Obstreperous | A New Wave of Jazz | 66:19
FUBAR the quietude & screw the solace — this is the tidal bleeding edge of the New Wave of Jazz: Ether, Jazz, Discordant Din & organized Noise comprise this TONUS sampler — a month ahead of their collective April 15th release.
Muchas gracias to Señor Serries for the codes to these gems (received this morning, mix crafted after dinner) . . . which keep getting better & better as they hone improvisation to an art-form (multiple guitars, alto & baritone saxophones, piano, double bass, viola, drums & percussion, harmonica, melodica, bass clarinet . . .).
Of all the previously clustered releases, this batch represents my favorite. I immediately donned my wireless Jaybirds & began perusing the individual play-lists with which to cobble together this sampler — even adding several of the full albums to the many & varied playlists on my phone . . . for play-back via my car’s system.
All of that so say, these guys (& Martina, too) are getting better the more they play together!
So . . . whether it’s COVID-19 or Tax Season that’s disrupting your peace-of-mind . . . wrap your ears around this:
Starts soft, gets NOISY!!
