Moving on to another prolific producer, Kieren Hebden
seems like he's on these pages every week, when does he find time to
sleep, or go to the toilet. I wonder if he wears a nappy when he's
making records? Remember 'The Exchange Session Vol.1' from a few months
back? Well behold!
The sequel has landed from the big intergalactic Jazz spaceship. This
is of course himself tweaking the electronics
collaborating with Steve Reid on drums and percussion. Reid is an accomplished percussionist who has played with
Legends such as James Brown, Fela Kuti, and Sun Ra. The lads here are dissin' Jazz but I'm a fan of
Miles Davis and John Coltrane
so I'm not adverse to this stuff at all. These recordings again are
live from the same improv session with no overdubs and vary from the
sublime to the intense. Worth checking if you're into
Sun Ra, Four Tet or experimental Free Jazz from labels like Impulse.
