Lawrence Casserley & Jean-Michel Van Schouwburg: Mouth Wind

Read "Mouth Wind" reviewed by John Eyles


Recorded in May, 2010 at Lawrence Casserley's studio in the Chiltern Hills, Buckinghamshire, Mouth Wind is a happy pairing of Casserley's signal processing with the idiosyncratic vocals of Belgium's Jean-Michel van Schouwburg, a pairing which benefits both of them greatly. The duo format suits each of the two in a different way; in larger groupings such as Evan Parker's Electroacoustic Ensemble or a tutti at Fête Quaqua at The Vortex, Casserley's contributions can occasionally be too subtle or muted to ...

Lawrence Casserley / Adam Linson: Integument

Read "Integument" reviewed by John Eyles


Lawrence Casserley and Adam Linson have well-established links with Evan Parker and with each other. Both have previous releases on Psi and since 2004 both have been members of Parker's Electro-Acoustic Ensemble. That is highly relevant to the music on Integument as that ensemble features real-time processing of sound, as does this album.

Lawrence Casserley & Simon Desorgher: Music from ColourDome

Read "Music from ColourDome" reviewed by John Eyles

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
