Recording: No Angels Dancing

Artist: No Angels Dancing

Songs: [excerpts from two improvisations]

Recorded at The Tranzac (Main Hall), April 5, 2015.

No Angels Dancing - [set 1 excerpt]

No Angels Dancing - [set 2 excerpt]

With the carpet in the Southern Cross Lounge getting pulled up and ready for a replacement, the day's sets were shifted back into the Main Hall. Allison Cameron, Stephen Parkinson and D. Alex Meeks decided to spread themselves out in one corner, giving themselves an extra bit of elbow room and an expanded stereophonic field. There were a few new variations in the trio's improvised mix this time round, including (as heard in the first recording here) an appearance by Cameron's chromatic bass harmonica — a giant, double-decker thing that requires a vertigo-inducing lungful of wind to play. The second set led off with the languid funk jam in the second extract and then settled into a trancelike groove for a spell.

[No Angels Dancing returns to the Southern Cross — and, presumably a comfy new carpet — on Sunday, May 3rd, from 1 to 3 p.m. as always.]
