Bought this for John Edwards, one of my favorite bassists, but Sarah Gail Brand is the star. The songs seem to glide between composed and improvised passages with ease. I really enjoy her playing, both intense and subtle, adding bits of texture throughout. The rest of the band is top-notch, goes without saying.
Always happy to find a new (to me) voice in free jazz. arbitify
I have the Sound 323 mini-cd that comprised some of this music (recorded in the shop's minuscule cellar performance space),so it is very welcome to hear the rest...
It is astonishing music...Derek Bailey was so unique (playing the guitar like it was a found object but belying the incredible skill he brought to the process) and Simon Fell is his equal here (this is a true collaboration).
Rare and special.
