Fadnes, Pearson, and Hession: not household names but, based on this release, definitely worthy of being so.
All three come out of the Leeds music scene in England. This recording is the result of many many hours of rehearsals and gigs. Free music that works off compositions and develops in natural, organic power trips. Clearly this is a trio familiar and trusting of its colleagues. There is a solid soul to this music, wonderful development, and clear respect for the listener.

If You Should GoTomas Ulrich (Primary), Rolf Sturm (Guitar), Michael Bisio (Bass)Welcome to the debut of Tomas Ulrich's Cargo Cult. This recording so impressed the folks at CIMP Records that they immediately contracted for three recordings on that label. Hard to describe this group as it comfortably draws from a broad pallet, not just from the Jazz/improvised music genre but from the so-called Classical, Pop, and Rock genres. On this live date you'll get Cargo Cult in the raw ... Ride Of Your LifeGeorge Dulin Disband (Primary), Danny Zanker (Bass), Take Toriyama (Drums), Jordan Perlson (Drums), George Dulin (Piano)This is George Dulin’s first release and what a wondrous debut. Cadence Jazz suspects he may be a new stylist—but with only one release it’s hard to tell. What is certain: he is assured and mature in his original workings based, basically, on some great old standards.
For those who think inside can no longer challenge direction and performance, this will test that assumption. The liners say he’s “an alchemy of Bud Powell and Don Pullen” while George Garzone calls him unique. We just call it wonderful listening. StringsSalim Washington (Primary), Alva Anderson (Saxophone), Charlie Burnham (Viola), Henry Cook (Flute), Akua Dixon (Cello), Melanie Dyer (Viola), Rosi Hertlein (Violin), Clarissa Howell (Cello), Hakim Jami (Bass), Howard Johnson (Clarinet), Mark Johnson (Drums), Jaribu Shahid (Bass)Here is an ambitious effort by all concerned, a unique gathering and scoring of some very heartfelt music. The result is uplifting spirit music to both dance to and ponder. This is a celebratory event and will appeal to a broad range of Jazz and "non-Jazz" ... Partners in CrimeMat Marucci (Primary), Doug Webb (Saxophone), Joe Dolister (Bass)This Marucci-Webb collaboration predates the remarkable CIMP recordings by this well matched team (CIMPs 346 and 356). This trio recording‚Äîmade live in 2004 in Sacramento, California‚Äîis a nice combination of originals and standards. Those familiar with their previous releases will immediately recognize the style of this one's accessible inventiveness. If this is a crime, it sure is a ... My Fingers Will Be Your TearsAndrew Drury (Primary), Briggan Krauss (Saxophone), Myra Melford (Piano)Andrew Drury, as evidenced on this fine recording, is obviously a drummer with both a secure rhythmic sense and the ability to mess with metronomic time (yet still hold the flow of the music). Andrew brings together Myra Melford's directional piano and Briggan Krauss' distinctive sax approach/sound to form a power trio that fearlessly throws itself into edgy compositions and constructions. ... FlowKyle Aho (Primary), Jeremy Allen (Bass), Richie Barshay (Drums)Kyle Aho is a pianist worth listening to. A quirky mainstreamer, he utilizes the mainstream-based technique and impregnates it with odd twists and turns. Respected in the music community, Kyle's earlier work (CadenceJazz 1182, CadenceJazz 1204) is almost exclusively in the company of Joel Press, and both Cadence Jazz releases have been singled out for the pianistic work. Something fresh for the ... Untying the StandardJoel Press (Primary), Kyle Aho (Piano)Counterpoint and harmony are in nice relief on this duo recording. In the past, veteran Joel Press' recordings have garnered serious critical praise. Not one who records frequently, any release by Press is an occasion of note. Here he is joined once again by Kyle Aho's most inventive piano on a program that offers a fresh approach, primarily to standards. Stylistically there are elements from ... Trio X: Roulette at Location OneTrio X (Primary), Joe McPhee (Soprano Saxophone), Jay Rosen (Drums), Dominic Duval (Bass)Trio X first worked together as part of a 1998 CIMPhonia (CIMP 175 and 178) gathering with Paul Smoker, Mark Whitecage, David Prentice, and Peter Kowald from which they carved out their group, Trio X, and made their first recording (The Watermelon Suite, CIMP 183).
Roulette at Location One is their eighth recording and the latest release.
