2011-09-22: Musica Lontana, RED Trio/John Butcher, EMF3, The Jazzfakers

Monsieur Délire, Monsieur Délire (2011/21/09)

Just out on LP is this collaboration betwee Portugal’s RED Trio (Rodrigo Pinheiro on piano, Hernani Faustino on doublebass, Gabriel Ferrandini on drums) and UK saxophone player John Butche. The three studio tracks explore some raw textures - full of grunts, strokes and surprises. I like a lot. And Butcher is a joy. Buying the LP gives you a code to download the digital version, which includes a bonus live track, which turns out to be much more in a free jazz vein. I prefer their experimental/textural side.
