Kyle Bruckmann's Wrack: …Awaits Silent Tristero’s Empire

Read "…Awaits Silent Tristero’s Empire" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Quarantatre anni, un po' chicagoano e un po' californiano, Kyle Bruckmann conferma in questo suo nuovo lavoro quanto sia per lui irrinunciabile tenere il piede in più scarpe. A suo tempo intruppato come fisarmonicista e tastierista in una “sgangherata rock band" (la definizione non è nostra) come i Lozenge, Bruckmann se n'è poi venuto fuori -fra ...


Kyle Bruckmann's Wrack: ...Awaits Silent Tristero's Empire

Read "...Awaits Silent Tristero's Empire" reviewed by Troy Collins

...Awaits Silent Tristero's Empire is an epic four-part suite based on the fictitious songs found scattered throughout celebrated author Thomas Pynchon's early novels V., The Crying of Lot 49, and Gravity's Rainbow. Oboist Kyle Bruckmann conceived this post-modern “musical phantasmagoria" as the first long-form composition written for Wrack, his experimental chamber jazz ensemble, employing an expanded ...

Kyle Bruckmann's Wrack: Intents & Purposes

Read "Intents & Purposes" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

On Intents & Purposes, Kyle Bruckmann returns with a new Wrack, revising the lineup of the group which released its self-titled debut in 2003. Anton Hatwich (bass) and Jason Stein (bass clarinet) replace Kurt Johnson (bass) and Jeb Bishop (trombone), out of circumstance rather than necessity. Bruckmann's vision and direction continue to work in the clasp ...


Kyle Bruckmann's Wrack: Intents & Purposes

Read "Intents & Purposes" reviewed by Nic Jones

Peter Hammill once described working with Van Der Graaf Generator as “serious fun," and anyone familiar with that band's music will have an idea also of the ambiguity of his description. VDGG specialised in a strain of the gothic as set down in literary terms by Edgar Allan Poe, and for all the idiomatic differences between ...


Kyle Bruckmann's Wrack: Intents & Purposes

Read "Intents & Purposes" reviewed by Troy Collins

Following oboist Kyle Bruckmann's self-titled 2003 Toucan Records debut, Intents & Purposes finds his Wrack ensemble exploring a similar program of experimental chamber jazz. Bruckmann effortlessly occupies the space between jazz and classical music, generating movements of somber reflection one minute, turbulent intensity the next. From Morton Feldman-esque minimalism to Charles Ives-like bluster, Wrack has few ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
