The Wire: Han-earl Park with Paul Dunmall and Mark Sanders, with Gargantius Effect, with Franziska Schroeder, and with Catherine Sikora and Ian Smith

I don’t expect my approach to real-time, interactive play and improvisative noise overlaps much with Richard Pinnell’s tastes, but Pinnell takes time to write a short overview of some of my download releases in the July issue of The Wire: Four ‘name your price’ downloads from… guitarist Han-earl Park in various improv formations situated at […]

Download of the Day at All About Jazz: Catherine Sikora, Ian Smith and Han-earl Park (Cork, 04–04–11)

A live recording from ‘Saturday The Fringes’ mainstay Han-earl Park. This is quality improv jazz, the kind I often feature on ‘Saturday The Fringes,’ but something about this album, I dunno, just seemed to have crossover appeal. Plus, I’m addicted to the album. So, we’re giving it a weekday slot on the download schedule. The […]

I think, without exception, there has not yet been an opening to any one of his compositions where […]
