CASSIBER – The Way it Was

These are great recordings that paint the best – and most devil-take-the-hindmost – picture of this extraordinary, groundbreaking band. The sound is exemplary and the music constantly thinks around corners.

Hobby Horse January 13 in Madison

From Madison’s Surrounded by Reality Music:

Dan Kinzelman: Sax/Clarinets/Voice/Flutes
Joe Rehmer: Bass/Keyboards/Voice/Percussion
Stefano Tamborrino: Drums/Percussion/Melodica/Voice

Alternating between hypnotic and mysterious vamps and moments of explosive dynamism, the music of Hobby Horse combines elements drawn from free jazz, ambient music, rock and electronic music. The widely varying experiences of the three members enrich a music which evades genre limitations while nonetheless maintaining a strong connection to their jazz roots.
Hobby Horse first performed in 2008 as a traditional sax trio, but their more recent efforts have seen a tendency to explore the sonic limits of the trio by using non-traditional instruments such as tin whistle, recorder, glockenspiel, melodica and choral arrangements. This adds an almost orchestral dimension to the repertoire which places original tunes written for the band alongside tunes by Tom Waits, Robert Wyatt and Thelonius Monk.
