I love these guys! I am so happy that they also like to perform in Moscow and we have the opportunity to hear them live))
This is a many-sided album, not only free-jazz, not only jazzcore, but also modern jazz, free improvisation and experimental music. So expressive, energetic, and musical album!
It is important to add that this Web-release contains 4 bonus tracks (solo improvisations of all musicians & 'Round About Lapa') that makes the album to be more than just the best album of the year )) Olga Kivius

The guitarists first solo album (like the actors first Hamlet) is a hoop that eventually has to be jumped through...and Mary Halvorson has finally risen to the challenge...a truly brilliant improviser and technician (I remember being knocked out by a performance she gave with Anthony Braxton in London),she has added layers of emotional and spiritual patina to those skills...the pre-release track here demonstrates all those qualities in spades...I see this release will include work by Noel Akchote (whose music plays a key part in my listening regime)...
So,until its release "I eat the air,promise crammed"...
Update! This album is now released and I can "count myself King of infinite riches"...this release catapults Mary Halvorson into a different league for me...wonderful,wonderful,wonderful! John Cratchley
