Product details

Far Flung is the fifth release from the Alister Spence Trio, and their first double CD. This release is another landmark from a unique and totally captivating group. The 19 tracks on Far Flung are an interweaving of jazz compositions, open improvisations, and re-composed post-production pieces. As with fit (2009) and Mercury (2007), Far Flung continues Alister's exploration of the possibilities within jazz music, improvisation, and sound as music. This enduring interest in sound and abstraction within jazz was first documented on Clarion Fracture Zone's ARIA Award-winning album Blue Shift (1990). The melody on La Mar Esta Enferma, is provided by triggering a tuned sample of a wok (Chinese cooking pan). In the Alister Spence Trio, all the sounds used live and on recordings are those of the trio: offering different perspectives on the instruments and the music. In live performance, triggering pre-recorded samples on a small midi controller creates the extra layers that are heard on the albums.

Duration: 89 min.
