Fonda plays some charming flute with some sublime toy-like percussion rustling underneath. I dig when the trio erupts with some swirling, hypnotic, harp-like movements. The trio has a most organic, acoustic and uplifting sound. Contrabassist supreme, Joe Fonda, is often at the center of the storm, plucking and bowing furiously at times and them laying out to let the piano play some superb unaccompanied solos as well as the occasionally duets.
I love the way the music magically speeds up and slows down, the trio working together as one great force of nature. This is an excellent piano trio effort on all fronts. Phosphorescent Dreams presents at the same time, in the same track, even on a single moment, the complex musical schemes and ways of Univers Zero, ranging from maximalism to minimalism, classical avant-garde with a vibe in a constant flux.
In a blend of tension constantly emerging from a subtle dialogue between avant-rock and contemporary influences, harmonies and dissonance, Phosphorescent Dreams is a balanced formula of old-school know-how reshaped almost 40 years after the release of the seminal LP Univers Zero, reissued by Sub Rosa SR LP, Univers Zero represents one of the longest-living bands in Belgium. It was established in Drummer Daniel Denis had the brilliant idea to gather together a team of professionals sharing the same taste for music.
The band has adopted an instrumental progressive style. Over the last couple of decades, the band has also implemented a series of influences from chamber music -- most commonly, chamber music from the 20th century. Even if the line-up changes a lot over the years, the overall sound of UZ remained fairly consistent. It's a new departure for Bob, though the mixture of complexity, simplicity, virtuosity and dramaturgy remain the same. It's a release that will reward repeated listening.
Bob Drake b. Between he played an important role in Denver's underground music scene, and was a founding member of both Thinking Plague and Hail. This is the second full-length release from this unique quintet. One of my best friends and serious music collectors, Jason Roth, recently asked us to get him a copy of this disc.
The other members of the band come from: Rubber Rodeo and other bands I know little or nothing about. I remember digging the first disc since it reminded of those bands: Trapist and Radian, two bands who bridged the gap between the Hatology, Thrill Jockey and Erstwhile labels. No easy feat, I can assure you. What stands out here is the way the band strips things down to a spacious, suspense-filled, a drifting ambiance.
Eerie pedal steel, drone-like skeletal guitars, each note plucked gracefully, an exquisite folk or roots-rock sound, but with little or no drums except for 2 pieces. I like the way the electric and acoustic guitars with minimal piano blend together into a calm flowing stream. Music for an ancient spaghetti western film? At times, it does sound that way. At the end of what would be each LP side, the drums comes in and add a bit somber power to the center of the current.
The results here are most often breath-taking, organic, quietly mesmerizing… we just need some time and space to get on board this warm, magic carpet ride and sail gently on the wind, with several layers of dark, cerebral currents washing over us. I have reviewed a half dozen so far and am amazed at the consistent quality of his varying projects.
Aside form the more than two dozen discs on Relay, Mr. Thanks to Ken Vandermark and other Chicago homeys, the creative music scene there continues to expand and become more diverse. Although this disc was recorded live at Elastic Arts Foundation, the sound is clean and warm, hard to tell it is indeed live.
Lucky us! In a town with several great cellists, Mr. Lonberg-Holm is in a class of his own and is a formidable improviser. The combination of his cello with Ms. Lonbetg-Holm takes a few extraordinary, over-the-top solos here which add some icing to the great tasting cake. There are some interludes where Mr. Daisy plays solo marimba, modest, calm, charming.
There is no break between the pieces here and everything flows together from section to section. This disc is more like modern chamber music yet it is not stuffy or stiff in any way.
This is a difficult feat to pull off in these strange times. Daisy leads several bands or projects simultaneously as well as collaborating with Ken Vandermark, Dave Rempis and James Falzone. For this unique improv session, Mr. Toral has some 20 solo releases, but does occasionally collaborate with experimental musicians.
This appears to be an all-improvised session and the trio take their time, slowly building up their tight-knit sound. It is hard to tell who is doing what at times since Mr. Toral possibly manipulating those sounds in his own unique way. When Mr. Daisy switches to a thumb piano, the trio quiets down to a more dream-like section. Toral does a fine job of bending those analogue-like electronic sounds carefully which Mr.
Daisy spins his rhythmic web around the entire trio. The overall cerebral sound evolves in a most organic way. Yet another side to Mr. Daisy evolving pallete. Here, the Ensemble work within a perpetually detuned framework, their instruments seemingly forever ushering in a ghostly flotilla of decommissioned warplanes whose engines gradually wind down.
Pretty incredible stuff. His extensive back catalogue of recordings set a new standard in experimentation, blending as it does hard bop with elements of gospel, blues, classical and avant-garde.

In , he formed his own jazz orchestra and led the group for almost 50 years, creating innovations like the use of two "split" tenor saxophones, emphasizing the rhythm section, riffing with a big band, using arrangers to broaden their sound, and others.
Despite Basie's death in , the band survived and continued without him. In her lifetime, she won 13 Grammy awards and sold over 40 million albums.
