The Rempis Percussion Quartet - Circular Logic download mp3 album
With Circular Logic, one of the most exciting albums of the year, Rempis steps up to lead a free bop band with two rampaging drummers. The music on Circular Logic consists of two long completely improvised performances, both recorded live. On ".," which runs for over half an hour, Rempis plays well on alto, baritone, and tenor saxophones, while on ".," he concentrates on baritone. Rempis opens the disc on alto sax, disgorging a repeated quarter note, then expanding it into riffs, melodies, and swinging lines, sometimes punctuated with fast runs or episodes of screaming or other noise elements. His tone is very warm, very full, pretty and pure, just as it is on all his horns, although he also invests his sound with some real bite.
Using these influences, the band creates spontaneous music that nevertheless maintains a focus on ensemble motion and compositional structures.
Formed originally for a house party in April 2004, the group's performances maintain an unabashedly raucous energy based on relentless grooves and unrestrained blowing, tempered with occasional moments of quiet balladry.
