AAJ Review: Crackleknob

“A compelling example of evenhanded group improvisation,” writes AllAboutJazz.com’s Troy Collins in his recently posted review, “the self-titled debut of the collective trio Crackleknob demonstrates the sort of congenial rapport fueled by longstanding friendships. Together they bring a refined sensibility to these skeletal musical frameworks, centering their eclectic energies on a unified goal.”

He adds, “A first-rate example of spontaneous musical dialog between empathetic peers, Crackleknob combines the timbral adventurousness of European free-improvisation with post-AACM dynamics and contemporary trends in lower-case improv.”

The band, which features trumpeter Nate Wooley, guitarist Mary Halvorson and bassist Reuben Radding, will celebrate its new release at Brooklyn’s Issue Project Room on Sunday, May 24th.
