Ken Thomson and Slow/Fast:

“Mr. Thomson's compositions are intricately wrought and incident-steeped, even when they move in snowlike drifts. The gutsy precision of the playing calls for hearing this music in a performance setting.” - Nate Chinen, Critics Choice CD, The New York Times

Objective: to evaluate if csa is a therapeutic option for steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome. can female use viagra Methods: we performed a retrospective cohort study to evaluate the effects of csa in 17 steroid-resistant ins patients. The main laboratorial data, before and after the use of csa, and the response to csa were evaluated. A literature review on this subject was also done. Results: patient age ranged from 2-43 yrs. Pre-treatment renal biopsy demonstrated focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (fsgs) (64%), membranous nephropathy (mgn) (12%), mesangial glomerulonephritis (msgn) (12%) and minimal change disease (mcd) (12%). Pre-treatment laboratory tests showed a mean 24-hr proteinuria of 4372 +/- 2686 mg/dl. generic viagra without prescription Treatment with csa was given for a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 98 months. Mean 24-hr proteinuria declined from 3181 +/- 2277 before csa to 915 +/- 1140 mg/24 hr after csa (p<0. 001). buy viagra without prescription Remission was seen in 70. 5% of patients, being 52. 9% complete and 17. viagra online 6% partial. The adverse effects observed were nephrotoxicity (11. 7%), hypertrichosis (5. 8%) and gingival hyperplasia (5. 8%).

Conclusion: data from the literature suggest that csa is a good therapeutic option for patients with steroid-resistant ins, being effective in reducing proteinuria. The beneficial effect of csa demonstrated in our study was limited due to its design and the small sample size.

The 2010 debut of Slow/Fast was called the #1 Debut CD of 2010 by George Grella of The Big City blog; was in the Top 30 Albums of 2010 by The Awl's Seth Colter Walls, and was on many Jazz Journalist Association's Best of 2010 lists.

Now for 2014, the followup record comes....

Combining the sounds of chamber jazz and improvisational freedom with the coherence of contemporary classical composition, with an often distortion-laden twist, Ken Thomson and Slow/Fast bring together some of the outer-boroughs' great talents-- musicians who can perform challenging written music while bringing fire to improvisation.

With Thomson on bass clarinet, alto saxophone and compositions, they are Russ Johnson, trumpet; Nir Felder, guitar; Adam Armstrong, bass, and Fred Kennedy, drums.

The disc will be released on Brooklyn's NCM East records in September 2014.

Coming from his background performing with his punk/jazz quartet Gutbucket (touring to 19 countries and 33 US States), touring internationally with the Bang on a Can All-Stars, directing the Asphalt Orchestra (Lincoln Center, Barbican, etc), and having composed for the American Composers Orchestra and Bang on a Can, Thomson shapes the music of Slow/Fast through his unique filter. It is long-form and through-composed, with deliberate spaces for improvisation.

The group has performed across NYC at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and Winter Jazzfest, and traveled to the Midwest to perform at the Detroit Institute of the Arts and more; the individual members (and Thomson himself) have performed at prominent jazz festivals worldwide.

There is already buzz around Settle, recorded last year, having completed a successful Kickstarter campaign with 89 backer-supporters. Slow/Fast are on the roster of Subtone Concerts in Germany.
