Brazilian polyrhythms and a 100-foot-long instrument
Max Reinhardt takes a trip around the outer edges of experimental music with an improvisation for 100 feet of stainless steel string, Brazilian polyrhythms and classic reggae.
Max Reinhardt takes a trip around the outer edges of experimental music. The genre-defying improvising cellist Okkyung Lee pairs up with Ellen Fullman and her Long String Instrument - 100ft strings of taught stainless steel in a Swedish bakery for a one-off live performance. A new Brazilian big band from bassist Itibere Zwarg, a long standing collaborator with Hermeto Pascoal, brings joy and colour to the end of January. And some bonus material from Trojan label stalwarts The Pioneers and a double reissue of their late 1960s albums Long Shot and Battle of the Giants.
