Gutbucket - Dance

SKU Gut 003
Founded in 1999 and originally part of the very tail end of the legendary 'downtown sound" as one of the the last bands involved in the "Knitting Factory scene", performing a residency there, as well as having their first album released by the club's label, Gutbucket celebrated their 15 years in action in 2014 with a week long residency at another legendary venue, John Zorn's The Stone.

Dance, the group's 6th album, consists of all-new material, professionally recorded live at the club for that extra energy that a live performance gives you ... as anyone who has ever seen one of the group's energetic live performances can tell you, live energy and a great band playing is what Gutbucket have always been about.

Their music currently has extremely complex, rehearsal intensive music, with lots of stop / start action and a ferocity that belies the jazz involved. This is a great one. Recommended. Period.

"The answer to the question “why record live?” became clearer as the band began the process; since it’s a live CD, the music is completely honest. It’s four musicians playing their guts out in front of captivated audiences. It’s virtuosic, but not slick – there are mistakes: sometimes the tempo pushes a bit, sometimes there’s a yelp from an audience member. But that sound of a working band at its peak in concert is unlike anything they could have created in the studio."
