Few recordings have left a bigger impression this year than Cecilia Lopez’s incredible RED(DB). This adaptation of her piece, Red, for drums and bass is monumental in more ways than one. Beyond its physical size and scope, the performance itself is something from another world. Lopez’s ability to bring a seemingly endless number of disparate threads together cohesively and engagingly is impressive.
Further, she’s worked with a host of other excellent artists. A new duo album with Joe Moffett is coming this week via Tripticks Tapes. Recent live collaborations with the likes of gabby fluke-mogul and Ingrid Laubrock, among others, show that her practice and approach have considerable range. Lopez has already done so much yet it still feels as though she’s just scratching the surface of what is possible.
