Sun Ra & the Cry of Jazz

March 27, 2011

Friday night was Sun Ra night at The Edge. Great space, great music, and they showed the 1959 film Cry of Jazz.

Flatpack Festival #1

March 26, 2011

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.
