David Haney, Dominic Duval, Blaise Siwula
Jun 04, 2010 08:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Three truly great players together for the first time.
David Haney grew up in Calgary, Canada and has come onto the scene in the past few years with a prolific, well received series of recordings for Cadence Jazz and CIMP. He is in the realm of Free Improv and has a style that is at once thoughtful and spontaneous.
Dominic Duval is one of the most-recorded free jazz bassists on the planet. Associations with producer Bob Rusch's C.I.M.P. and Cadence Jazz labels and producer Leo Feigin's Leo Records led to Duval's appearances on an extraordinary number of albums. Everything Duval's recorded presents him in a positive light, yet there's so much to choose from, one hardly knows where to begin. Remarkable is its Nightbird Inventions, a solo disc made for Cadence Jazz on which Duval electronically manipulates the bass to fascinating ends. Other collaborations of note include the band Trio X, a cooperative trio with saxophonist Joe McPhee and drummer Jay Rosen, and his various projects with saxophonist Mark Whitecage. Duval has also recorded and toured as a member of pianist Cecil Taylor's band.
Saxophonist Blaise Siwula has been an active participant in New York's 'underground' jazz scene for the past two decades. Although he released several recordings on independent labels, it wasn't until the millennium that he started garnering attention. Siwula is a committed free player and his highly unique sound couples a dry throaty wail with a command of his instrument's entire range and a wavering vibrato that's very effective.
