The Avant Garde Project celebrates its fifth anniversary with its first new installment in over a year. AGP169 is a 24-bit, 44.1 kHz transcription of a remarkable, long out-of-print LP from 1982 on The Beak Doctor label, featuring the prepared piano of Greg Goodman with guest artistry by Jon Rose on violin and Henry Kaiser on electric guitar. It's a beautifully recorded LP in excellent condition with essentially no surface or pressing noise. The music occupies the shared outlands of extreme jazz and modern classical. With the exception of the last track, piano and violin are played more percussively than melodically, and the sounds of the prepared piano together with Henry Kaiser's idiosyncratic guitar is a real timbre-fest. Notes on the release can be found at The Beak Doctor website. While you're there, be sure to check out their other recordings, many of which are in print and available for purchase internationally.
