Here is the 2015 debut release from the incredible Montreal based quartet (now trio) IN THE SEA. Featuring the one and only TRISTAN HONSINGER of ICP Orchestra alongside Montreal's finest improvisers Nicolas Caloia, Joshua Zubot & Isaiah Ceccarelli!
The american born Honsigner started his illustrious improv career 40+ years ago in Montreal (after moving from Boston to avoid the draft and eventually settling in Europe), this release finds him returning to his Montreal roots with some of the best improv players on the current Montreal scene. In The Sea finds the quartet diving into 50+ minutes of world-altering improv that stretch the boundaries of free improvisation: fluttering strings, wrangled double bass bowing, clattering percussion and stream-of-consciousness meets gibberish spoken vocals intertwine to create a seamless album. There is an elegance & playful lyricism to their vibrant collective sounds but not without a sense of purpose and power in their execution that can only come from the years of experience represented in this group. This is free jazz that comes straight from the heart, and the gut! Powerful and enthralling.
