Peter Evans & Levy Lorenzo
Roulette
April 15, 2019

Trumpeter Peter Evans is a very familiar figure on the extreme scene, but the percussionist and electronicist Levy Lorenzo will be a new name to most folks. The pair have been jointly penning compositions, but these nevertheless have the feel of ...

Stephanie Richards: Take the Neon Lights

Read "Take the Neon Lights" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Sono due gli elementi principali che emergono all'ascolto di Take the Neon Lights : la straordinaria tecnica strumentale di Steph Richards, nella scia di innovatori come Nate Wooley e Peter Evans, ed una scrittura decisamente originale, anomala, anticonvenzionale. Al secondo album da leader, dopo l'eccellente debutto con l'elettronico Fullmoon, Richards scopre definitivamente le carte mettendo in ...

Frame Trio: Luminária

Read "Luminária" reviewed by John Sharpe

With freely improvised music, you have to trust that the performers will take you somewhere you want to go and that the journey itself will be as worthwhile as the destination, if not more so. Those expectations are more than met by the Frame Trio on Luminária, the first album by the collective of trumpeter Luís ...

Christian Lillinger: Open Form For Society

Read "Open Form For Society" reviewed by Mark Corroto

German drummer and über composer Christian Lillinger might be best known for his ensemble Grund which has released several outstanding recordings since 2009. He can also be found in good company with musicians like Peter Evans, Samo Šalamon, Luís Lopes, Pascal Niggenkemper, Tobias Delius and Achim Kaufmann, to name but a few heavy hitters with whom ...

Kaja Draksler / Petter Eldh / Christian Lillinger: Punkt.Vrt.Plastik

Read "Punkt.Vrt.Plastik" reviewed by John Sharpe

Three outrageously talented up-and-coming players on the European scene join energies on a program of spiky attitude based around rhythmically dynamic foundations. German drummer Christian Lillinger and Swedish bassist Petter Eldh may be best known as the potent bedrock of the Amok Amor Quartet which featured trumpeter Peter Evans. Now they fulfill the same function in ...

Provenance, Mal de mer, Duration: Evan Parker and Peter Evans at Solilóquios in Porto

Read "Provenance, Mal de mer, Duration: Evan Parker and Peter Evans at Solilóquios in Porto" reviewed by Arian Bagheri Pour Fallah

Provenance Evan Parker needs little introduction. To the listener and to the critic, clearly, but above all to the formation of musical matter. The rudiments of his making are well obscured twenty seconds in after he enkindles the first note. He plays the saxophone durably--static, in deathlike stillness. It is easy, in fact, to mistake his ...

Peter Evans / Sam Pluta: Two Live Sets

Read "Two Live Sets" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The most extraordinary music ever presented has elicited the same time-honored “what the f@#k was that?" response. From Elvis (both Presley and Costello) to Grandmaster Flash, Igor Stravinsky, and Charlie Parker, the “shock of the new'" (to borrow a phrase from art critic Robert Hughes) adjusts listeners' criteria for judging a composition or performance, and often ...

Peter Evans / Barry Guy: Syllogistic Moments

Read "Syllogistic Moments" reviewed by John Sharpe

From the first few seconds of the opening “Red Green" onwards, this live recording from trumpeter Peter Evans and bassist Barry Guy is a feat of death defying bravura. The two are among the most utterly distinctive practitioners on their instruments and they create a fast evolving kaleidoscope of preposterous sounds. Evans named his record label ...

Cory Smythe: Circulate Susanna

Read "Circulate Susanna" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Cory Smythe tells stories. About stories. Specifically, a father's tales in the rural heartland of America; ingredients that a listener might assume had shaped Smythe's imagination in ways that go far beyond music. But like the Stephen Foster discs spinning on the gramophone as a tornado approaches, Smythe's nostalgic and inspirational world is liner-note fantasy. Nevertheless, ...
