Since I really haven’t picked up an abundance of new things lately I haven’t been posting about them. But I did get some cool things including some new (or newer) releases.
Here is a random selection of a few of them including the much anticipated debut LP from Pittsburgh jazz ensemble, Flexure, called Insert Title Here, which features a custom collage artwork by band leader Ben Opie. This was recorded during a week long residency in January at The New Hazlett Theater in Pittsburgh that culminated in a performance open to the public which I was fortunate enough to attend. This release is HIGHLY recommended. BUY IT HERE!
I also bought New Myth/Old Science by Living By Lanterns. I won’t go into great detail on this, so just follow the link. It’s a project led by Chicago based musicians Mike Reed and Jason Adasiewicz, where the goal was to create music based on a few fragments from some unreleased Sun Ra rehearsal tape. The results are pretty amazing. I highly recommend checking it out (as well as any other project featuring Reed or Adasiewicz for that matter).
