Ken Thomson and Slow/Fast:
Settle

“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



 

 

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; Oolidge medical marijuana dispensary cordes junction medical marijuana dispensary deer valley medical marijuana dispensary desert view medical marijuana dispensary desert view north gateway medical marijuana dispensary dolan springs medical marijuana dispensary douglas medical marijuana dispensary duncan morenci medical marijuana dispensary eloy medical marijuana dispensary encanto medical marijuana dispensary estrella medical marijuana dispensary flagstaff medical marijuana dispensary florence medical marijuana dispensary fort mohave medical marijuana dispensary fountain hills medical marijuana dispensary gilbert medical marijuana dispensary glendale medical marijuana dispensary globe globe hayden medical marijuana dispensary goodyear medical marijuana dispensary graham medical marijuana dispensary heber overgaard snowflake medical marijuana dispensary holbrook medical marijuana dispensary kingman medical marijuana dispensary lake havasu city medical marijuana dispensary laveen medical marijuana dispensary littlefield medical marijuana dispensary marana medical marijuana dispensary maricopa medical marijuana dispensary maryvale medical marijuana dispensary mesa medical marijuana dispensary north mountain medical marijuana dispensary page fredonia medical marijuana dispensary paradise valley village medical marijuana dispensary parker medical marijuana dispensary payson medical marijuana dispensary nature’s harvest peoria medical marijuana dispensary prescott medical marijuana dispensary prescott valley medical marijuana dispensary quartzsite salome medical marijuana dispensary queen creek medical marijuana dispensary round valley medical marijuana dispensary san manuel medical marijuana dispensary scottsdale medical marijuana dispensary sedona medical marijuana dispensary show low medical marijuana dispensary sierra vista medical marijuana dispensary south mountain medical marijuana dispensary st johns medical marijuana dispensary sun city medical marijuana dispensary white mountain health center sun city west medical marijuana dispensary superior kearny medical marijuana dispensary surprise medical marijuana dispensary tanque verde medical marijuana dispensary tempe medical marijuana dispensary tubac patagonia medical marijuana dispensary tucson medical marijuana dispensary green medicine wellton dateland medical marijuana dispensary wickenburg medical marijuana dispensary willcox bowie medical marijuana dispensary williams medical marijuana dispensary route 66 wellness center winslow medical marijuana dispensary yavapai medical. viagra effects on women comprar viagra generico farmacias Viagra gel uk what do the bathtubs mean in the viagra commercial buy viagra on line without prescription buying generic viagra online Viagra cheapest price canada cheap generic viagra canadian pharmacy generic viagra buy cheap viagra Viagra 25 mg side effects comprar viagra generico farmacias buy viagra on line cheap can viagra pills expire canadian viagra discounts can you take 20mg viagra daily buy viagra online usa buy generic viagra online usa pharmacy generic viagra no rx 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.
