Another installment of Konkurrent's fantastic series which invites bands to record while touring Holland, giving 2 days to record 20-30 min of whatever they want. In June 2001 SY played the Holland Festival. For their studio time they invited the Dutch ICP-jazzers HAN BEENICK, AB BEARS & WOLTER WIERBOS, plus LUC & TERRIE of THE legendary EX! In one day they recorded these delicate, abstract & elusive miniatures that fit in the jazz tradition rather than pop music, based on sounds, instant composing & fantasy, as if the music went out on a stroll without a specific direction, open for surprises & unexpected turns. Toss in JIM O'ROURKE on the recording & you've got yourself an exciting autumn treasure!
Top Customer Reviews
There's a definite jazz feeling about this recording, and it's due to more than just the presence of two ICP Orchestra horn players and ICP drummer Hans Bennink's guiding hand. The whole thing was recorded in just one day, and as there aren't any 'tunes' we can safely imagine that everything presented here is a first take: the things that didn't turn out as well just didn't make it onto the record. This means that the emphasis is on the interplay between the musicians, who let us listen in as each number develops from the grain of an idea into a complete whole.
Of course, there are people (probably lots) who will say that they don't pay to hear development, and that anyways all this just sounds like noise. In reality, though, the tracks on this album are far from homogeneous. I won't say they 'repay careful listening,' because that would just mean they don't sound good from the start: what they do repay is listening for more than one superficial second and then saying 'I don't get it.Read more ›
