    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

    New Porticos record, just released - this is their most overtly committed recording to Reichian minimalist serialism.

    I've had it on more or less constant play today - I'm swithering between thinking it's the best thing they've ever done, or it's an audacious experiment which doesn't quite work.

    Fascinated to know what youse guys think!!

    It's a lot more Reichian and ambient than their previous works. It's going to take a while to assess. Definitely good, not sure if its going to stack up compared to previous releases.

    This is exactly how it struck me, Ian. If I'd heard it without all of their music that has preceded it, I think I might have been tempted to disregard it. But in the context of that music, it becomes a more singular endeavour.

    In the third track, especially, I started to hear the influence of Jack Wylie's recent collaboration with Senegalese drummers, & more pieces began to fall into place.

    TBH, I haven't been much of a fan since the Automation, but I guess I haven't got over the phasing out of the Hang drums.

    Will listen carefully this one, as usual.
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    The hang drums provide the initial pulse on the first & longest track on this outhng, Trane. They oscillate between two similar patterns, one more complex, the other more simple & with a dominant downbeat.

    Anyone else been listening to Nik Bärtsch's new album on ecm, Entendre?

    https://ecmrecords.bandcamp.com/album/entendre

    All of the pieces are for solo piano, & many are rearrangements of Moduls from Ronin or Mobile records.

    I think that this one is really going to reward multiple listenings!

    I'm envious that you're going to get to see the Porticos live, Xav!

    Any prospect of you performing in front of audiences this summer?

    That's the one one canceled gig that really annoyed me last year.

    I will try to get some filming. I'm excited !
    As for Ghost Rhythms, no live plans for this summer (mixing, mastering, for the new disc, and rehearsals), first concert is late september.

    I posted a link to a video by Graham Costello's Strata in the Jazz Discussion thread, but it may actually be more appropriate here. Whilst the serialist patterns of groups like Ronin are the foundation for the band's distinctive groove, there's also more of a "big band" dimension to their music, coming from the trombone & sax combo.

    They have a new album out in a couple of months, but the above link takes you to their excellent debut ep.
    I'm really liking his new one, Second Lives, and the previous one Obelisk

    O/T for this thread as it's in the “visceral doom jazz” bag apparently, in no way minimalist, but have you come across this Costello project?



    It's damn good.

    "a raucous, foot-stomping journey through the dreich underbelly of Glasgow's emergent jazz scene."

    Always keen to explore dreich underbellies

    Update - boy oh boy, I'm listening now, & am just into track 2, & it's brilliant - a turbo charged outing that calls to mind Theon Cross + Moses Boyd + Shabaka.

    That's a very apt description

    is this redlated to the Gearbox record label?

    I don’t think it’s released on any label at this point, or in physical format - just a BC download made available by the band.
