Album Notes
Loops is a multi-faceted group, based around electric guitar, drum kit and electric bass. The trio is occasionally augmented by other musicians, as occurs on this C.D. and in many of their concerts. Loops' style has been described as "jazz-rock fusion with an Indian flavour".

Since its inception in 1995, Loops has been defining and re-defining the nexus where improvisation meets composition, where jazz meets classical music, and where acoustic sound meets electronic sound.

"Recursion" is Loops' first commercially-released album, and features of a core trio of Jonathan Dimond (electric bass, tabla), Jamie Clark (electric and acoustic guitar) and Ken Edie (drums). The band often augments itself with artists of such virtuosity and breadth as John Rodgers (violin - who appears on this particular album), Soumya Chakraverty (sarod), and Gulfam Sabri (tabla). Loops has also performed in collaboration with projected film and early childhood theatre.

Loops has appeared in such festivals as "Pinnacles" (1996, 2001), the Brisbane International Festival of Music (1998, 2000), the Queensland Biennial Festival of Music (2001), and the Wangaratta Jazz Festival (2000). Loops was Ensemble in Residence at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Griffith University (2000, 2001). Loops competed as state finalists in the ABC’s innaugral "Improv Awards" (1999). New compositions were created for and premiered at most of these events.
The band has toured New South Wales, South Australia, and Victoria (2000, 2002) and has two Compact Discs of its own: "Recursion" (1999) and the double album "Ek!" (2001). The band is also featured on Jonathan Dimond's "Journeys: People, Places" (2005) and Loops/Topology's "Airwaves: 100 Years of Radio" (2006).

A unique collection of compositions that is brought together through a unique se
The music on this cd is a unique fusion between east and west, while keeping true to the voice of the composer and his bandmates' incredible flexibility and easy virtuosity.

High energy; High skill
Wow! How do these guys play this stuff and keep it in TIME!
Very heavy rhythms, with an exotic flavor. Nothing like it has fallen on my ears before. BUY IT NOW and give these guys a reward for their sweat!


Great improvisational music from the land Down Under
Exceptional musicians Jonathan Dimond and Jamie Clark delicately fuse influences of India with in the context of a contemporary jazz ensemble. I also particularly like the way spoken voice is used on the composition Spare Change. Give these Aussies a chance and buy this CD.
