Fiona's Comments

Sounds like a Hogmanay pipe massacre overseen by electric Miles and one too many Auchentoshan. Those naughty Niravalic Netherlanders.

About the Album

The track is from the new Spinifex album 'Hipsters Gone Ballistic.' It features a beautiful trumpet solo by Gijs Levelt and fireworks drumming by Philipp Moser. Extremely tight irregular structures and extensive free improvisations, inspired by free jazz, contemporary composed music, math metal and carnatic music. Spinifex was launched in 2006 by saxophonist Tobias Klein, trumpet player Gijs Levelt and flutist Ned McGowan. The first years their activities concentrated on a nonet, the Spinifex Orchestra. In 2008, Spinifex released the cd Triodia, which was very well received.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
