Red October by Polyorchard.
Bandcamp Link: Red October
A fine group of young men, playing freely and creatively.
Trombone, Saxophone, Percussion, and Double Bass.
Thinking about what language to use and differentiate this from yesterday’s DEK Trio album, other than just different instruments and different people.
Or, maybe that is enough?
Well, they both seem to be mostly improvised music and both are live albums. Red October is a larger group, (and particularly impressively recorded for being recorded live). Burning Below Zero has a piano, but no bass and a single wind instrument, giving it a different feel. Polyorchard’s album contains fewer allusions to popular music. Both have very impressive players. Both are great albums.
Will need to work on this idea of differentiating modern improvised musics. On the “to-do list”.
