Brodie West + Kurt Newman - [excerpt from set 1, second piece]

This intriguing pairing of sax and guitar pushed in several different directions, with plenty skrtch and chorp. In several points of the first set, it seemed as if the best background material to give context to Kurt Newman's choices would be his recent experimental metal excursions, although there were some different tone-zones essayed further along in the evening.

[Kurt Newman will be leading a trio version of his Nashville Minimalism Unit at the TONE Festival opener (alongside Tashi Dorji's Manas and Clarinet Panic Redux) at The Baby G on Sunday, June 3rd. Brodie West will also be playing at TONE as half of Ways, opening for Charles Gayle at Array Space on Friday, June 22nd.]
