From Dizzy Gillespie to Brandon Seabrook to Michael Leonhart to Jason Moran, in Take Five – WBGO

“If you know Brandon Seabrook, you probably know the role he plays as a human special effect, on guitar or banjo, in all manner of experimental settings. (In this space last week, he turned up as a member of Tomas Fujiwara’s Triple Double.) But it’s when he’s left to his own devices that Seabrook goes the most berserk — in a band like Seabrook Power Plant, or with sparring partners like trumpeter Peter Evans. Now comes his latest provocation, NEEDLE DRIVER, with Johnny Deblase on electric bass and Allison Miller on drums. […] This track, “Entropic Vacuum Party,” highlights some unresolved issues with thrash metal, along with a more generally impertinent and concussive rapport.” – WBGO
