I was sending my concert spam/new CD notice to my faithful followers and though maybe I'd send it to my LD pals as well. (See cut-n-paste below.)
timmusic news on 2 fronts:
1. "No Such Animal," featuring sax luminary KEN FIELD, is now available at
2. we have two 2006 shows to announce (so far).
FIRST, THE DISC-- "NO SUCH ANIMAL" (writeup courtesy of innova) "One night in a Somerville basement a summit took place between representatives of two of Boston's musical superpowers ó Birdsongs of the Mesozoic and Cul de Sac ó convened by guitarist/diplomat Tim Mungenast. "Entente cordiale" rather than war was the order of business, and it became a dramatic evening of free-wheeling melodic improv and coloring outside the lines.
'No Such Animal' is a rare bird indeed. Itís a new genus: Nouveau psychedelic rock, mixed with free jazz where, as Ted Drozdowski of The Boston Phoenix (another rare bird) puts it, 'ideas travel on bats' wings at supersonic speed and everyone hums ragas as they catch the bus to work.'
Led by Tim Mungenast on electric guitar, electric sitar, and bells, and featuring stalwarts Ken Field on saxes, flute, and percussion, Jon Proudman on drums, and Michael Bloom on bass; this CD is a must have for all meta-ornithologists, improvised music lovers, and over-achieving paint-by number artists.
That's because no-one could decide what color this animal should be. We have therefore provided crayons for you to color it as you please. (Refrigerator not included.)"
...IT MAKES A GREAT STOCKING STUFFER / HOLIDAY GIFT / ET CETERA!
