The ending tracks involve what sounds like a combination of drum kit instruments and found-object percussion processed through a white-noise filter of varying intensity.

While the album is an all-out assault with relentless heaviness, it is not dark nor is it unpleasant. With a lineup consisting of two guitarists, two drummers, and a bassist, Bisbâyé’s modus operandi includes interlocking polyrhythms, frequent time changes, and dense riffing.

The first pianists who engaged in the avant garde jazz movement of the 1960s faced an overwhelming situation tied to two foundational figures of the music. During the music’s first decade, there were few pianists who found a space to develop an original voice between these two poles. RIP Bobby Few  January 14, 2021January 13, […]
