The second installment in Atavistic’s Out Trios Series features three highly-regarded Chicago-based artists: guitarist Jeff Parker (Tortoise/Isotope/Tricolor), electronics savant Kevin Drumm (Drag City solo/Vandermark Territory Band), and Chicago free jazz titan Michael Zerang (Solistice w/ Hamid Drake & proprietor of The Candlestick Maker venue).
If you’re familiar with the work of any of these reknown gents, you’ll find the vernacular they’re communicating in to be singular in nature- even though they’re each speaking in the language of their traditional arsenals of choice. A very unique session recorded at Chicago’s Planet Sounds, edited by Parker & Drumm at Soma, and mastered by John McCortney at Airwave, Out Trios Volume Two is focused on the microscopic details of arcane interplay & musical communication.
Atavistic’s Out Trios Series is dedicated exclusively to issuing the most captivating instrumental music available- as deployed within the context, structure & constraints of the trio format. The Series is an open-ended experiment in freedom, interaction & sonic architecture.
