New Releases from Edgetone Records

From Edgetone:

Estamos Ensemble 2-CD Set
jimpani kustakwa ka jankwariteecherï

“jimpani kustakwa ka jankwariteecherï” translated “compositions and improvisations” in the P’urhépecha language mostly spoken in rural communities in the highlands of Michoacán of Mexico. The Estamos Ensemble represents a stellar cross section of performing musicians and composers from Mexico and the U.S. The intention of Estamos Ensemble is to foster more communication and collaboration between musicians of our two bordering countries as well as a better understanding of and appreciation for the citizens of our countries
in general.

COMPOSERS
Nels Cline (US); Juan Felipe Waller (MX); Pauline Oliveros (US); Joan Jeanrenaud (US); Vinny Golia (US); Jorge Torres Sáenz (MX); William Parker (US); Thollem McDonas (US); Ana Lara (MX)

PERFORMING ARTISTS Theresa Wong – Cello, Voice (US); Emilio Tamez – Percussion (MX); Marko Novachcoff – Various Winds (US); Alexander Bruck – Viola (MX); Ava Mendoza – Guitar (US); Julián Martínez Vázquez – Violin (MX); Vinny Golia – Various Winds (US); Carmina Escobar – Voice, Electronics (MX); Kjell Nordeson – Vibraphone (US/Sweden); Thollem McDonas – Piano, Artistic Director (US)

Rent Romus‘ Lords of Outland w/ Vinny Golia
Edge of Dark

Over a period of the last seven years Romus composed music inspired by Frank Herbert’s epic vision, Phil K. Dick’s rantings and H.P. Lovecraft’s darkest fears. The result is “Edge of Dark” recorded live in San Francisco in the fall of 2010 with his ensemble The Lords of Outland and internationally noted multi-instrumentalist Vinny Golia. As a performer, Golia has presented his music to concert audiences in Europe, Canada, Japan and the United States in ensembles varying dramatically in size and instrumentation. Putting down the paint brushes of a visual artist in 1971, Golia devoted himself full-time to music and has since evolved into one of the world’s most celebrated creative jazz artists. At the forefront of improvised music, he plays twenty different woodwinds, plus various ethnic aerophones.

Tri-Cornered Tent Show
Alien Trailways

Alien Trailways from Tri-Cornered Tent Show continues their journey though sci-fi space jazz psychedelic, world chant, and lo-fi electronics that nods to both a Lovecraftian past and the future of Sun-RA and Philip K. Dick. The Tent Show is joined by the deep soul voice of Toni Pope from San Diego California. She has intensely studied the singing tradition of the Siberian shaman, the Mongolian overtone and undertone-voice; the katajag singing of the Inuit, Indian, and African guttural pressed techniques which require the highest precision and power.

Jess Rowland
The Endless Fall of the Infallible See (and the Future Imagery Architecture)

“Jess Rowland’s The Endless Fall of the Infallible See and The Future Architecture Imagery consists of twelve weird songs about architecture. On this collection, you can hear melodies of architecture future, past, mental and otherwise, inspired by medieval painter Simone Martini’s (c. 1328): Miracle of the Child Falling From the Balcony. The Endless Fall of the Infallible See originally referred to the papal decree against the 14th Century mystic, Meister Eckhart. The Future Imagery Architecture is the name of a failed new generation of US spy satellites. Put all these ideas together and you get a sonic landscape inhabiting spaces, such as rooms, cabinets, vestibules, ateliers, and even a yurt, of so-so things that were, weren’t, and could-be and might not be. In addition to Jess Rowland this collection also features the Soda Machine Band, Pete Stalsky on Drums, and a special appearance by the 8675309’s. Listen carefully, and you too could attain tolerance of the birthlessness of all things.

Thollem Mcdonas and Stefano Scodanibbio
on Debussy’s piano and…

Thollem’s keyboard flights unleash cascades of notes of seemingly impossible velocity and no matter where he goes tonally, it always seems right, fresh and satisfying. He should be on everyone’s listening list who appreciates great piano music. As an improviser, he inhabits a world uniquely his own, rhythmically, harmonically and formally.

John Hollenbeck at Le Poisson Rouge

From NYTimes.com:

John Hollenbeck composes so much music for his own bands — Refuge Trio, the Claudia Quintet and his Large Ensemble, each unmistakable in its identity — that you could go a long time before wondering about the transferable aspects of his style. Presented by Undead Jazz, it was a double bill featuring the John Hollenbeck Large Ensemble and, from France, the 10-piece Orchestre National de Jazz.
