    The Vines Of Kuzu Grow

    March 23, 2021

    Our dear Tashi Dorji and Tyler Damon reunited with Dave Rempis as the brawlin' n' mighty Kuzu. Their third and latest LP -- The Glass Delusion -- is out on Astral Spirits. You need it.

    "The trio build from tiny gestures to a stampeding charge, then subside to a simmering stew of tart tones before breaking into an unmetered sledgehammer duel," says Bill Meyer.

    Lao Dan's Hands & Feet

    October 1, 2020

    Lao Dan has a terrific new solo cassette out -- Chinese Medicine 草乙术It's another windown into his expolsive and highly textural playing style that knocks the whole East vs West jazz/style discussoin on its ass.

    The album is released by the new London label Dusty Ballz that is focused on the Chinese underground. Per the label: "Recorded in June 2019, this is a solo set in which two instruments – tenor saxophone and Zheng, also known as the Chinese zither – were played successively and simultaneously by hands and feet. The recording was made in one go with no overdub or effect added."
