Part of a sequence of locational solo Bass saxophone recordings, yours for nothing!
It’s tempting (and not entirely inaccurate) to call Tony-Joe Bucklash a transcontinental supergroup of 21st century avant garde music. Brits Bevan and Lash, American Morris and Australian Buck are all major players on the world stage, experienced in out-sounds ranging from raucous free-jazz to minimal improv.
Tony-Joe Bucklash brings together Tony Bevan on Soprano, Tenor and Bass Saxophones, Joe Morris on Electric Guitar, Tony Buck on Drums and Dominic Lash on Double Bass. Recorded by Dominic Lash at The Rising Sun, Reading, England on the 1st of November 2009.
The NHAM Quartet began in May of 2000 when British Bass/Tenor saxophonist Tony Bevan went to Chicago for a series of gigs with American stars trombonist Jeb Bishop and percussionist Michael Zerang.
A star-laden international quartet convened by leading contemporary saxophonist Tony Bevan, the group features Jazz legend/ECM artist Barre Phillips, Perrier and BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year Matthew Bourne, and Tony Buck of cult Australian band The Necks
The first studio recording by Sunny Murray’s long-standing European Trio, and their strongest statement yet.
Recorded in one afternoon session amongst the delectable environs of the lounge, hallway and kitchen-diner of Valley Wood Studios, The Money Notes captures Bourne Davis Kane at their most spontaneous and inventive.
Could Sunny Murray’s left foot actually be the engine at the heart of the universe? That’s what it feels like throughout this live set, recorded at the Vortex in North London, as his clashing hi-hat cymbals churn away relentlessly, the outward manifestation of his internal, eternal sense of abstract swing
All told, A Big Hand is about as far in mood and texture as you can imagine from Bevan’s other electronics-inflected improv project, Bruise, but the results are just as unusual and rewarding.
