Herbie Stage Rig

by Andrew Pask in


Been a while.

Here's an article I wrote for cycling74.com about the work I have been doing recently for Herbie Hancock.

It's all a bit out of date now - everything has changed again! I've just finished building him an amazing new looper.

Kaiser Birthday gig

by Andrew Pask


I forgot to tell you about this one.

I played in San Diego over the weekend at a gig celebrating the birthday of Jeff Kaiser.

Here are some of his rehearsal photos

We got a review in

"Andrew Pask squeezed notes from his soprano like a sociopath strangling puppies."

I'll probably hang on to that one for the CV

Gifted and multifaceted saxophonist-clarinetist Andrew Pask assembled a quartet of veteran local musicians who, like him, were strongly inspired and influenced by the classic 1976 ECM recording by bassist Barre Phillips called Mountainscapes in order to pay tribute to this work by playing some of the music from it together.  Pask, employing tenor and soprano saxophones, bass clarinet, and electronics, along with keyboardist Wayne Peet, contrabassguitarist Steuart Liebig, and drummer Alex Cline, uses many of the record’s composed themes as well as its sonic and improvisational approach and aesthetic as points of departure for the group’s collective musical manifestations.  Having played together in various settings over a number of years, the quartet draws on its own unique and well-developed chemistry as well as its shared appreciation for Phillips’ landmark recording to create a dynamic context for some expansive music-making.  The music, far from dated, is presented with a personal stamp of freshness and creativity, making for a memorable playing and listening experience.
 
Opening the evening is a trio of musicians whose mere combined talents should bode well for any fan of accomplished and creative improvised music-making, electric guitarist Tom McNalley, trumpeter Jeff Kaiser, and trombonist Michael Vlatkovich.  McNalley, often heard in a trio context with rhythm section, presents for himself, the musicians, and the listeners, a musical context overflowing with potential for free, open-ended melodic invention and sonic exploration.  Having worked with both Kaiser and Vlatkovich many times over the years, both of whom are world-class players in any situation, McNalley creates an opportunity for a set of sensitive, sophisticated, spirited, and witty musical adventures.
