Lean Left Last Night

It's loud. And short.

The Ex guitars meet the Ken Vandermark & Paal Nilssen-Love Duo
Paal Nilssen-Love er et kjent og kjært navn for alle med hang til frijazz. Verdens største jazznettsted "All About Jazz" har uttalt: "He has taken the drums to new creative levels". Ken Vandermark framstår ofte som en kraftfull og energisk saksofonist, men eksponerer også mer neddempede og lyriske sider. The Ex er et underlig band som det er vanskelig å sette navn på, noen har prøvd med anarcho-punk og punk-rock. Gitaristene fra The Ex: Terrie Ex og Andy Moor bidrar til voldsom, tøff og energisk musikk, fredag 9. juli kl 22.00 på Det Lille Extra

Steve Noble

One day in the late 80s or early 90s, I was woken by a familiar Southern voice and an unfamiliar English voice, while in the small guestroom/storage-space at a friend's apartment on E. 13th Street in NY. The voices belonged to Davey Williams, the great guitarist from Alabama, and Steve Noble from England. I got up, said Good Morning, and I think I babbled something nonsensical to Noble about how impressed I was with the sound of his bass drum at the gig I had seen him at the night before (don't remember who else was playing...). That may have been the same trip where I was leaving the apartment and the NYPD grabbed me, threw me down on the floor, and put a gun to my head, etc. (Upon further reflection, I think I was on my way out to see Noble play with Ernst Reijseger at the old Knitting Factory when New York's Finest decided that I was a Public Enemy...)

Steve Noble Quartet @ the Vortex, London, 05/19/10.

At this point I would like to comment on the unit on Jason Yarde's scalp; it looks like a brilliant synthesis of the singer from Stump, and Sonny Rollins when he sported a mohawk...

Further research reveals that Noble and Williams recorded two albums with the tuba player Oren Marshall...

The Suzuki Method

is pretty similar to the Chuck Berry method; Damo Suzuki comes to a town, and the promoter has a band of local musicians set to back him up...except he's not doing Chuck Berry songs (or songs by Can, for that matter), he's doing all improvisations.
Here are clips of some recent performances:

The dark circles on the wall are paintings done on 12" vinyl records (Bela Dubby is a cafe and gallery; it also serves beer). My favorite non-musical part of their set was during one of the segments where the saxes drop out and the guitar and drums duet. Darius Jones stood over by one of the walls in front of one of the record paintings, and it looked like he had a black halo...

Opening were the duo of Dan Wenninger on tenor sax and Nate Scheible on drums:

Rounding out the show was Mike Forbes (also of Tiger Hatchery and the Forbes/Young/Walter trio) on tenor and J. Guy Laughlin on drums:
