Enclosure : Fifth of 3 [pyr069]

“nearly five years in the making, fifth of 3 completes a three album, two ep serial quasi-concept album sequence that began with [ROOM]’s spaces. the change in moniker is intended to usher in the change from the possibilities and travails on spaces to the constraints and traps in fifth of 3. the brackets around Room were to foreshadow the evolution while offering an ironic play on the word – space in one sense but closed space of a building in another.

Ada Rave Cuarteto : La Continuidad [pyr042]

la continuidad, the first album from the ada rave cuarteto! the group is a fury of sound. intensely focused free improvisations give rise to pre-conceived compositions that allow the quartet to stretch out. they pay tribute to their inspirations – monk, braxton, ornette and dolphy – but, from that starting point, they set off in their own direction. lots of space, lots of listening to each other. quiet studies in the limits of their instruments. swing pulse rhythms on post modern be-bop. a genuine sound of joy.”
