Ghost in the Machine featuring Evan Parker (1996)

This 1993 date featured British saxophone and improvisation deity Evan Parker with Copenhagen's Ghost-in-the-Machine trio and Martin Klapper on electronics. This traditional quartet -- saxophones, bass, drums, and piano -- added Klapper to extend the sonic possibilities of all the instruments, which were amplified by microphones. The results are studies more in texture, atmospherics, and sonic constructions than they are in spontaneous composition. They hold the listener's interest simply because there is no way to predict what direction any particular passage, let alone entire piece, will take. This quintet was making music for its own edification, for its own sense of investigation and discovery -- and that's just fine. The more outside a work's context the listener is placed in -- especially with improvised music -- the deeper one is required to listen to find a common bridge to the sonic language spoken on the recording.

Dear Jazzme
Thanks a lot for the early xmas gift. Unfortunately, however, the link seems to lead us to an empty mediafire account. Any chance for a re-up?

Thanks for all the gifts, Steve. I'm particularly curious about your Americana recording.
Cheers and thanks.
