Liner Notes by PEK

I formed Turbulence in 2015 as I started to assemble players for the Leap of Faith Orchestra. Turbulence, the extended horn section for the Orchestra (along with guests on other instruments), also records and performs as an independent unit. We have had over 20 albums on Evil Clown with greatly varied ensembles. The only musician on all of them is myself. The sessions range from an early duet with Steve Norton and Myself (Vortex Generation Mechanisms) to a 5 horn band with bass and two percussionists (Encryption Schemes) to four albums by the side project Turbulence Doom Choir which feature myself, multiple tubas, percussion, electronics and signal processing, among other settings.

This time, Turbulence is a trio with two horn players and a drummer. Sax player Mike Caglianone came to EC recently by way of a great Mission Creep show. He and I played really well with each other right off the bat, and I immediately recruited him for Evil Clown. Mike and I both have improvisation styles which feature a strong emphasis on phrasing: I’ve found that players with this approach are very easy to improvise with. Imitation, interlocking lines, motivic exchanges and other key improvisation techniques naturally flow from a phrasing perspective.

In the 90s, Yuri and I played with the great sax player Raqib Hassan in various settings, including Cosmocentric Trio (two saxes & drums). Of course, this is the same instrumentation as this new trio format, and during The Conception of Sense performance at Outpost 186, Yuri busted out the Sun Ra Saturn chant which was a staple of The Cosmocentric Trio! In Tribute to Raqib, we present Turbulence (Cosmocentric Edition) – Eddy Flux.

As the Evil Clown story unfolds, we have some ensemble variations which immediately gel deeply and bear repeating. This was the third performance by this particular trio version of Turbulence in only a few months.