This session is a beautiful representation of Trio X's brilliant use of theme developoment, emotional impact, and thoughtful musicality. It's a hell of a ride. PandemoniumBarry Wallenstien (Primary), John Hicks (Piano), Curtis Lundy (Bass), Vincent Chancey (French Horn), Daniel Carter (Saxophone), Serge Pesce (Guitar), Barry Wallenstein (Vocals)Barry Wallenstein is both a poet (he wrote the text on these fifteen cuts), a voice (his is the distinctive and warm voice heard here), and a player (dig how his texts, delivery, and coloring integrate within the septet). This is the second issue on Cadence Jazz Records for this much-honored poet whose other recorded collaborations over the past 30 years have included Stanley Cowell, Charles Tyler, and Arthur Blythe. Barry's poetry speaks warmly of hard things and over the course of the program conveys a range of emotions, all very human, all very believable. A 20-page booklet with full text accompanies this exceptional work. Easily accessible to both those who appreciate unhackneyed prose and poetry as well as those who appreciate uncompromised improvised music. Live at KaldisRon Enyard (Primary), Paula Owen (Vocals), Cal Collins (Guitar), Ed Felson (Bass)This is only Paula Owen's fourth release and once again she is in the presence of Indy Jazz guru/mentor, Ron Enyard. An historical date from 1995, it features the late guitarist, Cal Collins; Ed Felson on bass completes the quartet. Fans of great Jazz singers know Paula and treasure the few recordings she has made. Any new Paula Owen release is an event to be enjoyed. This is an unexpected ... We're Comin' Just One TimeThe Gauci Trio (Primary), Stephen Gauci (Tenor Saxophone), Terence Murren (Bass), Jeremy Carlstedt (Drums)Stephen Gauci took years to develop into the formed and distinct tenor saxist he is. After years of no documentation, Stephen has come on strong in 2004/05. This work falls chronologically between his first Cadence Jazz release (#1180 - Long Night Waiting) and his recent CIMP date (#326 - First, Keep Quiet). Both recordings have received notable critical acclaim as well as attention from other improvising musicians.
To say that we have received calls from musicians almost demanding to know if "he's as good as or different as it seems" would not be an exaggeration. On this CD Stephen investigates the relationship between freedom and form. In The Stillhouse (Live)The Slam Trio (Primary), Blaise Siwula (Saxophone), Adam Lane (Bass), Toshi Makihara (Drums)Recorded live at Portland, Maine's, Stillhouse, this captures, at the top of their form, three demanding improvisers who make up a dynamic trio uncompromisingly caught in three extended improvisations. The last show of the last night of the last day of a 3-day gig, this blow-out doesn't just add to the discography of the trio, it extended it in real and notable ways. Motion EjectaMilo Fine (Primary), Mick Beck (Tenor Saxophone), Paul Hession (Drums)Milo's latest and we think most exciting release to date. Here, this veteran Free Jazzer is joined by Mick Beck and Paul Hession in a ¬†never before/never again canvas of purposeful color and rhythm, all of which will challenge and satisfy that grey area between your ears. Live. Shadow Intersections WestPaul Murphy (Primary), Marco Eneidi (Alto Saxophone), Kash Killion (Cello), Paul Murphey (Drums)After 30 years it seems as though listeners are catching up to Paul Murphy, '70s avant-gardist/2000's musical artist. This is Paul's second Cadence date with Kash Killion (CJR 1147), without question one of the most electrifying Jazz/improvising cellists on the scene. Joining Paul & Kash is Paul's old associate, Marco Eneidi. Pithy, plucky, and rhythmic, this is improvisation of a close knit for careful listening. Sweet DreamsAmanda Pucci Jhones (Primary), Kenny Barron (Primary), Hilliard Greene (Primary), Dwayne "Cook" Braodnax (Primary), Casey Benjamin (Primary), Karl Martin Almquist (Primary), Morten Faerestrand (Primary), Kenyatta Beasley (Primary)Cadence and CIMP don’t record vocalists often, but, when we do, you can bet they are distinctive. This was Pucci Amanda Jhones’ first recording and directly led to a CIMP session (#170). It’s a remarkably strong and distinctive debut. Tonal AdventuresAlvaro Is Rojas (Primary)Alvaro’s earlier Cadence Jazz recording was Searching For Harmony, this one is Tonal Adventures and both are rather suggestive of this lovely pianist’s personal style. Mixed in with the standards are Mr. Rojas’ own compositions which easily complement the tone and texture of the whole.
CollectionBill Dixon (Primary)This reissues (sans the graphics and artist notes) the original limited boxed LP set. Less rare and elaborate than the vinyl, it’s still the same great Bill Dixon music and at a special double CD price.
