THE CAVE IMPROVISATIONS PROJECT
LARRY OCHS – GERALD CLEAVER
 
On October 1 and 2, 2016, Larry Ochs and Gerald Cleaver will take the opportunity together to record and perform in the Toulouse region of France in one privately owned cave as well as in the public cave called Grotte du Mas d'Azil
During the Paleolithic period humans expressed their artistic potential on rock walls in caves. The cave paintings were spiritual and aesthetic “expressions”. It remains true, many millennia later, that humans or their artist-representatives are inspired by natural immensity and trans-historical continua. The CAVE IMPROVISATIONS PROJECT seeks to add contemporary musical responses to the repository of inspiration that France’s ancient caves hold within them.
One privately owned cave lies in the Pyrenees Mountains of southwest France; it is not open to the public. Enthusiastic local producers from Toulouse have secured permission for the musicians to enter this private cave with their instruments; the group must be small, only 7 or 8 people are permitted in this cave at any one time.
This exceptional encounter with our first ancestors in their acoustically unique "living room" will be recorded for a future release on «ROGUEART».
As accomplished improvisers of “real-time” music, Larry Ochs and Gerald Cleaver, who both have played in a range of venues where spatial and sonic considerations factored into the music, are well-suited to do something brilliant with this rare opportunity. The CAVE IMPROVISATIONS PROJECT will be the only time this connection of past and present inspirations can happen. Ochs and Cleaver will be ready to mix it up with whatever artistic spirit and spirits remain.

« 12/02/2015 : Matthew Shipp Trio "To Duke" »

MATTHEW SHIPP TRIO
TO DUKE

...Perhaps the better way to step into the river that is Shipp's music is to listen to him playing standards. It is a listening approach that works with other artists, like Thelonious Monk playing "Just A Gigolo" or Anthony Braxton's Charlie Parker Project. Shipp's tribute to the music of Duke Ellington is a fine introduction to the pianist's vocabulary….
...What you can gather here is that Shipp is a connoisseur of melody. The trio suggests that if you want to listen to Duke, then buy Ellington records. But if you want to magnify the experience, then try some new music.

Marc Corroto - All About Jazz - ✸✸✸✸✸

...So, at the end of the day, after five listens, I must say this one is a kind of masterpiece. It's one of my favorite Shipp Trio albums. You need a little time to grow into it, or I did (always do) and then it stays with you after the music stops. It's that kind of experience. If you don't know Maestro Shipp's way, and there may be some out there who don't, this is a great place to start. It's a great place to BE, regardless. Get it!
Grego Applegate Edwards - GappleGate Music Review

...Truth be told, there’s a subversive current that runs throughout all of To Duke that rebels a bit against the elegance of these Duke Ellington strains, but that elegance always wins out. Still, the battles between two these sides cleverly set up by the Matthew Shipp Trio is where all of the allure and artistry of To Duke lie.

« 14/12/2009 : What is Jazz? Spanish police knows! »

Monday December 7th 2009, Siguenza Jazz Festival, Spain; LARRY OCHS SAX & DRUMMING CORE European tour last gig: a spectator called the police because he considered the music was not "jazz"; incredibly, the complaint was duly registered and will be passed on to a judge!
William Parker's statement immediately comes in mind: "How dare we spend so much valuable energy answering such questions as "What is Jazz"".
Whatever the label we put on the music, we are very pleased and proud to have released recently the latest and great LARRY OCHS SAX & DRUMMING CORE's album STONE SHIFT
