Artist: Mike Gennaro + Mark Hundevad
Songs: [two excerpts]
Recorded at Dundas Video (Track Could Bend #18), September 6, 2016.
I had seen Mike Gennaro and Mark Hundevad playing together not too long before this in a trio with Colin Fisher, so this duo set gave an opportunity to see how different things could be. While power drummer Gennaro was the backbone both times out, Hundevad (a noted percussionist himself) pivoted from the marimba/piano work in the trio to some cool Moog-powered synth moves here. Suggesting funk squelch and Sun Ra soul-stabs, Hundevad shaped this set in some very cool ways while Gennaro provided pulse and drive to keep things moving along.
[The next Track Could Bend is coming up on Tuesday (October 4th) and will feature CHOBO with Strings, Goosey (The Holy Gasp's Benjamin Hackman and Karen Ng), and INCHOATE.]
