Michiyo Yagi, Paal Nilssen-Love, Lasse Marhaug
Angular Mass
PNL Records
Valutazione: * * * ½

Trio anomalo quello formato dal batterista norvegese Paal Nilssen-Love, dal mago dell'elettronica Lasse Marhaug e dalla virtuosa di koto Michiyo Yagi. E trio particolarmente convincente. I primi due brani ne rivelano il lato dionisiaco, ...

Benjamin Duboc/Julien Desprez/Julien Loutelier: Tournesol

Read "Tournesol" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The free improvisations by Benjamin Duboc, Julien Desprez, and Julien Loutelier on Tournesol or “Sunflower" bring to mind the lyrics to “Love Dance," a minor crossover hit for George Benson in 1980: “From too much talk to loving touches/Love touches when pure emotion takes the moment/We take the chance/Turn up the quiet, love wants to dance." ...

Read "Dave Rempis: Zen Master" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The best application of philosophy to improvised music is the Chinese concept of “wu-wei." The best translation of this is “no trying." Many listeners have the false impression that it takes a sophisticated ear or at least years of listening to “get" improvised music. Actually, the opposite is true. The key is wu-wei or the art ...

Brute Force: Brute Force

Read "Brute Force" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Faithful to its name, the young Norwegian noise-improv trio Brute Force is determined to make its point loud--loudest by any standard--and clear. This trio's brutal sonic raison d'être derives its reckless power from negation of improvisational forms in jazz and rock, the classic trio format, and even daily life in peaceful Norway. Revolt is the essence. ...

Dave Rempis / Lasse Marhaug: Naancore
