Free jazz, in no uncertain terms. I don’t know what it is about Han-Earl’s groups’ sounds. Ten seconds in, I think to myself, “Man, this isn’t my thing.” But by the time the tune is over, I realize that I’m totally into it and enjoying it. If a musician can convert my ears within the span of one tune, in my eyes, that’s a sign of talent.
All About Jazz features ‘shoapnxoe gutair dmurs a.ii’ by Paul Dunmall, Han-earl Park and Mark Sanders as today’s Download of the Day! I’m again happy and honored to have a recording on AAJ’s download selection (previously featured: ‘Carrier’ with Richard Scott and ‘Chorale’ with Franziska Schroeder). Thanks to AAJ downloads editor Dave Sumner for selecting the recording, to Chris Trent for the recording and mastering work, and to Mike Hurley of Fizzle for hosting the performance at which the recording was made.
