Guthrie's fearless music is the fruit of a long-standing interrogation of a dark place where most players fear to tread: bullfighting with the musical unconscious. Cycles of intermeshed timbral / rhythmic relationships, playing to an internal logic, transcend the usual thought patterns. Far from slipping into mindless, episodic free improv meandering, extended formal shapes tuned by experiential instinct give Sticks, Stones & Breaking Bones its structural integrity. Irregularities are elegantly placed, the raw technique blunted and honed into a resilient break-dance between the spontaneous and pre-conceived. LP includes free digital download; screen-printed LP jacket, edition of 500. CD edition of 1000.
