Peter Evans with the Totem Trio (Bruce Eisenbeil, Tom Blancarte, Andrew Drury) and others - Solo, Duo (Sparks), Trios and Quartets



Here is some remarkable contemporary free improvisation - these cats are definitely doing something different, largely led by the extraordinary trumpet of Peter Evans. I hope you enjoy this.

I've left the radio commentary and interviews in, not because they offer any particular insight into this music, but because they're quite funny.

I hope you don't look at this as trolling, but I just upped a show over on my blog that I think many of the regular readers of this great blog here would enjoy:

Thanks for this great post.

I have a question about an old download that I may or may not have found on this page. I have two folders expanded from ZIP/RAR files called PDM_AL_1 and PDM_AL_2 which contain live recordings by a sax-guitar-drums free improv trio. If anyone has a clue who is on that recording, please post it here. The pieces in that set have titles "played", "built", "whispered", "axed", etc....
