Mixed-Music

For this New Sounds program, listen to “Mixed Music” – a term coined by musician/composer Joseph C. Phillips Jr.  -which is a blend of jazz improvisation and groove-based minimalism or other forms of composed music.  There’s brand-new music from the Brooklyn-based Peter Kerlin Octet, an outfit consisting of two vibraphonists, two bassists, an organist, a drummer, a percussionist, and a violist.  On his record, “Salamander,” bass player/composer Kerlin offers up ambitious bass-driven compositions that weave through post-rock and minimalist territory, with improvisational jazz-like detours along the way. 

The record release party for Peter Kerlin Octet's "Salamander" is Friday, Dec. 6th at Spectrum (121 Ludlow St. NYC, Second Floor; Ring bell for 2) in NYC.

Also, from the Australian trio the Necks, hear portions of their magnificent, intriguing and beautiful release, “Open,” - a 68 minute long work that is ostensibly jazz, yet journeys through ambient territory as it develops.  Then, listen to a work from Canadian sax player/flutist/composer Anna Webber, where systems music battles composed jazz.  Plus, hear a portion of  Joseph C. Phillips Jr.’s immense work, "Vipassana," which, in the Pali language of early Buddhist texts, means "insight." It’s a work that calls for an expanded Numinous ensemble of 25 instrumentalists and singers.
