Album Review

Kaiser, Jeff/Aplanalp, Woody – “Asphalt Buddhas ” – [Pfmentum]

Thurston Hunger   9/4/2005   CD, Jazz

Venturan venturer Kaiser with the third
release on the label/newsletter that
he runs. Trumpet (and other horns) get
muted and mutated, acoustically and
w/ electronics. Nice gritty distortion,
rooms of reverb, spit-drenching valve
action, sampled trumpet ala Spacehead
Andy Diagram and samples ala C.W. McCall
(CB radio ghosts). A heady mix. Very
scruffy horn and scrubby guitar…but
then there are moments of lucid playing
amidst the chaos. Pretty cool noise-jazz
experimental adventura electric Miles
on a Martian probe.
