Description

'Chamaeleon' is a stellar offering from electric guitarist Edward Ricart's powerful working quartet, augmented by a very special guest... firebrand English saxophonist Paul Dunmall. This set of music is freely improvised, yet exists firmly within the jazz tradition.

Edward Ricart is a rising star of improvised music, with collaborations ranging from members of the rock bands Fugazi, Tortoise, Black Flag, and Bardo Pond to Merzbow, and jazz legends Peter Brotzman, William Hooker, Ches Smith, Travis Laplante, Kevin Shea, Roy Campbell, Nick Millevoi, Tim Daisy, Marty Ehrlich, Angelica Sanchez, and Steve Swell, among many others. He is also a member of Ohio-based avant rock trio Hyrrokkin, and Washington DC free-rock duo Matta Gawa.

Recorded in Brooklyn at Seizures Palace (Swans, Akron/Family, Charles Gayle, Angels of Light) during Paul's visit to New York City for the Vision Festival in 2012, Ricart pulled together his group for a rare opportunity to document Dunmall along a crew of Downtown New York's finest... The band features legendary trumpeter Herb Robertson, bassist Jason Ajemian (Marc Ribot, Ken Vandermark, Rob Mazurek), and drummer Andrew Barker (Gold Sparkle Band, Sirone, William Parker).

The record boasts gorgeous graphic design and layout by The Designer's Republic - perhaps best known for their work for Warp Records, Autechre, and Aphex Twin, among many others.

Personnel: Edward Ricart: Guitar, Herb Robertson (trumpet, little instruments), Jason Ajemian (bass), Andrew Barker (drums), Paul Dunmall (tenor saxophone)
