Ben Goldberg Goes Low: Update

I’m double-posting this, just because the original post is so far down the queue by now…

Here’s a sample of Ben Goldberg’s new band, Unfold Ordinary Mind. It’s been on Soundcloud for a month, but I didn’t think to check; thanks to Ben for pointing it out.

The song is apparently called “xcpf.” It’s a nice tune, with Nels Cline in rhythm mode at first and in slinky layered effects mode later. In between, the two saxes and Nels’ guitar all criss-cross with simultaneous melodic soloing while Goldberg, as promised, holds down the bass.

[UPDATE 2/1/13: That track got removed, but here’s another one, called “Stemwinder,” more of a ballad.]
