Bill Evans on Jazz Music - long interview


Recommended Posts

I put this in the Jazz Thread, but really it is worthy of it's own discussion given the weight of the matter argued by Bill Evans. He gives his ideas on topics such the approach to studying music or beyond that, becoming competent in any field. He talks about jazz as an improvisation form being a return to what classical music was doing before it closed off this outlet to the players and became a rote rendering of notes tendered.

      ‘Gentle Persuaders’ is the Love Love debut from London based neo-noise-jazz outfit Sly & The Family Drone. In the form of a four track long player, Sly vomit forth a smooth serving of curious and clattering noise not devoid of fun. 

      With the ingredients of shattering baritone saxophone, splurges of analogue noise, rolling drum derangements and snarling feedback it is immediately clear that these formidable noise-mongers have honed their methods of ear-attack adeptly. Textural spaces are peppered with bouts of densely packed controlled-chaos creating a tension that builds almost imperceptibly until the crushing pay-off that comes with the final track. 

      The politest of bludgeonings, ‘Gentle Persuaders’ has a real sense of cohesion and style, at times subtle and at others shudderingly direct. 

      With their unusual and interactive live shows, the group cut their teeth stunning the audiences of punk and noise scenes across the UK and Europe. Now, Sly & The Family Drone present their most complete recording to date; a rush of sheer ataxia ushering in a new age of noise. Available to pre-order on 12" and all digital formats from www.loveloverecords.net releases April 26, 2019
