GUSTAFSSON, MATS / KURT NEWMAN / MIKE GENNARO - PORT HURON PICNIC (CD)


"Recorded May 17, 1999, in Chicago. A flickering evanescent set featuring Swedish reed maestro Mats Gustaffson with the promising young Canadian duo of Gennaro and Newman also known as Wrist Error. The latter give credence to the reality of a new improvisation scene in Toronto. There is an appreciation of space and listening that belies the relative youth of this trio. Despite it being the meeting of a veteran improviser and two newcomers, the music is realized as though the three were already a long standing group." Mats Gustafsson, soprano & baritone sax, flute, flutephone, Kurt Newman, electric guitar. Mike Gennaro, drums, percussion. "This is music existing in a relatively steady state of density. It is leaning forward music. Its energy level somehow resists translation into volume of textual surliness. ... This isn't a narrative or telling. It's a sequence of events you can narrate if you so desire." (David Grubbs, liner notes)
