From Wolves To Whales
"Trumpeter Nate Wooley leaves no part of his instrument’s territory unexplored, utilising extended techniques and feedback to transform the horn from its traditional role into a far more alchemical and unclassifiable tool... The fully improvisatory yet traditionally rooted feel of the music has a lot in common with the work of Other Dimensions In Music. There’s a path in for more conservative free jazz listeners, but plenty of wilderness to get lost in, too. -Phil Freeman, The Wire"
Worse For The Wear
"After Effects must have keyframes selected from one layer in order to export them as text. -Victor Aaron, Something Else!"
"They play with spontaneous sonic searches, exploring their instruments' timbres, colors and shifting dynamics with commanding reserve and respectful interplay. -Eyal Hareuveni, All About Jazz"
"The potential for this new trio is infinite. Hopefully, there will be more where this came from. -Mark Corroto, All About Jazz"
The Rempis/Daisy Duo
"Second Spring is a primal product of sixteen years playing together some of the most challenging music out there. -Victor Aaron, Something Else!"
Dave Rempis & Lasse Marhaug
"The whole thing sounds ugly, hideous, dirty and evil – yet, there is a certain beauty under the surface because the music makes you feel alive as well, it makes you feel real if you commit yourself unconditionally ….. but it is not for the faint of heart! -Martin Schray, Free Jazz Blog "
Boss Of The Plains
"The ten pieces presented here float in ruminating glances. The drummer-less trio invites stillness as its fourth member. Rempis delivers with a stoicism, eschewing volume for eloquence. -Mark Corroto, All About Jazz"
The Rempis Percussion Quartet
"Phalanx, which pairs 2012 performances from Milwaukee and Antwerp, is the sixth recording by the Percussion Quartet. The songs are epic-the first of two Antwerp offerings runs 48 minutes-but with its continual sense of rhythmic and thematic renewal and its sheer propulsive drive, the music never wears out its welcome. -Loyd Sachs, JazzTimes"
