Corey Mwamba presents a grand meeting of three luminaries in the fields of improvisation and avant-garde. The group composed of French double bassist Joëlle Léandre who has been a key part of both free improvisation and contemporary classical music since the early 1980s; accordionist and vocalist Pauline Oliveros, a pioneering figure in late-20th-century experimental music and George Lewis, a leading academic for experimental music by black artists on trombone and electronics. The recording, called Play As You Go, was made by the national Czech radio station as part of the VS. Interpretation festival in Prague in 2014.
Plus there are melodic motifs from pianist Aki Takase and saxophonist Daniel Erdmann on a new release called Isn’t It Romantic?
