Los Angeles based Cryptogramophone has released two new titles.
Erik Friedlander “Quake”
“The new CD by the incredible NY ‘cellist is his most exciting and beautiful yet. Featuring Andy Laster on saxophones, Stomu Takeishi on bass and Satoshi Takeishi on percussion, this CD has many fine Friedlander compositions, taking you on an exciting journey from the popular music of India to the Downtown scene.”
Scot Ray Quintet
“The CD combines extreme Jazz, avant funk, liquid Americana and skronk blues. Think-James Brown meets Sun Ra on a front porch somewhere in rural Montana. Scot Ray (trombone), Nels Cline (e. guitars), Alex Cline (drums), Steuart Liebig (contrabassguitars) and Jeff Gauthier (electric violin).”
