Album Review

Son of Gunnar, Ton of Shel – Son of Gunnar, Ton of Shel (Edgetone)

outlier   10/25/2007   A Library

Aram Shelton-sax, bs cl, tr, elec?? and Steine Gunnarson-elec, prepared gtr create stylish electro-saxospheric currents while you daydream about interstellar travel.?? Multilayered, polyphonic existential treatises on what music is or was.?? Playboy once reviewed a dinosaur band with “Jazzman Beware”, well this time around it’s “BEWARE THE JAZZMAN” for they bring the sounds that mark the coming apostasy.?? Edgetone has taken an adventurous path with this and the Ghost in the House releases.?? Shelton and Gunnarson??unleash a stunning complex of sound on unsuspecting listeners and they’ll be quite thankful for the release from the cold??black bars of musical conventions.?? What is discovered here is a useful artifact for expermental efforts in coming times.?? This is Jazz without a safety net, this is experimentalism without boundaries.
