Serving the San Francisco Bay Area New Music Community

Artist Dave Tucker West Coast Group
Title Tenderloin
Label Pax Recordings - PR90264 -
Released On 1/6/2004

Although he is perhaps best known for his work as a guitarist in The Fall between 1980-1, Tucker is an experienced improviser, having worked regularly with improvising ensembles such as the London Improvisers' Orchestra and The School of Velocity with Evan Parker. An edgy player with a sharp musical mind, Tucker is joined on this recording by top-flight Bay Area musicians including Ernesto Diaz-Infante (acoustic guitar), Danielle DeGruttola (cello), Damon Smith (double bass), Scott R. Looney (laptop) and Garth Powell (drums/percussion). The result is music that mixes compelling rhythms, pointillism, atonality, electro-acoustic improv, and flexibility in playing techniques to explore new musical possibilities. Limited edition almost gone! "High energy avant-rock and jazz edge. Recommended!" --Jerry Kranitz, Aural Innovations
