Urs Leimgruber - Andreas Willers - Alvin Curran - Fabrizio Spera: Rome-Ing

Read "Rome-Ing" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

These venerable European improvisers tease and taunt the listeners' psyches with free-form minimalist sound-shaping designs and subdued inner-workings with gradual buildups and asynchronous movements, countered by explosive episodes of angst, tinted with creaky sub-motifs. With four lengthy works recorded live in Rome--hence, the album title—American pianist Alvin Curran and Swiss guitarist Andreas Willers incorporate electronics into ...

Andreas Willers / Urs Leimgruber: Pale White Shout

Read "Pale White Shout" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Guitarist Andreas Willers (Germany) and saxophonist Urs Leimgruber (Switzerland) are among Europe's most prominent improvisers and free-thinkers. On this outing their experimental metrics are quite rangy and focused, offering the antithesis to a madcap free-form blowing session. The duo alternates between controlled thematic buildups and subdued encounters with polytonal dialogues along with certain parts that elicit ...

The Scrambling Ex: The Scrambling Ex

Read "The Scrambling Ex" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Deftly juggling twisted harmonic sequences, free improvised passages, sweet and simple jazz melodies, and stop-on-a-dime rhythmic convolutions, The Scrambling Ex nods at all sorts of musical reference points without aping anyone in particular. An equal collaboration between multi- reed player Peter Van Huffel, guitarist Andreas Willers, and percussionist Oliver Steidle (who's since been replaced by the ...

Andreas Willers: Orange Years

Read "Orange Years" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Questo nuovo album del chitarrista tedesco Andreas Willers è il degno compare del precedente album in solo Drowning Migrant (Leo Records) uscito lo scorso anno. Ci sono differenze importanti a livello strutturale, anche se la chitarra di Willers rimane ben identificabile nella sua capacità di trascendere i linguaggi per giungere alle soglie del suono nudo e ...
