Frank’s Easy Chair: an eerie and hypnotizing new release from multi-faceted composer and multi-instrumentalist Ethan T. Parcell. Entirely culled from various recordings of Frank Sinatra singing a single line from “It Never Entered My Mind” – “uneasy in my easy chair”. A spiritual sequel to 2018’s Judy Garland Religious Experience, Parcell shows a keen posture toward dismantling and reflecting on American pop culture demigods, and creating a psychedelic and obsessive piece of tape-music out of crumbs of material.
My Little Pet Hen (Eight Clarinet Solos): a bold and fascinating release from multi-faceted composer and multi-instrumentalist Ethan T. Parcell. Energetic and forceful improvisations mixed in with wobbly balladry, and folksy hypnotic meditations on Bb and G clarinet. Parcell shows a unique patience and conception of solo reed playing, equal parts nakedly old-fashioned and daringly inventive.
