The Rempis Percussion Quartet: Sud Des Alpes

Read "Sud Des Alpes" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Sometimes a band hits a stretch, much like an athlete with a hot hand, and produces a string of special recordings. Sud Des Alpes is The Rempis Percussion Quartet's tenth release and it follows Cochonnerie (Aerophonic, 2017). Like all the quartet's releases except Montreal Parade (482 Music, 2011), it captures a live performance. This at AMR ...

Read "Cochonnerie" reviewed by John Sharpe


An unchanged line up on the eighth release from saxophonist Dave Rempis' Percussion Quartet signals a generous helping of rowdy energy and inspired oratory. As the name implies, the drums loom large with two distinctive practitioners in Tim Daisy on the left and Frank Rosaly on the right well separated in the mix (from information supplied ...

The Rempis Percussion Quartet: Cash And Carry

Read "Cash And Carry" reviewed by John Sharpe


Ornette Coleman was one of the first to use two drummers in a smaller ensemble for his seminal double quartet Free Jazz (Atlantic, 1961).

The Rempis Percussion Quartet: Montreal Parade

Read "Montreal Parade" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Descriptive misdirection seems to be an important element in some sectors of the jazz world today. A group called The Nels Cline Singers puts out records where nary a vocalist can be found, and The Rempis Percussion Quartet is two members shy of being a full-fledged percussion outfit. While Cline's band uses a moniker that lacks ...

Read "Hunter-Gatherers" reviewed by John Sharpe


Recorded live on tour at the Hunter-Gatherer club in Columbia, South Carolina, this double CD is the third release from saxophonist Dave Rempis' The Rempis Percussion Quartet, and a logical progression for what has been called one of the best live bands in Chicago. Rempis' most high profile gig is providing the improvisational firepower ...
