Artist: William Hooker w/ Eyvind Kang & Bill Horist
Title: The Season's Fire

This all-star trio features William Hooker on drums, Eyvind Kang on violin and guitar and Bill Horist on guitar. Sync'd up like they've been playing together for eternity these recordings represent a dramatic paradigm shift in the art of improvisation. These three thoroughly modern artists scan jazz, new music and noise – stretching it all out and putting it back together within the expansive boundaries of these tremendously compelling high energy recordings.
