PhonoMetak Series # 2
Mats Gustafsson / Paolo Angeli
"Here with 3 improvvisations more than saxophone compositions, They are similar to choked breaths, or even more similar to some bodily function - sort hardcore jazz flatulences, sounds exactly as it would in a live performance. When You hear Gustafsson's exclamations on the end of Man in his Boat Desperately Cushing the Ice You'll get shivers."
Mats Gustafsson Nu Ensemble
"“The NU ensemble is back again! After some years of contemplation, recharging and reforming. In attack mode… in poetry mode… in love mode. A forever-changing beast. From the first installment of the ensemble back in the early 90’s, this ensemble has always been about the now, the instant now. NU. How to deal with and combine both freely improvised music and compositional methods and ideas. In the moment. Nothing radically new in that, but a very important process with lots of new perspectives to explore and joy to be shared!” Mats Gustafsson, from the liner notes"
Mats Gustafsson With John Russell & Phil Minton
"Multi-reedist Mats Gustafsson explores unique environments in improvised music with two duos performed live at Cafe OTO, one duo per side, the first with free vocalist Phil Minton for understated gargling and instrumental aberrations; the second with guitarist John Russell."
