Crothers, Connie Bisio, Michael – “Session At 475 Kent” – [Mutablemusic]
The first 2 minutes Michael Bisio’s solo bass on track 1 is fingernails on chalkboard intense, but hang in there – Connie Crothers’ piano enters and shows us exactly what is required. 4 tracks of improvisation were beautifully recorded (I especially like the clicks and slaps from the bass strings) at Crothers’ loft so that they could have the experience of hearing their work. Hard to categorize, probably more towards contemporary classical than jazz. Difficult, but worth it; perhaps track 2 is the most accessible.
