2009 release. Since 2003, New York City's Talibam! have been charting a course through the improv waters in a way that few other groups can pull off. Rock, jazz, noise, and all stops in between collide in an aggressive mix that defines free music in the best sense of the term: nothing is deemed out of bounds. Too much fun to be a po-faced postmodern exercise, and too expertly played to be sunk in a morass of good intentions, The New Nixon Tapes hurtles through two side-long pieces in an agile cascade of rhythmic and melodic ideas. Kevin Shea (drums) and Matt Mottel (synthesizer) have worked with Cooper-Moore and Rhys Chatham, among others; here they're joined by master saxophonist/trumpeter/flautist Daniel Carter. Recorded live in the WFMU studios. Digital download coupon included. "The synth and percussion duet of Talibam! is well-served by the addition of reedsman Daniel Carter, a fixture of the NYC free jazz scene... Melodies shoot in every direction but for as free as it is, it's expertly guided and adheres to a viscous vision." ?Justin Wunsch, Dusted
