“California-born, New York-based drummer, percussionist and composer Ches Smith has been hailed by The New York Times as “one of the wiliest drummers on the experimental scene.”
Laugh Ash features a brilliant ensemble, & the album makes thrilling use of disorientation and juxtaposition: starkly beautiful chamber melodies coexist with synthetic rhythms, explosive bursts of improvisation with elusive song forms, austere ambience with thundering complexity. Eclectic, undoubtedly, but in a paradoxical way that is defiantly cohesive while never losing sight of the fact that none of it should be.”
