Spring Heel Jack : Masses
[ the blue series ]

   $14.98      
Spring Heel Jack, the electronic duo, has teamed up with other Thirsty Ear Blue Series artists to develop a revolutionary record: Masses. Ashley Wales and John Coxon provided jazz improvisers pianist Matthew Shipp, saxophonist Tim Berne, trumpeter Roy Campbell, and a wealth of their peers with a bed of sounds that can incorporate sounds taking from machinery, pots and pans, or anything else you might have lying around the house. The jazzmen added their own voices to this stew, creating a maddeningly beautiful presentation of otherworldly blats, insidious grooves, and melancholy solos. Wales and Coxon coaxed the offering into variations that can distort in moods ranging from the manic, to the depressive. The resulting is gorgeous, unsettling, and uncompromising. Masses is not for the faint of heart. A superb collaboration of this variety demands a close listen, by anyone that has ever had interest to hear the notion of free jazz.
