Originally released as a double length LP on Rift Records in 1986, this seminal recording of downtown legends Jim Staley, Fred Frith, John Zorn, Ikue Mori, Bill Frisell, Shelly Hirsch, Elliot Sharp, Wayne Horvitz, and Samm Bennet is finally available in its entirety on this digitally remastered double-disc edition. Jim Staley & Co. conjure up “…prime…NYC art damage, all trios, with Staley’s expressive trombone as the common denominator”, (Bill Tilland, Option Magazine). The result of a philosophy that wishes to extend the development of intuition from the matter of spontaneous musical decisions to the initial choice of the musicians themselves, Mumbo Jumbo explores the nature of improvisation.
SCATTERED THOUGHTS is the new double disc release by Roulette’s Einstein Records. Split on 2 CDs, the album documents two live shows at Roulette: one with Roulette founder and trombonist Jim Staley and bassist William Parker, the other with Jim Staley and percussionist Joey Baron.
