Andy Haas
The Ruins of America
Resonant

Saxophonist Andy Haas, a former member of Martha and the Muffins and collaborator with such downtown icons as John Zorn, Marc Ribot, Zeena Parkins and Ikue Mori, works with ambient loops and electronic noise as a textural backdrop on this experimental offering, a follow-up to his 2007 protest record, Humanitarian War. Included are highly provocative renditions of “America the Beautiful,” Irving Berlin’s “Let’s Face the Music and Dance” and Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “A Felicidade.”
