Playlist, week of 2017-05-14

Image result for bynum plustet

I'm loving Taylor Ho Bynum's large-scale works... Enter the Plustet takes a different approach than 2014's Navigation... it's both tighter and more expansive at the same time... I somehow missed out on Heldon and Richard Pinhas all through the 20th century, so thanks to Rodger I've been playing catch-up... great stuff (again with the incisive criticism!)... Working my way through some Ingrid Laubrock/Tom Rainey duets I got off of youtube... and what pleasurable work it is! They play really well together and beautifully extend the legacy of Interstellar Space... it's hard for me to watch the videos, though, because I don't want to be influenced by Rainey... he's just so damn good, and watching him I just want to emulate everything he does... I couldn't pull it off but I'd make a fool of myself trying.. The live Drew Gress Quintet music is an excellent showcase for Tom Rainey's "jazzy" side... he really swings hard here, and his drumming is impeccable... The Nels Cline/Larry Ochs/Gerald Cleaver Trio + Marshall Allen set in Philly: sublime hardcore free improvisation... I saw this trio in Richmond and they were again sublime... here, Marshall Allen fits like a glove... life-affirming energy!...
