[Music] John Zorn’s ‘Naked City’ Reviewed for 30 Year Anniversary — Avant Music News

Source: Treblezine. Naked City is free jazz, at least some of the time. Free jazz didn’t just expand on the premise of jazz, it blew it to pieces, usually with the power of a lot of breath blown into a tiny reed. The free jazz Naked City is most indebted to is Albert Ayler, who […]

[Music] Rob Mazurek Octet – Skull Sessions

Rob Mazurek is a cornetist, composer and sound explorer out of Chicago who has collaborated with some of the best groups and instrumentalists in the world of experimental music.  He has collaborated with Jim O’Rourke, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Stereolab, along with fellow Chicagoans Tortoise.

[Video] Foltin and Nikola Kodjabashia – To Whom Do You Belong Now?

Foltin are one of the most innovative groups in the Republic of Macedonia. I’ve always wondered why those into Rock-In-Opposition music didn’t gravitate to their quirky music much sooner. Nikola Kodjabashia is a Macedonian pianist currently based in the United Kingdom who works primarily composing avant-garde music. How this pairing could produce such sumptuous, smoky trip-hop not out-of-place in any New York jazz bar is beyond me. Well worth seeking out!
