Andre Darius & Riley Theodore - Recombinations


This release is about 8 musicians based in 6 coutries on 3 continents.
Led by Riley Theodore (USA) and Andre Darius (France), their long distance collaborations sound like a bunch of avant-garde jazz sculpturs and express a deep feeling of freedom, specific to abstract expressionism to my ears.
Hard to believe those tracks are resulting from an exchange of datas, so acoustic texture, artists’ bodies and breathing are tangible here.
Certainly “recombinations” is a collective effort that deserves to be listened to carefully.
