Paul Dunmall and Tony Bianco have recently released two cds of duets dedicated to their love and respect of the music of John Coltrane: Thank you to John Coltrane and Tribute to Coltrane (Slam). Last week they took it to London's Cafe Oto in the midst of a heatwave. Tony Bianco was sweat-soaked from simply setting up his kit. This man's strength and energy is superhuman. Paul Dunmall, loving Trane's music so much, raised the temperature even higher with his inspired and impassioned saxophonics.
Big thanks to Gus for his minidisc recording. Hot stuff indeed.

This would have been a gig by the Alan Skidmore Qt. but for some reason Skid couldn't make it and Paul Dunmall agreed to stand in for him. Although Paul is a massive Coltrane fan it is only recently in his duets with Tony Bianco that he has been concentrating on using his tunes. So at the time this was an unusual thing for him to be doing. I think he relished it as much as the audience and the rest of the band did. Steve Melling, Arnie Somogyi and Mark Taylor couldn't be bettered as a superb rhythm section. Enjoy!
Er...ok, there's the blurb. I messed up and had to reupload the files. I thought I might as well actually LISTEN to the music..... It's TOTALLY, UTTERLY, WONDERFULLY, WONDERFUL. The good old Andy cassette recording sounding GOOD. Turn it up and have a blast. STUPENDOUS JAZZY JAZZ!!!

Self-produced cassette. Invisible Music Productions. IMP 001
Slight, un apologetic change of pace......
if you' like somewhat harsh jagged ,primitive, minimal ,acerbic, guitar oriented,so called Post Punk... from New Zealand , this is for you !
no Cd reissue , or reissue of any kind since a 1984,Flying Nun Vinyl release
this is from an original self released copy on their own label....
A killer record in the aforementioned genre..forefathers to my ears of later feedback drenched ,more self consciously, arty,NZ bands like Dead-C, and Dora Maar

This album is an intriguing mix of spontaneous renditions of standards and all out free improvisations , beautifully recorded by Label Mate, Saxophonist Lennie Popkin!
Long, but riveting from start to finish!
A Student and friend of the late Lennie Tristano,Crothers is dipping even further out into free territory these days , all her records are pretty wonderful , this appears to be one of the few which hasn't been reissued .
Anyone wishing to delve further should explore, the phenomenal 4 disc set of improvisations for two pianos with David Arner on the Rogue art label, which is simply stunning, in the stratospheric realm of Riley/Tippett, or Crispell/Grawe but of course, one is hard pressed to choose 1 thing to recommend , given that its all so good..
btw, Crothers also Administers the collective New Artists label, home to most of her recordings...
Band of fire a quintet featuring R.Campbell, R.Tabnik,R.Mancuso and perennial fave Ken Filiano ...is one of the best live albums I've heard in a while, it and other great things can be found here at New Artists.
The label also has a downloadable Video archive ,including much Crothers
This though out of print , and never reissued may perhaps still be purchased from Jazz records here a label run by Carole Tristano, Lennie's drummer Daughter.
Crothers own website is here
