Tenor Rising / Drums Expanding - Tenor Rising / Drums Expanding

Bleak Bliss - Wed, 01/01/2014 - 15:30



I hope that 2013 was a good year for you!

For me, it was unremittingly brutal and I couldn't wait to see the back of the bastard!

This is a single-sided LP released on No-Neck Blues Band's Sound@One label in 1996.

Sabir Mateen on tenor sax with Daniel Carter and David Nuss on drums in a sweet live session.

If you feel the need to blast away the demons of the previous year ... this is for you.

Here's To 2014!

Kaoru Abe - 彗星 Partitas - Unfinished

Bleak Bliss - Sun, 12/29/2013 - 08:05
White-hot and affectingly lyrical double album by Kaoru Abe, one of the greatest free-jazz saxophone players who ever lived. The overwhelming intensity of his solo scorch is the precursor to artists like Borbetomagus, Tamio Shiraishi, Thomas Ankersmit, Masayoshi Urabe, and basically anyone who ever decided to pick up a saxophone and blow the living hell out of it. In the jazz world, he's in a class with Albert Ayler, Masayuki Takayanagi, and Peter Brotzmann, though his influence extends beyond jazz. The ghost of Abe's passionate shriek can be heard in the work of outsiders such as Hijokaidan, Otomo Yoshihide, LetheKeiji Haino, and Antoine Chessex, to name only a few. Unfortunately, Abe's tumultuous life ended too early; he died of drug overdose in 1978 when he was just 29 years old. 
"Paritas" was recorded in 1973 and released after his death as a 2xLP in 1981. It's had a few 2xCD reissues over the years, all of which are currently out of print, scarce, and (as you might expect) pricey. I'm still not sure what about this is "unfinished". The liner notes are written in Japanese (a language which neither Mr. Inside nor I can read) and not much information is available online. If you can read Japanese and can help explain what about this is unfinished, please leave a comment here.

Kaoru Abe - Mort À Credit

Bleak Bliss - Sun, 12/29/2013 - 08:00
This 2xLP (and later, 2xCD) is one of the few Kaoru Abe albums to have been published during his lifetime. It contains solo sax improvisation recorded in October 1975, with one track of solo bass clarinet, in what appears to be a change in his style. Toned down from the full-bore chaotic note-flurry of his previous albums, "Mort a Credit" contains looser and more spacious music in a mostly high register, with bizarre shifts in microphone placement (though Abe might simply be moving towards and away from the stationary mic). There are long chasms of heavy silence, punctuated by machine-gun squeak. While it isn't generally regarded as his best recording (for those, listen to any of the posthumous live albums released by PSF and collected in a box set by Youth Inc.), "Mort a Credit" definitely makes clear the path from Abe to contemporary players Masayoshi Urabe and Tamio Shiraishi.

Turk Knifes Pope - Performance Crippling Data Restriction

Bleak Bliss - Sat, 12/28/2013 - 09:34
That bunny sure has an old computer. Maybe he's surprised that it still works. Oh wait, this album is from 1998! No laptops back then, kiddos.

"Performance Crippling..." is an unknown masterpiece of sci-fi ambience by Destin LeBlanc, one of the artists who ran the Zenflesh label in San Fransciso. It deserves to be dusted off, turned up loud, and allowed to permeate the air and seep into your pores.

Bleak Bliss - Sat, 12/28/2013 - 09:28
Terrific time capsule compilation of underground experimental/ambient noise circa 1998, on a San Francisco label called Zenflesh. The label was run by Destin LeBlanc, who recorded as Turk Knifes Pope, and Jim Kaiser, who recorded improvised noise as Petit Mal. Both artists appear on this album, as does Randy Yau, The Bran (Another Plight of Medic's...) Pos, Instagon, some non-local artists like Flatline Construct, Noise/Girl, and Origami Replika, plus other artists who remain unknown to me and so are worth investigating for those of you who enjoy digging below the underground.

Bleak Bliss - Fri, 12/27/2013 - 12:05

I asked your friends what you wanted for Christmas, and they all told me the same thing: Kadef! So here you go. I hope you're surprised. This LP was released on Kommissar Hjuler's Der Schone-Hjuler-Memroial-Fond label in 2005. Only 30 copies were pressed, which probably more than covered actual demand. Kalojan Witanski, the mysterious artist behind Kadef, made a unique painting for each sleeve.
