“Gently shifting hues”? An “introspective form of free jazz”? How’s your Swedish? Peter Bornemar at DIG Jazz reviews Catherine Sikora, Han-earl Park and François Grillot’s Tracks in the dirt (Clockwork Mercury Press 003): I ljudbilden ligger fokus på små, närmast försiktigt skiftande nyanser där det endast undantagsvis förekommer en underliggande puls i musiken. Av de […]

Harmonious Discord (reviews: Anomic Aphasia)

First set of reviews of ‘Anomic Aphasia’ (SLAMCD 559) with Han-earl Park, Catherine Sikora, Nick Didkovsky and Josh Sinton.

My hat goes off to Bandcamp. For those of us watching, reading, anticipating, and, in many cases, worrying about the implications of the new EU law on VAT and electronic services (see: Steve Lawson’s excellent account of the drama), this item from The Bandcamp Blog came as a relief (to put it mildly): If you’ve […]

excerpt: Han-earl Park, Dominic Lash and Mark Sanders at Fizzle, Birmingham

In anticipation of the performance tonight (October 30) with Dominic Lash and Mark Sanders, I’ve uploaded a short clip from our October 28 performance at Fizzle, Birmingham. Taken from the last few minutes of our first improvisation, I think the breadth of landscape the ensemble covers in that short time is impressive. [More about this […]
