Lonely House (Covers)Tomas Ulrich (Cello), Rolf Sturm (Guitar), Michael Bisio (Bass), Cargo Cult (Primary)Tomas Ulrich's Cargo Cult: certainly one of the definitive string groups of the 21st century and perhaps the most versatile and expansive. This latest release follows up CIMP 375 and Cadence Jazz 1214 with a recording that references a wide range of compositions. The inspirations here range from Leadbelly to Monk. Definitely an enchanting and fun listening experience. Cargo CultTomas Ulrich (Cello), Rolf Sturm (Guitar), Michael Bisio (Bass)Cargo Cult’s first recording (Cadence Jazz Records 1214) was so inspiring, CIMP moved quickly to make this recording. And this recording further inspired CIMP enough to record two more (to be released in the near future) performances by this group. Here is a string trio like you’ve never heard before. Passionate, improvising, beautiful compositions, and soulful delivery. Try this and listen to what the fuss is all about. Fire and WaterKhan Jamal (Vibes), Dylan Taylor (Cello)Metal & wood is a lovely pairing and in music it’s a pure delight, especially with this pair of distinguished improvisers. Khan is a master of shimmering tones and this program explores those tones. Underpinning all that is KHan is the sumptuous cello/bass work of Dylan Taylor. This is all together an indulgence in beauty and invention. Pulling StringsMichael Bisio (Bass), Tomas Ulrich (Cello)For years cellist Tomas Ulrich has been electrifying every group he's been a part of and now, finally, steps out as a co-leader. Mike Bisio, the bassist's bassist, makes up the other half. There's no place to hide here as the two essay eight of Mike's compositions, four of Tomas', and one of Dom Minasi's originals. The results of this meeting of two phenomenal players are definitely up to the potential offered and the talent noted. Mountain AirDominic Duval (Bass), Ron Lawrence (Viola), Gregor Huebner (Violin), Tomas Ulrich (Cello)Dominic Duval's String Quartet, previously known as the CT String Quartet, has been around and documented since the mid 1990s. This new edition introduces the extraordinary Gregor Huebner into the violin chair on a program which takes as its inspiration the music of Cecil Taylor's "Mountain Air." Extemporaneous and totally music of the day, yet easily accessible and rooted. Not Just...David Taylor (Trombone), Steve Swell (Trombone), Billy Bang (Violin), Tomas Ulrich (Cello), Ken Filiano (Bass)Gad. Two trombones and strings! But when the trombones are Dave Taylor and Steve Swell and the strings are Bang, Ulrich, and Filiano, you know this is going to be fun. A five-sided circle that is everything you'd expect from this meeting of fertile musical minds. Over 270 cumulative years in the making, its listening pleasures should last easily that long. Recorded January 5 & 6, 2005. ConscriptionTom Abbs (Bass, Tuba), Brain Settles (Tenor Sax, Flute), Okkyung Lee (Cello), Chad Taylor (Drums, Vibes)Form and finesse are what this music exposed. Tom Abbs is becoming a force in the NYC area, but his talents are on a world scale. As this recording demonstrates, even at the beginning of a career, Tom Abbs is producing distinctive music. Recorded April 21 & 22, 2003, Rossie, NY.
The Dream Catcher (for Wilber Morris)Kevin Norton (Drums, Vibes), Roy Campbell (Trumpet, Flugelhorn), Thomas Ulrich (Cello), Hill Greene (Bass)Four master improvisers meet to pay tribute to Wilber Morris on a set of exceptional originals by Kevin Norton and Wilber Morris. Mellow and lyrical/hard-blowing and lyrical, this is a heart-felt and musically memorable set of music for brass, strings, and percussion. A date with real definition. Recorded January 6 & 7, 2003, The Spirit Room, Rossie, NY. TagYuko Fujiyama (Piano), Mark Feldman (Violin), Tomas Ulrich (Cello)The debut disc for this fine pianist, Yuko Fujiyama, finds her in the company of Mark Feldman (violin) and Tomas Ulrich (cello) in a stunning program of improvised music bridging the traditional worlds of North American and European New Music. Recorded June 16, 1998. 3 Plus 4 Equals 5Joseph Scianni (Piano), Mark Whitecage (Soprano Saxophone), Tomas Ulrich (Cello), Dominic Duval (Bass), Jay Rosen (Drums)Mark Whitecage has been a highly respected and inordinately creative NYC area improvisor for decades. Joseph Scianni is a legendary pianist almost unrecorded over the past 40 years. On this program they intermix their respective groups and explore the harmonies and tonalities of the music. The listening rewards are great as they fly without a net, with only their genius and musical sensibilities to support them. Recorded June 20, 1997.
