Trumpeter Jaimie Branch Profiled and Reviewed

Source: Chicago Reader.

Trumpeter Jaimie Branch was raised in Wilmette and moved to Chicago in summer 2001, just before moving to Boston to attend the New England Conservatory of Music—but she didn’t make her debut on the jazz scene here till she took a semester off after her third year to recover from a gallbladder issue. The 21-year-old spent the last half of 2004 in Chicago, and in short order she established herself as a force to be reckoned with, her knowledge and chops impressing musicians many years her senior.

Check out our review of Branch’s new release, Fly or Die.

Georges Aperghis in LA Reviewed

Source: LA Times.

Until this week, Georges Aperghis was a Greek composer never on Monday. At least never on the Monday Evening Concerts, which devoted its last concert of the season to him. Born in Athens in 1945 and living in France since 1963, Aperghis has all the qualities of an aging European avant-gardist increasingly irrelevant to a fashionable world in which people dance to a backbeat, demand that movies have plots and base businesses on the proposition that cellphones have reduced attention spans to something that would embarrass a goldfish. Aperghis, on the other hand, writes convoluted, incomprehensible music. He talks of questioning meaning and of twisted tracks. “Stories emerge,” is how his official biography describes his non-narrative music, “but are suddenly refuted.”

Klaus Schulze’s Mirage at 40

Mirage (Klaus Schulze album)

Source: Echoes.

In April of 1977, Schulze released Mirage, his eighth album in five years and while it had a more subdued energy and none of the driving sequencers of his previous work, Body Love and Moondawn, it does call back to his first two albums, Irrlicht and Cyborg, which were more inspired by Ligeti drones and string-like textures than trance rhythms. On Irrlicht he even had an orchestra that he recorded with one microphone on a cassette. Schulze himself just played an electric organ on Irrlicht and added a synthesizer for Cyborg.

Henry Threadgill Interview

Source: The Austin Chronicle.

Henry Threadgill makes an ultra-rare Austin appearance this weekend. The Chicago-born, New York City-stationed composer, flutist, and sax player appears at UT’s Music Recital Hall on Friday for a workshop and Q&A, then performs with his ensemble Zooid, Saturday at the Scottish Rite Theater. Via a Monday morning phone call, the recent Pulitzer Prize of Music winner spoke extensively of the life of an artist and creative longevity.
