Endangered Blood - Endangered Blood (2011)
Postado por Thiago Miotto em sábado, 5 de abril de 2014.

"Oscar Noriega (alto saxophone and bass clarinet), Trevor Dunn (bass), Jim Black (drums) and Chris Speed (tenor saxophone), carry on the genre-pushing, limitless experimentation of bands like Alas No Axis, Human Feel and Electric Masada (all of which include EB members). Endangered Blood also is an urgent example of the jazz tradition's continuing power to inspire musicians to reinvent, reinterpret and re-shape. Most of all it is a celebration of long-term commitment - to friendships and to music itself. Endangered Blood was formed in 2008 to play at a benefit for a friend's cancer treatment - thus their original name, The Benefit Band. Longtime friends and collaborators Chris Speed and Jim Black should need no introduction to fans of cutting edge music. Their work together has included some of the most influential avant-jazz of the last twenty years- in their own bands and with artists like Uri Caine and Tim Berne's bloodcount. Trevor Dunn is one of the top bassists of his generation, known both for his legendary avant-rock band Mr. Bungle and for his extensive work with John Zorn and Mike Patton. Multi-reedist Oscar Noriega's relationship with Speed and Black stretches back over twenty years. Awareness of his role as an underground force in the New York jazz world is rapidly expanding due to his recent work with Paul Motian, Lee Konitz and Berne's new quartet Los Totopos".
