 Kyle Bruckmann's Wrack (1 Albums, 2 Tracks)


  • Bruckmann/Rosenberg/Zerang
"This is not your typical jazz or improvised music record and for the sheer adventure of it all, as well as the chance to enjoy some accomplished Chicagoans (and one now ex-Chicagoan, the leader), it is a worthy taste of several considerable talents." (Jay Collins, One Final Note) With Jason
Stein (bass clarinet), Jen Clare Paulson (viola), Anton Hatwich (bass), and Tim Daisy (percussion). Wrack is both a chamber ensemble with a highly unusual instrumentation and a book of compositions tailor-made for the musical personalities of its members. While the compositions' melodic and contrapuntal content is reminiscent of European classical modernism, the open structures, improvisational procedures and energetic performances are heavily indebted to the innovations of the African-American Creative Music tradition. Wrack's debut record on Red Toucan (with Kurt Johnson on bass, omitting Stein and adding Jeb Bishop on trombone) demonstrated the band's "ability to combine turned-up flame with clear-headed attention to texture and space" and was hailed as "a document of exciting new directions from some of Chicago's best players."
