Avant-garde super-group Haitian Rail released Solarists, their second full-length album, on New Atlantis Reocrds.
Solarists brashly charts the common spaces between creative noise rock and the jazz avant-garde, while shattering the restrictive barriers between them.
Formerly dubbed Ricart/Millevoi Quartet, the new lineup features:
Ars Nova Workshop, in partnership with the Archer Spade Performance Series presented the record release show for Perilous Architecture: Dan Blacksberg Trio’s latest brain child.
Dan Blacksberg, Trombone
Matt Engle, Bass
Mike Szekely, Drums
In the Dan Blacksberg Trio, the innovative and genre-defying trombonist brings an expansive and creative new vision to the cutting-edge jazz traditions of pioneers like Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, and Albert Ayler.
Blacksberg has penned a set of music that pushes at the technical and timbral limits of his instrument, opening up into far-reaching sounds worlds while maintaining a melodic rootsiness.
Backed up by the powerful rhythm of Matt Engle (Shot X Shot) on bass, and Mike Szekely (Anthony Braxton Quartet) on drums, the Trio creates a driving mixture of noise, chromatic lyricism, and everything in between…
Perilous Architecture is available in Vinyl through No Business Records.
Or digitally through Blacksberg’s Bandcamp page.
