Cory Smythe Interview

TCO interviews Cory Smythe, who has a new album out that streams for free.

Lauded by his peers (Jason Moran, Vijay Iyer, Steve Lehman) as well as critics (Steve Smith), TCO member Cory Smythe is an accomplished pianist, an inventive improviser and composer, a sought-after chamber musician and a pioneering performer of contemporary classical music. Smythe’s debut recording, (“Pluripotent”) released on March 14, 2011, is a concise flow of newly composed and improvised music for solo piano, with occasional voice and electronics (also supplied by Smythe). Its originality, poetry, and virtuosity have earned it underground, online recognition among forward-looking jazz and classical musicians in New York City and beyond.

Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet in London

Peter Brötzmann


Peter Brötzmann, the forceful free jazz expressionist, has regularly played in the UK since releasing his first album in 1967 but only once before with his freewheeling Chicago Tentet. This gig, a London first, put the German multi-instrumentalist’s emotional range and organisational skills under the microscope of a three-day residency. Each night, he divided his ensemble into its constituent elements before reconvening the whole for an improvised finale.
