Chris Dahlgren: Cherubs Contemplating Tacky Bass Figurines In Heaven

Read "Chris Dahlgren: Cherubs Contemplating Tacky Bass Figurines In Heaven" reviewed by Mike Jacobs


This sublime track from bassist Chris Dahlgren is really a quasi-classical chamber miniature given the meterless/free treatment by some great jazz-minded musicians. And while the buzz-bassed, noise-meditative mid-section may be enough to throw off a few less-than-committed passengers, it also may be the perfect--if unlikely--foil that turns the whole 9+ minutes into something transcendent. Featuring Tim ...

Vitro is the master of intelligently programmed and produced thematic albums as evidenced by: Catching Some Rays: The Music of Ray Charles (Telarc, 1997); The ...
