For his inaugural U.S. performance, Dan is welcomed by the outlaw forefathers of New England avant grade: saxophonist Paul Flaherty and percussionist Randall Colbourne. These longtime duo partners, joined by Damon Smith on double bass, show no hesitation in charging head-on with their new radical brother.
The album’s opening moments simmer as Dan and Flaherty meditate at the bottom registers before exploding into a multiphonic sustain of runs and melodic jabs. Smith and Colbourne rattle and roar. It’s a splattering overture that eventually resolves as suona and sax merge into a piercing gesture of heartbreaking unity. It turns this record store gig into a point of transcultural definition. Recorded April 2018 at Willimantic Records in Willimantic, Connecticut.
