Live at Singularity Music Series I

"... all three are unafraid to embrace conventional sonorities that temper the abstraction." John Sharpe (NYC Jazz Record)

Iluso Records presents the debut release of a new series of live concert recordings from the Singularity Music Series held monthly in Kingston, NY.

This performance, held on a snowy night on 12 January 2019, features soprano saxophonist Sam Newsome, seven string guitarist Álvaro Domene and drummer/percussionist Mike Caratti.

Newsome began the concert with a stunning prepared solo soprano piece incorporating wind chimes, balloons and hand percussion. Circular breathing and real time wide-panning techniques propelled his deeply moving and intense performance. He was joined by Domene and Caratti whose trio performance bubbled with energy and enthusiasm. From bluesy grooves to screeching altissimo scraping, the trio displayed their wide range of musical backgrounds while remaining cohesively rooted in the jazz and free improvisation traditions.
