Rudolph, Adam/Moving Pictures - Dream Garden

I just saw this marvelous octet last night (3/3/08) in Baltimore and I really think a lot of people here would be blown away by this superb group. Percussionist Adam has taken people from the worlds of jazz (Graham Haynes) free jazz (Hamid Drake), improvised/out music (Ned Rothenberg), world music (Steve Gorn, Brahim Fribgane) and composed a series of pieces to blend all of this together in a totally alluring and NOT sweed 'world-jazz' fashion. Think Bengt Berger's Bitter Funeral Beer Band, Christer Bothen circa Trance Dance and Archimedes Badkar and you're in the right direction. If you like that sound, then this comes personally highly recommended.

"Composer, hand drummer & percussionist Adam Rudolph has been hailed as “a pioneer in world music” by the New York Times. For decades, Rudolph’s appeared at festivals and concerts worldwide. His recordings blend contemporary improvisations with music of other cultures, notably Gnawa (Moroccan) music. He’s performed & recorded with Don Cherry (Gift of the Gnawa, which he also produced), Yusef Lateef, Jon Hassell, Abbey Lincoln, Pharoah Sanders, Vernon Reid, Cassandra Wilson, David Murray, Bill Laswell, Uri Caine, Sting, Talvin Singh, DJ Spooky, Don Byron & others. Recorded at Bill Laswell’s studio, this new recording features Brahim Fribgane (oud, tarija); Graham Haynes (cornet, flugelhorn); Hamid Drake (drum set, frame drum); Kenny Wessel (guitars); Ned Rothenberg (shakuhachi, bass clarinet, bass flute, alto sax) Shanir Blumenkrantz (acoustic bass, sintir) and Steve Gorn (bansuri, clarinet, Pakistani oboe)."

"I’m trying to work with languages and forms that resonate with me, from diverse music cultures I’ve been involvement over many years."-Adam Rudolph
