT from Nancy, which is organizing lots of events about sound artsand DIY culture."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

Unusual "broken jazz" and other indefinable ea-improvisation with strange interventions from the European trio of Jaka Berger (prepared drums), Jure Borsic (reeds) and Colin Petit (tape & electronics). To declare this band obscure is an understatement, as individual members link to bands I've never heard of, like Brgs, Guns and Moses, OZON ZOON, Where Were We ? Quartet, Status... the list goes on, but information about who these performers are remains clouded.

This particular trio, who present a sly sense of humor through track names like "Miles DeVice" and "Or Not Coleman", would best be described in the jazz idiom, except that they regularly drift off into ea-improv and inexplicable moments of sonic abstraction, as though going in and out of focus in a hazily intentional way. Borsic stands out as the almost conventional player here; Berger is close behind though sounding very unlike a jazz drummer despite an intense degree of rhythmic diversity; and Petit adds layers of oddity that all three play in and around.

It's hard to describe the results, except to say that this listener, steeped in "serious" free jazz, non-idiomatic improv, and ea-improv, finds the album a real hoot. Their sense of humor has had this in rotation on my stereo, and I'm still scratching my head at what they're doing.
