Wood / Metal / Plastic / Pattern / Rhythm / Rock
(Thin Wrist - TW-J) LP $19.00 (Out-of-stock)
Wooden Bag (Other Music 2015) was all forward momentum, stomping and shaking, but Wood / Metal / Plastic / Pattern / Rhythm / Rock explores percussionist Rick Brown’s long-standing interest in odd and “compound” meters, enhanced by guitarist Che Chen’s modal investigations and melodic / harmonic tendencies. Reinforcements include Cheryl Kingan of The Scene Is Now on baritone and alto saxes; Andrew Lafkas of Todd Capp’s Mystery Train on contrabass; Karen Waltuch of Zeke & Karen on viola; Rolyn Hu of True Primes on trumpet; and Carey Balch of Knoxville’s Give Thanks on floor tom. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2016.
