I saw that here were people with clear sight and great ears creating a musical family, which seemed far removed from the compromises of the commercial mainstream. And yet bringing beautiful, intelligent, forward looking music to a similarly thoughtful audience.
It features Price on piano, with cello, soprano voice, string orchestra, modular synth, tape effects, and electronics.
The cello and soprano vocal parts were written specifically and directly for cellist Peter Gregson and vocalist Ashley Knight, whose expressive voice features on tracks "Maitri" and "The Uncertainly Principle. Other elements include street sounds from Budapest captured and processed on Price's mobile phone, as well as chamber music recorded direct to tape with vintage microphones in single takes. Price describes the album's conceptual foundation: "Entanglement is a very personal expression of my obsessions: music, love, physics, and the inter-connectedness of things.
There is structure and freedom, chaos and control, and the beauty of ancient instruments set against impassive machines I wanted to make an album that sounded like a dark, Berlin record store discovery from the '30s. Something that had timeless emotive power, and pre-digital rawness. Something that I hope would make a deeper connection in superficially networked times. I think there is a duty for artists to be honest, and vulnerable. Because then there is a possibility of real connection. Entanglement is both honest and vulnerable and to go through the two-year process of writing, refining, and recording an album has been more intense and more beautiful than I could have possibly imagined" --Michael Price.
Recorded and mixed at Vox-Ton, Berlin. Extremely Serious Business marked a turning point, a return to a more acoustic setting while remaining true to the pioneering spirit of "improvisation along the edges.
This previously unreleased album features mostly a traditional acoustic jazz-guitar sound, but also includes two tracks with guitar synthesizer out front. All tracks were recorded with "live" musicians with the exception "Song for My Father," done in duo with drummer Tom Garner, with overdubbing. Thomas says, "Equally noteworthy is the incredible mix present throughout.
Unlike previous recordings where the guitar sometimes appears either too far back or the sound too tinny and less full, this album exceeds previous mix attempts in achieving both balance and clarity. Thomas: guitar, guitar synthesizer, keyboards, electric bass; Greg Burke: piano, synthesizer; Paul Beaudry: contrabass; Tom Garner: drums; Avi Rothbard: guitar on "Yesterdays.

Thomas was enlisted as a sideman by both Jimmy McGriff and Joe Henderson for recordings and concerts. He joined the Art Taylor Quartet in and performed with it until In he received the endorsement of the National Endowments "Arts America" program, on whose active list he remained for ten years. State Department program. Since his return to the United States in , he has appeared with his own quartet, trio, and an updated version of Extremely Serious Business that performs his own compositions.
This is the first time that this album has been released on CD. It is a significant album in Mr. Thomas's discography as the first use on record of a prototype pickup system invented by Professor Dr.
Nourney's innovative device features a "hexcentric pickup" -- one pickup for each individual string -- converting pitch to voltage, and an exciter pickup used to create a magnetic field to induce vibration of each string independently. This means the player could not only hold any note without further electronic manipulation, but even play the instrument with one hand if desired. John D. First vinylization of the CD-R release, with which Daniel Bachman shucked the performing name he'd been using Sacred Harp and laid his naked ass on the line.
Bachman already sounds like a wizened player here an image that was solidified when his mug was plastered on the box for Tompkins Square's "Obscure Giants of Acoustic Guitar" trading cards , but he was actually still a babe of the Fredericksburg woods at the time this came out. Regardless, his technique is massive, and his approach to the material -- based on a color-wheel tuning system developed by the late Robbie Basho -- is intense.
Recorded onto a boom-box, with a hi-fi quotient of nil, the material here reminds one of what Bill Orcutt might sound like if he decided to play in longer format time-chunks. There's a wonderful kind of containment to the music -- suggesting deep investigation and improvisation with hermetic knowledge rather than anything constrictive -- which gives this album a sense of spirituality one rarely finds outside the New Age bin. Bachman is a master player, and the evidence of this is apparent even at this relatively early stage of his trajectory.
Through constant touring and wood-sheddding, Daniel's music has evolved in multiple directions over the intervening years, but Grey-Black-Green remains one of the true and unique high watermarks of his recordings. How great to have it on vinyl at long last. Includes a download code.
Whether recording with mysterious free jazz units such as Gross, or the original Barn Owl the trio with Matt Weston and Chris Cooper , or playing with one of the countless live bands he's been in, Crespo is a commandingly smoky, mysterious, and powerful presence. Feeding Tube is tickled pink to present Crespo's first solo vinyl -- two side-long excursions of bass-generated sounds that'll roam your interior fields like a cloud of bees searching for nico-nectar.
And this pudding blazes. Maybe the best way to think of it is to imagine a large man's dream of what Billy Mure's Supersonic Guitars LPs might sound like if they were given a truly post-modern twist. That is some deep space, baby. So give the artist a cigarette. Maybe he'll share his coffee" --Byron Coley, Cover art by Ted Lee.

Limited edition of Scott Seward of John Doe Jr. In the course of their conversations, Scott learned that Bob had -- in a former life -- done some experimental sound recording, portions of which featured his own homemade string instrument: the Brunt-Milter. Eventually, Bob was able to turn up tapes of two finished pieces.
Both were begun with the Brunt-Milter in , then finished off with added sound sources and mixing in When they were started, Cantius had just finished his arts degree at Montclair State University, and was working in a dirt-floored studio in Paterson.
He then spent three years getting a Masters at NYU Film School, and that's when he added the new work to his instrumental beginnings. The music is a great collage of strange strings, street recordings some made by Bob while he was doing sound for film shoots , and various effects, techniques, and radio manipulations.
It's a rather remarkable find, and documents a style of experimental thinking and creativity that was common at the time, but usually ended up in the dumpsters of history. Includes text related to the little-known Happenings scene at Montclair State and other secret histories" --Byron Coley, Includes booklet by Scott Seward and Byron Coley; limited edition of We did not find it, but we were hungry because we had just finished our first performance as The MPs at Dennis Tyfus's free funk festival in the 'hood.
I was reading from the book of my writing Dennis had issued a year previously. Ted Lee was playing a cymbal he had borrowed from Dennis six months earlier, falsely promising to return it filled with fresh urine.
