Another Dull Dawn
"CC ... blew the 'free' into free music again, threw an energy molotov cocktail over western massachussets, and has a non-academic and unlimited interest in sounds far behind any traditional free music school! This LP is a collection of most of his different techniques that blew you away when you saw him play live. - Ultra Eczema"
""It wasn’t an exercise in constraint necessarily; it was just what I was feeling. I made that record because those were the sounds I was hearing in my head. The first solo record [Young Cricketer]...it wasn’t like it changed the world, but it did change my little world. It was a first statement, and that’s a powerful thing—it gives context to everything that comes after it. Since there's no point in saying the same thing twice, I felt like the second solo record should be as far away from the first as possible, while still feeling honest to me." Chris Corsano - Bomb Magazine"
The Young Cricketer
""The Young Cricketer plays out like a showreel for Corsano’s miraculous dexterity and virtuosity as a drummer. It’s a set of recordings made during Corsano’s time living in Manchester back in 2006 utilising all manner of objects and apparatus to offset and treat his drumkit, often morphing its sound into something unrecognisable. The Young Cricketer is a beautifully recorded album, with Corsano’s expanded kit occupying a vast stereo field, and every percussive gesture allotted its own distinct place in the mix. Consequently, this is probably the most thorough representation of Corsano’s near peerless drumming yet committed to record and stands as a pretty indispensable document for all lovers of free music and percussive invention. Stunning.” - Julien Héraud"
"With 19 tracks covering a variety of approaches and linked by short improvisations, Cut is a cohesive and workmanlike record with minimal flair and a lot of interest. In continuous dialogue with his own ideas and limitations, as well as that of his large but well-chosen arsenal, Chris Corsano continues to display a solo language that is both rigorous and inviting. - Clifford Allen, Tiny Mix Tapes Eureka! review"
