Delightfully diverse live jazz Sound Liberation – RITE THROUGH AN ECLECTIC SPECTRUM: Your ears are not going to BELIEVE what you’re hearing… and if you take my recommendation, you will watch this trailer for this delightfully diverse live jazz set first…
…if you’re a fan of music that reaches out into the “outer reaches”, you’ll NEED to SUBSCRIBE to Gene Pritzker’s YouTube channel, where you’ll find superb live performances and videos… I did it RIGHT away.
When Stravinsky’s unconventional ballet was first performed (1913, in Paris), it caused a riot… of course, when Gene composed his songs to reinterpret it, the music was even “further out”… Gene’s excellent guitar/rap/DJ work is complimented by Chanda Rule – voice; Max Pollak – tap dance/percussion/rap; Franz Hackl – trumpet; Greg Baker – guitar; Philipp Moll – bass; and Gernot Bernroider – drums, and on songs like the 5:42 “Rivals“, they will BLOW your MIND… think Zappa on steroids… the guitar work is just STELLAR on this high-energy performance!
I totally dug the percussion on “Sacrifice“, and when Franz’s horn joins in with Chanda’s scintillating vocal work, the tune takes off into the stratosphere… if you’re an “MOR” (middle-of-the-road) listener, you probably won’t “grok” this, but for true lovers of improvisational music, this is STRONGLY recommended… you won’t hear this on your local “MOR” stations, guaranteed.
I can hear shades of a couple of my favorite bands, Funkadelic and Sly & The Family Stone, in the stunning 6:30 closer, “Dance“… to get the full impact of the performance, you should also WATCH this one…
It was actually one of the shorter tunes, the 4:49 “The Chosen One”, that got my vote for personal favorite of the eight (long) songs offered up for your aural adventure… this will take you to the very “edge”, & unless you have a clear mind, you may not make it back from the wormhole this carries you to & through!
I give Sound Liberation a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99. Get more information at the Composers Concordance page for the album. Rotcod Zzaj
