A collaborative beatdown of original progressive rock instrumentals by three legendary musicians:
Tony Levin – Bass and Chapman Stick
David Torn – Guitar and Textural Events
Alan White – Drums and Percussion
Levin – Torn – White is sure to be appreciated by fans of King Crimson, Torn’s wild guitar work and classic Yes. The album, one year in the making, was recorded in Seattle, WA, Woodstock, NY & New Plymouth, New Zealand. It is produced by Scott Schorr and Tony Levin for Lazy Bones Recordings.
An partnership that blossomed with 1987 and still keeps pulling , guitarist David Torn and bassist Tony Levin together, now, beside a familiar name. Yes drummer Alan White has stepped in to fill empty drum slot, now that Bruford has retired from drumming.
I was very excited at the prospect of hearing all three together. After listening to this many times already, I must say this is very good ear candy. Levin brings a real sense of groove and funk. But the real revelation here is Alan White. I wasn’t too familiar with him and did not think that he could play such interesting stuff in an improv environment, this is a very good recording and I would definitely recommend it to people interested in progressive experimental art rock…
