Recording: Retired

Artist: Retired

Song: Lonely Woman [composer: Ornette Coleman]

Recorded at The Baby G, March 15, 2017.

Retired - Lonely Woman

Retired opened up this Burn Down the Capital show with their take on this Ornette Coleman standard, which was totally on point even if they have accused themselves of committing Crimes Against Jazz. With the rhythm section finding the means to harmolodically hover/drone without rushing the entrance of the melody, this showed off the group's ability to pull back from landfill landmine no wave skronk. (That latter style is evident on a newly-released live DVD catching an outdoor guerrilla performance by the band.)
