Gord Grdina Trio with Mats Gustafsson - Barrel Fire
This variant is currently sold out
Barrel Fire is The Gordon Grdina Trios' most brutally driving, raw, dynamic record to date. The collaboration between GG3 and Mats Gustafsson at the 2009 Vancouver International Jazz Festival was recorded and Barrel Fire is the first set from that night. There are few edits in order to retain the natural raw power of the original concert. The band expands and explodes through the melodic sketches with inherent interest in the raw dynamic energy of group improvisation. The group sounds at times like a freight train screaming down the tracks in the dark recesses of your city but as the Oud takes the fore ground we are reminded of the sensitive and delicate reflection in this darkness.
“THERE IS SO MUCH POWER BEHIND THE DRUM HITS, SO MUCH PENT-UP FRUSTRATION IN THE GUITAR ENTANGLEMENTS AND AS USUAL, GUSTAFSSON MAKES THE SAX SOUND LIKE A RABID BEAST RATHER THAN A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT.” – BEAT ROUTE (ALBERTA & BC)
