From Gold Lion Arts:
Gold Lion Arts is releasing three new cassettes this month, all of which were recorded live.
Vinny Golia-Solo at Gold Lion Arts
LA windmaster Vinny Golia plays a variety of reeds, singing bowls, flutes and more in this wonderful recording. The solo set is a continuous piece, divided over two sides. It’s very high energy and showcases a master at work.
Amy Reed-Solo Guitar
Amy Reed’s continued growth and development as an improviser is apparent on this micro-release. Her electric guitar set, recorded in the summer of 2014 is flowing with beautiful, aggressive sounds with a nice arc going into Side B.
Ross Hammond and Catherine Sikora-Perfect Plasticity
This duo cassette release is the first recording made at Gold Lion Arts. It features Sacramento guitarist Hammond with frequent collaborator Catherine Sikora on Tenor Saxophone. Sikora, who hails from Ireland by way of New York is playing with a fire and the two get into some killer duo improvisations. Hammond is on electric and acoustic guitars and each piece finds the two weaving lines and textures into a cacophony of sound.
