New Releases from Engine Studios

Engine Studios has several new releases out. Although their site has not been updated yet, a review indicates that:

Tom Abbs and Frequency Response play some very interesting improvised free jazz on Lost & Found (ENGINE 031), working to elaborate musical structures devised and composed by Abbs. The combination of instruments (tuba, cello, sax, violin) produces gorgeous and haunting harmonies, and Chad Taylor’s drumming is superlative on these sessions. Tenor player Fred Anderson leads a trio on Staying In The Game (ENGINE 029), recorded in Chicago last year, and his music is enjoyable enough but not especially “out” or innovative as jazz, and could have been recorded 35 years ago. Lastly we have Warren Smith and The Composer’s Workshop Ensemble, whose CD Old News Borrowed Blues (ENGINE 027) displays an eclectic mix of compositional styles and world music rhythms played by a large brass ensemble supplemented with African drumming.

John Hébert’s Debut CD Reviewed

From Improvised Communications:

Richard Kamins reviewed bassist/composer John Hébert’s forthcoming debut, Byzantine Monkey (Firehouse 12 Records), this past week in his Hartford Courant blog, See! Hear!

The disc, which features Hébert’s band of the same name featuring Michaël Attias (alto and baritone saxophones), Tony Malaby (tenor and soprano saxophones), Adam Kolker (flutes and bass clarinet), Nasheet Waits (drums) and Satoshi Takeishi (percussion), officially hits the streets on June 16th.
