ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brooklyn-based Red Piano Records is proud to announce the release of Live at the Bimhuis from Amsterdam based Indie jazz trio Wild Man Conspiracy and Brooklyn based tenor saxophonist Chris Cheek. This third album of Wild Man Conspiracy on Red Piano Records features the group and special guest Chris Cheek in an exciting live setting. The CD was recorded for a live audience on March 23rd 2018 at one of the most beautiful venues for jazz; the Bimhuis in Amsterdam. Wild Man Conspiracy and Chris Cheek play 8 original compositions on this album.

WILD MAN CONSPIRACY

‘Guitarist Guillermo Celano, trumpeter Gerard Kleijn and drummer Joost Kesselaar
are established names on the Dutch and European jazz and improvisation scene. Put them together in a room and something happens. And as can be expected of great jazz: they never know quite what will happen in advance.’ Volkskrant 2015 / Dutch National Paper

Since their first appearance at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam in 2011, WMC have recorded three albums and toured extensively in Holland and across Europe. The instrumentation of the band is rarely found in the jazz world. With deep appreciation for the jazz tradition they are also deeply inspired by rock, modern contemporary music and film music. The combination of acoustic and electronic sounds is exciting and keeps the listener engaged. This irreverent improvising Dutch trio explores sonic possibilities and pushes limits of interplay.

In 2017 the cd ‘Short Stories’ became editor’s pick in Downbeat. Some press: ‘intriguing! ‘Taking the listener somewhere completely new’, ‘This band is clearly centered in the present’.

Their latest project ”Live At The Bimhuis” which also features tenor saxophonist Chris Cheek was recorded after two European tours in 2016 and 2018.


A musical undertaking that can scarcely be compared
with anything already done in this field.

CHRIS CHEEK

St. Louis born Chris Cheek is one of the most sought after saxophonists in the jazz world today, having played in the groups of legendary artists such as Paul Motian, Charlie Haden, Steve Swallow and Bill Frisell. As a leader he has performed with the likes of Jorge Rossy, Brad Mehldau, and Kurt Rosenwinkel. His CD’s have received rave reviews widely and have become favorites among fellow musicians and listeners alike. He is also co-leader of the bands "Rudder"and "The Bloomdaddies”. Chris' music encompasses a wide vista, firmly rooted in the jazz tradition with a foot towards the unknown. As Steve Swallow and Carla Bley put it: "On the one hand, he's the very embodiment of gentle, graceful lyricism. But he's unable to resist the urge to subvert. He's a master of the sucker punch; just when he's convinced you that things couldn't be sweeter, he'll play something that jolts you right back to real life, something as direct and succinct as an uppercut. Do not trust this man! Listen at your peril." His flexible, dynamic sound, along with his adaptability and inventiveness makes him a perfect fit to the sound of Wild Man Conspiracy.

THE TUNES

1. Strawberry Jam
Strawberry Jam was written for a friend who likes those tiny sweet fruits, and who also listens to Jazz and Pop music. Chris tried to find something that could be enjoyed at breakfast or while driving on the open highway. A perfect song for a nice jam too.
2. The Other
This cinematic and storytelling piece is more like a suite dedicated to 'the other'.
There’s a lot of discussion about 'the other' nowadays, but isn’t it so? The other, that’s you!
3. Parcelas Desiguales
A contemplation about the fact that few people in the world have a lot - and a lot of people in the world have almost nothing. Unequal parts is about this human failure.
4. Volver
After a great tour with Wild Man Conspiracy in Catalunya, we wanted to return to Spain as soon as possible. A tune full of desire and melancholia. With a glimpse of stunning Spanish actress, Penelope Cruz.
5. Victor
This tune isn’t about the Russian president, Victor Putin, because his name is Vladimir. No-one knows who this guy Victor is and unfortunately, Guillermo isn’t planning to divulge the secret of this mysterious man.
6. Blues Cruise
Writing Blues Cruise was Chris’s way of exploring the experience of being on the open ocean and playing music on a ship. The symmetrical part of the tune originates from working with the reciprocal or mirror harmony and melody of the original idea. Chris likes to think of it, as hearing the same thing above and reflected below the horizon of the water’s surface.
7. The Adventures of Evil Pancake and Friends
A critic once said: The aliens seem to have landed in the head of Celano whom thankfully used their influence for he has created a new science. This tune is proof of that once more.
Dali meets Monk meets Celano.
8. No More Tango
It takes two to tango. This tune shows what happens when the other isn’t around.
After all, dancing the tango can’t save a relationship.
