Rudd, Roswell / Jamie Saft / Trevor Dunn / Balazs Pandi - Strength & Power

SKU 25-RNR-CD-060
As a fan of the trombone in general and of the great Roswell Rudd in particular, it cheers me greatly to see him still making great music, and with today's musical trouble-makers, at the age of 80! Right on Ros!

"In a remarkable example of uncanny group-think, pianist-keyboardist and RareNoise regular Jamie Saft (Metallic Taste of Blood, Slobber Pup, Plymouth, The New Standard, Red Hill) joins with longtime collaborators Trevor Dunn on bass and Balazs Pandi on drums and master trombonist Roswell Rudd on the astounding, purely improvised Strength&Power. Recorded live in Saft’s home studio near Woodstock, New York, this intergenerational offering features the 44-year-old pianist, 47-year-old bassist, 32-year-old Hungarian drummer and 80-year-old avant garde pioneer blending organically, telepathically on a set of conversational music running the gamut of dynamics and emotions.

As Saft explains, “All the music was completely improvised in the studio. No predetermined compositions at all. No hand signals, no charts: nothing but trust, deepest intuition, and mutual respect.”

The key to this highly interactive session, says Rudd, was not chops but rather the participants’ highly attuned listening skills."
