Ras Moshe Ensemble in Syracuse

From New Thing Productions:

Thank you to everyone that came to the show last night, as usual, Thinguma*jigSaw put on such a nice intimate show that again made me think about picking up the saw as a musical instrument.

So hot on the feet of this last gig, here is another one for you. Free jazz for your head. Come on out and support live music.

May 30th @ 8pm
Ras Moshe Ensemble featuring Matt Lavelle, David Miller, Tor Yochai Snyder, Shayna Dulberger

Ras Moshe has been playing in various groups throughout New York City for almost twenty years, with William Hooker, Sabir Mateen, Steve Swell, Marc Edwards and others. His style has been compared to post-1965 John Coltrane and Frank Wright, among others. Born and raised in New York, and with a family history rich in the jazz tradition, Ras has uniquely positioned himself to bring the lineage of free jazz into the present day.

Musique Machine Reviews

From Musique Machine:

Borbetomagus – Snuff Jazz
Snuff Jazz is another unforgiving, deeply searing and caustic slice of noise/ jazz attack from the inventors and masters of the form Borbetomagus. The disk finds them making some of their most grating, punishing and sonic acid tinged work yet; that’s head boil yet wonderful invigorating too.

John Wiese & C.Spencer Yeh – Cincinnati
Cincinnati finds Wiese & Spencer conjuring up a collection of bizarre, jarring and strange sonic pictures that sit somewhere between improv, noise, freak show junk yard percussiveness & off-centre atmospherics. Quite often the album feels like a soundtrack to a very odd and deranged cartoon or Dali type world were the laws of sanity and logic don’t seem to exist- at times it’s nightmarish and at others sadistically comic .
