Golia, Vinnie & Kowald, Peter – “Mythology” – [Kadima Collective Recordings]

Cousin Mary   5/24/2010   CD, Jazz

Liner notes tell of Vinnie Golia’s longtime admiration of bassist Peter Kowald, their opportunity to record these tracks together, and then Golia’s desire to release them after Kowald’s death.

By turns fluttering, squawking, groaning like a didgeridoo in these improvisations, Golia plays a wide range of woodwinds that contrasts and nestles nicely against Kowald’s bass. It appears that the terms Pizz (pizzacato: plucking) and Arco (Italian for bow) refer to the technique used for the particular track on the bass.
