Friday night was Sun Ra night at The Edge. Great space, great music, and they showed the 1959 film Cry of Jazz.
Been seeing some great stuff at Flatpack Festival. First up was Sakamoto Hiromichi performing after a showing of We Don’t Care About Music Anyway. He took a grinder or a sander to the spike on his cello, producing sparks. Bit showy but when the improv was juxtaposed with the melodic samples it took the music to a real nice place. Like a minimal version of the Spring Heel Jack stuff.
