Cline, Alex/Kaoru/Miya Masaoka/G.E. Stinson - Cloud Plate

"Sometimes meditative, other times intensely powerful, Cloud Plate brings together four veteran improvising musicians and accomplished bandleaders, percussionist Alex Cline, vocalist Kaoru, electric koto player Miya Masaoka, and electric guitarist G.E. Stinson. This unique and inviting combination of individuals and instruments succeeds in striking a balance which allows evocative and expansive music to unfold in the moment. The beautiful package features original art throughout by famed Japanese artist Yoshio Ikezaki."

"It’s not about such strict concerns as soloing; it’s about creating mood and timbre. Cloud Plate, by never being anything less than intrusive, is rarely an easy listen...And yet, with sensibilities that come from as far afield as free jazz, multi-ethnicity, electronically generated music concrete, and the avant garde, Cloud Plate manages to assert its own complexion. It's not for the faint of heart, but those with an open mind and unrestricted imagination will find Cloud Plate never less than completely compelling."-John Kelman, All About Jazz
