Thanks to the power of the Internet, occasionally I find some great music.
Apparently, there's some in Seattle:
This is an amazing blend of the beautiful and delicate, with a sort of grandiosity. Do yourself a favor and watch the whole 11 minutes. Really nice, simple use of electronics. Something that is really important for me in the use of electronics with acoustic instruments is a sense of composition and balance, which this--for me--demonstrates perfectly.
The tenor sax/drums combo reminded me of another duo that played here in Madison recently, at a concert presented by Surrounded by Reality, that I was lucky enough to be at. The perpetually skronky Patrick Breiner played an improvised set with the stellar Chicago drummer Tim Daisy.
Pretty different, content-wise, but also a really tasty blend of the tenor sax and drums. A good sound world to spend some time in.
I send emails occasionally about upcoming performances. They're very cordial.
