I Don’t Hear Nothing But The Blues Trio


Drummer Mike Pride and saxophonist Jon Irabagon have been messing with extended improv forms for the past few years, the tension and tumult of their expressionistic forays becoming blustery ragas. For last year’s Appalachian Haze, they added Orthrelm guitarist Mick Barr, who brings hints of drone to the mix. To steal line from Roland Kirk, it’s rip, rig, and panic time when they come screaming towards an apex, and they never met a crescendo that wasn’t worth imploding.
