Playlist: June 5, 2009

KZSU playlist for Friday, June 5, 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

….. Should I mention the Matthew Sperry concerts again? See earlier entry.

Source: Limited Sedition….. Actually I will mention this: As the festival has evolved from year to year, the local Limited Sedition label has been releasing CD-Rs of Matthew Sperry performances, mastered from live tapes. The first was a set of solo bass performances; the most recent is a second all-solo, all-bass disk. Matthew’s playing included a lot of extended technique: sticking objects into the strings, scraping the bass body with mallets, etc., so the results are a percussive exploration of sound.

Source: AUM Fidelity….. Fully Celebrated, formerly the Fully Celebrated Orchestra (even though they were always three or four people), puts up catchy, even funky heads followed by chaotic, free-jazz soloing. Loads of fun.

….. Forgas Band Phenomena is new stuff played in the old ’70s prog vein: long suites, searing guitar, woodwinds in the band. Cuneiform always puts out nice stuff, but at first glance, this is a standout.

Source:Pi Recordings….. Corey Wilkes‘ Abstrakt Pulse puts up hard-bop composing spread against free-jazz soloing — stuff that’s way out there when it breaks orbit. It’s not strictly head-solo-head patterns, either; “SICK JJ,” played here, pretty much stays in improv/free mode, while “Visionary of an Abstrakt” uses a recurring theme to punctuate a variety of exploratory, off-topic solos. On the way, the album sports one-minute free-improv interludes. Wilkes is only turning 30, but he’s the one who was picked to fill Lester Bowie’s chair in the Art Ensemble of Chicago.

Album titles link into KZSU’s Zookeeper database; the Album Review icon means there’s a review or description there as well. Little links that say things like “more here” go to previous entries in this blog.
