CF 322 CD - Kris Davis Infrasound "Save Your Breath"
masterpiece is a major work for Kris Davis and her definititive
breakthrough as a major composer in XXI century American music. Grea
line up and total dedication from all musicians involved. Soundwise this
is also a top recording.
If you're following Kris recordings you know that she never repeats herself rather looking for new ways of expression.
CF 325 CD - Dre Hocevar Trio "Coding of Evidentiality"
On their twenties this is new generation music, pointing to the future and surely very serious.
New York is their base and Anthony Braxton, Steve Lehman, Joe Morris are inspirations not copied.
I'm trully amazed with this guys and I can tell you there's more to come on this new scene of open mind musicians.
De Looze, Lester St.Louis (this is his first recording), Dre Hocevar
and ocasionally Sam Pluta demonstrate clearly that there's many ways to
play and think music these days.
CF 326 CD - All Included "Satan in Plain Clothes"
democratic band explore Jon Rune Strøm (Universal Indians, PNL Large
Unit) and Martin Küchen's (Angles, Trespass Trio) compositions and it
also features Thomas Johansson (Fire! Orchestra, Cortex, Friends and
Neighbours, PNL Large Unit), Mats Äleklint (Angles, Je Suis, PNL Large
Unit), Tollef Østvang (Friends and Neighbours, Universal Indians). This
is a showcase of how can european musicians play an invocation of free
jazz with a form, mind and heart.
LP coming out soon.
CF 328 CD - Universal Indians + Joe McPhee "Skullduggery"
Universal Indians invited Joe McPhee to be part of upcoming tours and
recording they wanted the original spirit of american free jazz. Joe
brought his knowledge and great spirit uplifting the music in his
melodic and profound way. Results are beautiful as Dikeman's fury is
complemented by McPhee's poetry and lyrical approach and rythm section
is a powerhouse sometimes to turn into delicacy when the music asks for
LP coming out soon.
CF 329 CD - Gard Nilssen´s Acoustic Unity "Firehouse"
Debut for master Norwegian drummer Gard Nilssen as a leader.
with Bushman´s Revenge, Cortex and Puma certainly gave him credit to do
so and this is an outstanding debut alongside with André Roligheten on
saxophones and Petter Eldh on bass, they play urgent and dynamic
compositions opening up for improvisation taking no prisoners. This is
not free jazz and has certainly a norwegian feel but totally their own
way. Sometimes Thomas Chapin comes to mind.
LP coming out soon.
CF 330 CD - Hugo Carvalhais "Grand Valis"
Inspired by Robert K. Dick book "Valis" this is very cinematic music.
keeps showcasing his skills as a bass player, composer and visionary in
his own right and after "Nebulosa" and "Particula", this is a step
further with a drumless band featuring a great colorist as Jeremy
Pinto and Domique Pifarelly close this unorthodox but very
inspirational band. Check the video "Logos" on youtube and you'll see
what I mean. Great record.
CF 331 CD - Lama + Joachim Badenhorst "The Elephant's Journey"
chapter of Lama's way to create an unique sound coming from Gonçalo
Almeida, Susana Santos Silva and Greg Smith's minds. Open music with
steady guidelines, slow burn and catchy melodies with a true melodicist
as a guest, Joachim Badenhorst. Recorded after a tour it's obvious how
they took the music solid to the studio.
CF 332 CD - Joe Hertenstein's HNH
release of "HNH" on Clean Feed developing intricate original
compositions mixed with controlled improvisation with very strong
concept. I love this one even better than their first and black album.
This is good, very good.
CF 333 CD - Double-Basse "This is Not Art"
Exploring the bass sound of the bass and double bass clarinet this is a delicious record.
you like me love deep bass sounds this is something not to be missed.
Totally improvised this record is very unique as you will see for
CF 334 CD - Sousa/Berthling/Ferrandini "Casa Futuro"
This trio record is a step forward in Sousa and Ferrandini developing through free music.
Here with Johan Bethling they seek for the melody rather than their usual outstanding use of tension/release.
Recorded at Lisbon's Culturgest at their first meeting this is a great example of immediate chemical empathy.
