Johnathon Barber – Vision Ahead – Vision Ahead

The drummers highly-anticipated debut album. Featuring pianist Taber Gable, guitarist Andrew Renfroe, saxophonist Godwin Louis, bassist Matt Dwonszyk, and vocalists Denise Renee and Sasha Foster (collectively and eponymously known as the album title), Vision Ahead is Barber’s product of six years spent cultivating a distinct and immaculately tailored sound with like-minded musicians who, together, now present themselves as an undeniable, sonically-solid unit. Vision Ahead serves as a showcase of the fresh prospects that can be envisioned and the greatness that can be achieved when one is forced to face unanticipated, desolating life-challenges.

It started with the WOW signal. Then the Voyager spacecraft Improv artists around the world play to the interstellar sound recordings made by the Voyager spacecraft. Space – we are answering, are you listening? recordings appeared one day on his screen. Listening to the sounds from space, he was entranced. He recognized the sounds… “This is part of the sound I have been hearing in my head all these years”. Then he wanted to see what would happen when other musicians heard them. What if each musician improvised with the Voyager sounds without hearing the others? Would the separate recordings make music together?

Disc One
Henry Kaiser – 18 string harp guitar (California), Martin Kuchen – sax (Sweden), Jeff Coffin – sax (Nashville), Damon Smith – acoustic bass (Massachusetts), Tanya Chen – piano (San Francisco), Jordan Muscatello – electric bass (London), Roger Turner – drums (London). Ed Pettersen – guitar (London)
They selected four of the nine Voyager recordings from the NASA site. Each musician went into the studio alone and improvised to the Voyager track. The individual musician tracks were mixed against the backdrop of the original Voyager recording.

Mia Dyberg Trio – Wil’s Swing – Ticket!

Recorded in January 2017 at Lademann in Copenhagen, Denmark

Mia Dyberg alto saxophone
Asger Thomsen double bass
Dag Magnus Narvesen drums

2018 Clean Feed CF487CD

“You may label the music recorded in Ticket! as free jazz, but nothing here conforms with what you usually hear with that identity. Why? Because alto saxophonist Mia Dyberg, double bassist Asger Thomsen and drummer Dag Magnus Narvesen transpose to music the processes used by William S. Burroughs in his poetry, and not only the cut-up techniques of that Beat Generation icon: there’s much of the playfulness, the pulse and the “silver smoke of dreams” which define Burroughs’ writing.

The music is energetic and full of groove, sometimes melodic, others with a hint of the bluesy AACM influence, the group improvisations never hiding the individual contributions of these three Scandinavian musicians.

Dyberg is a Danish saxophonist, improviser and composer based in Berlin and one of the new exciting voices on the European jazz scene, crossing sound experimentation and the characteristic Swedish melancholy in collaborations with improvisers like Herb Robertson, Clayton Thomas, Tristan Honsinger and Axel Dorner.
Thomsen is a constant presence in the Copenhagen scene, be it alternative rock, creative jazz or avant-garde music, and Narvesen is becoming a percussionist of first choice for many improvising European and American luminaries. Together, they’re either explosive and impressionistic, wild and lyrical. “-Clean Feed

Dave Ballou and BeepHonk – Fluffer Nutter – The Windup

Recorded at The Windup Space, in Baltimore, Maryland, on March 27th, 2017

Dave Ballou trumpet
Anthony Pirog guitar, effects
Adam Hopkins double bass
Mike Kuhl drums, cymbals

2018 Clean Feed CF489CD

“The title of this debut album from the band BeepHonk refers to the place where it all started in 2011: the Windup Space, in Baltimore. There, bassist Adam Hopkins organized weekly concerts through the Out Of Your Head Collective, which presented performances of improvisers in one-time-only combinations.

Most never performed as a band again, but one remained active to this day, albeit in intervals due to the filled agendas of their members. Continuing thereafter as BeepHonk, Hopkins, guitarist Anthony Pirog (The Messthetics) and drummer Mike Kuhl assembled themselves around the trumpeter and composer Dave Ballou (Solo Trumpet, Clean Feed 2015), known for his appearances in both mainstream and creative jazz.

They attempted a studio album, only to discover that the improvisations so central to the project were simultaneously more loose and focused in front of an audience. As a result, in 2017 they returned to The Windup Space to record its namesake album live. This is the happy result – a magnificent document of the virtues of collective interplay and creative score reading.

There are some recognizable factors, like the way a simple line introduced by Ballou organizes everything, reminiscent of Steve Lacy, and Pirog’s use of delays and loops. The rest is very much their own thing, generally with short tunes beginning, developing and ending in a very natural way, without a single gram of fat.” -Clean Feed

Jacob Anderskov with Agnostic Revelations – Sand – Granular Alchemy

” … fantastic Danish pianist Jacob Anderskov … , The pianist’s compositions unfold slowly, but they feel linear. Cleaver gives the music an appealing slipperiness with his ability to smear time—accelerating and decelerating, playing ballad tempo against the grain on “Sediments,” turning pulse into something that throbs more than it ticks.” – Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader

Jacob Anderskov piano
Chris Speed tenor saxophone, clarinet
Michael Formanek contrabass
Gerald Cleaver drums

