Chicago Underground Duo - Age of Energy

SKU 32-NSCD 020
Rob Mazurek: cornet, electronics
Chad Taylor: drums, electronics

There's some really bad-ass, fat, Moog-like sequencers on some of this that sounds like old Heldon jamming with a trumpeter! Nice!

"This year marks a milestone for the Chicago Underground Duo—their 15th year together as a band! In celebration of this momentous occasion, the duo now releases a new record on a brand-new label. Finding time to get back in the studio was a challenge, as Rob has been touring with his trio Starlicker, The Sao Paulo Underground, and the Exploding Star Orchestra while Chad has been with the Marc Ribot Trio, Side A (Ken Vandermark, Havaard Wiik), and Digital Primitives. And yet, the duo persevered to complete the new record over four days in Chicago with Todd Carter (TV Pow)."

“Their stripped-down minimal approach to music produces an apocalypse of sound.” — All About Jazz

“Mazurek is a player of great poise and elegance, while Taylor’s deftness, imagination, and formidable technical skill always make his playing a joy to listen to.” — The Wire
