Can't talk now. Listening

Playing right now: Cylinder - s/t (Clean Feed)
I got home tonight and a package from Clean Feed was waiting for me. Ha cha! I got two albums that feature Aram Shelton, but this one is more like a co-operative (I'm tempted to, but won't, use that word ascribed to bands like Blind Faith to describe Cylinder). Along with Shelton (alto, b-flat and bass clarinets), it includes Darren Johnston (trumpet), Lisa Mezzacappa (bass) and Kjell Nordeson (drums).

The other disc is by Arrive - Shelton, Jason Adasiewicz, Jason Roebke and Tim Daisy.

Too busy listening, but just wanted to make a request. It looks like the hits to this blog are starting to come more from people looking to actually check out the reviews, and not so much spammers or people who just hit "Next blog" while viewing. If you're checking out the blog, please stop to say hi, or leave a comment or something. It'd be cool to know what people think. And to see if the googlebot person in Mountain View is a. a real person and b. someone interested in the music or someone just doing their job.

Good listening! Those two CDs are some of the best of 2011. Shelton is one of my favorite altoists, and the groups are great. You should check out his duo with Nordeson. Good stuff. Keep up the good work! Rob

Thanks, Rob. I'll try to check that duo out. I discovered him through Fast Citizens and actually got to see one of his quartets in Pittsburgh last year.
