frightening atmospherics (New York City Jazz Record review: Anomic Aphasia)

“Plucky heroine faced with rebellious robots”? “ingot-like density”? “human triumph”? “electronically plugged in as well as pointedly blended”? Ken Waxman, writing in The New York City Jazz Record, reviews ‘Anomic Aphasia’ (SLAMCD 559) by Han-earl Park, Catherine Sikora, Nick Didkovsky and Josh Sinton: Guitarist Han-earl Park joins those improvisers who conceive of a playbook for […]
