Strange Toys

I don’t need to embark on a major fund-raising campaign to gain access to the former Kronos cellist Joan Jenenraud’s new looped-based album Strange Toys, which I came across through this review (“. . . listening to this darn CD is keeping me from getting my work done. Damn you, Joan Jeanrenaud.”).

As a matter of fact, I downloaded it from Amazon while writing this post. And youn can listen tom a number of tracks on Joan’s MySpace page.

I love looped-based improvisation. And the way that improvs can grow into pieces, as is evidently the case with many of the tracks on this album.
