Manifesto – Black Milk Impulses released on Metarecords

Released by METARECORDS
META 070

The music is presented as the accidental rumblings of a musical virus. The tracks tumble out of the speakers like an intoxicated businessman, but a close listen reveals that each piece is anything but inebriated…………..The joy of Manifesto is the sounds between the notes, sampled crowds, static and these interlude tracks of less than two minutes that contain the seeds of extended improvisations.

Mark Corroto – All About Jazz

At any moment, any of the three players seems entirely free to do as they wish, whether that be to inject a melody, a solo or a burst of rhythm; by some alchemy, that does not lead to a free-for-all or a cacophony but music that is focused, coherent and fluid.