2012 ILK Music ILK195CD

“This quartet brings together different threads in my production in a way I had dreamed about for some time. It draws upon the large-scale music I have composed for a.o. Anderskov Accident, and yet has a spirit and a kind of awareness also found in my smaller groups and in my solo work.
The compositions here are all from a larger series of compositions with a metaphori- cal starting point concerning basic elements/ materials. (Other compositions from that series – a.o. Bone, Water, Wood & Soil – have found their way into the repertoire of other ensembles, and will probably appear on future albums).
The album title (Granular Alchemy) refers to these materials, with a focus on partly their tactility, partly the mental concept of them in culture/religion & science over the millenia, and partly the possible chances of transforming the materials or the concepts of them through conscious or mystic human actions.
It is an ongoing adventure to play this music with these musicians. I am grateful to be allowed to experience this.” –Jacob Anderskov

With five Voyager tracks still left to play with, including ones of a more complicated and dynamic nature, Part two of the experiment was to have three improvisers live in a room responding to the recording fed into the room. Live with no edits or overdub.

A Polish trumpeter and composer. Stańko is strongly associated with free jazz and the avant-garde.

Coming to prominence in the early 1960s alongside pianist Adam Makowicz in the Jazz Darings, Stańko collaborated with pianist Krzysztof Komeda on Komeda’s album Astigmatic, recorded in late 1965.  In 1968 Stańko formed an acclaimed quintet that included Zbigniew Seifert on violin and alto saxophone, and in 1975 he formed the Tomasz Stańko-Adam Makowicz Unit.

Stańko established a reputation as a leading figure not only in Polish jazz, but on the world stage as well, working with many notable musicians, including Jack DeJohnette, Dave Holland, Reggie Workman,Rufus Reid, Lester Bowie, David Murray, Manu Katché, Chico Freeman and Cecil Taylor. He sadly passed away on July 29th.

Charles Lloyd – Autumn Sequence – Live 1966

2018 : Hi Hat Label – Having burst onto the national scene with Chico Hamilton s band in 1960, Memphis-born Charles Lloyd spent two years with Cannonball Adderley before forming his own quartet in 1965, featuring the young Keith Jarrett, Cecil McBee and Jack DeJohnette. By turns melodic and dissonant, the relentlessly experimental and innovative music they made is typified on these superb sets, originally broadcast on radio, and presented here together with background notes and images. The tracks on his show are from a Cologne radio broadcast on October 26th

Eric Revis Trio – Crowded Solitudes (for B.K.) – Crowded Solitudes

2016 : Clean Feed –   Eric Revis Trio, this time with Gerald Cleaver on drums  The brilliant   Kris Davis onpiano. Although the music is different from previously work, the principles, objectives and personality are the same, coming from the mind and heart of the same man who has plucked his double bass for 17 years with the Branford Marsalis Quartet. “Crowded Solitudes” is another example of Revis’s “back-to-the-future” philosophy: the invention of the future of jazz is rooted in its past and tradition.

Stephanie Richards – Full Moon Parts 1 and 2 – Fullmoon

2018 : Relative Pitch Records – Stephanie Richards trumpet, flugelhorn, percussion
Dino J.A. Deane sampler, live sampler.  With the release of Fullmoon, trumpeter and composer Stephanie Richards joins the ranks of Susana Santos Silva, Franz Hautzinger, Peter Evans and Nate Wooley. This enlightened group of trumpeters have taken the art of the solo to new heights with various combinations of extended technique, microtonality, free improvisation and electronic/acoustic experimentation. Here, Richards touches on almost all of the above with her inventively deployed playing.    Electronics player Dino J.A. Deane, whom Richards met through a mutual association with Butch Morris, is on hand with his sampler. Fullmoon is highly experimental in nature.  Despite the inquisitive environment on Fullmoon, Richards plays it close to the acoustic nature of the trumpet and flugelhorn letting Deane provide the morphed-in electronic layers.

Ornette Coleman – European Echoes – Ornette Coleman Trio Live Manchester Free Trade Hall 1966

2018 : Hi Hat – Ornette Coleman Trio, live at the Manchester Free Trade Hall on May 14th 1966 Ornette Coleman formed a new trio with bassist David Izenzon and drummer Charles Moffett in October 1961. As the decade progressed, they expanded their musical palette to include trumpet and violin not instruments Coleman was experienced on and divided audiences and critics with their fiercely uncompromising music. Originally broadcast on FM radio during a short British tour, this remarkable set finds them on typically confrontational form.

Eric Revis- Rye Eclipse – Sing Me Some Cry

2017 : Clean Feed  –  On  “Sing Me Some Cry”   he goes a long way beyond anything he’s achieved before. “Sing” is the next step beyond 2013’s “Parallax” (Clean Feed) which I will feature later, his first recorded pairing with multi-reedist and MacArthur Fellow Ken Vandermark, the Chicago experimental scion. It shows Revis’ astoundingly flexible range with a huge grounded sound. Vandermark returns to this session in a quartet with Kris Davis (Revis’ frequent trio partner in a handful of recorded dates with drummer Andrew Cyrille), and a former Chicagoan, Chad Taylor, whom the bassist employed on his acclaimed 2014 quartet session “In Memory of Things Yet Seen.”  Ttraditional vocabulary, free-bop and more, with a continued indifference to established aesthetic ideologies.
