Marc Edwards - Ode to a Dying Planet

Philip Clark, The Wire

This rehearsal set was never meant to be released, but drummer Marc Edwards reckoned the performance was so ‘out there’, it was worth hustling to get it out. His quartet features Jeffrey Hayden Shurdut (piano) and the guitars of Tor Snyder and Ernest Anderson III. And Edwards is right – the music’s magma flow has a luminosity that would be impossible to recapture. Shurdut’s tactile clusters push way beyond the piano’s capacity for volume and depth of sound, and the two guitars work themselves between harmony and white noise.
This is a download only purchase, which is about right – the first track is briskly cut off and Shurdut’s piano is a tinny sounding instrument.
It’s a sketch for a great album to come.
