Newsbits: Dolphy / Utech Records / Tangled Bell in Orlando

Pitchfork reviews the new Eric Dolphy boxed set.

Happy 15th anniversary to Utech Records. The label is a small DIY operation with over 170 releases.

Tangled Bell, a large improv ensemble, will appear in Orlando, Florida on February 2. “The main goal of this exploration is to juxtapose seemingly conflicting concepts and approaches, and display them in an aligning way; to show how antagonistic forces and unfamiliarity can create a cooperative friction and become formidable allies. The intent being that all portions of the whole (notated music, text, improvisation) were at once independent of and mutually dependent upon each other; symbiotic; each being a part and apart simultaneously.”
