Álvaro Domene and Briggan Krauss // "Live at The Firehouse Space"
Iluso Records presents an outstanding live concert recording by Álvaro Domene and Briggan Krauss performed at the Firehouse Space in Brooklyn NY in June 2016.
Spanish guitarist/composer Álvaro Domene (Desvelo, Lenticlouds, Sierpe) is a rising star in his new hometown of New York. Domene’s inspired playing and compositional brilliance make him one of the most exciting improvisers in the creative music scene today.
Alto saxophone legend Briggan Krauss (H-Alpha, Sex Mob, Bill Frisell) is a leading force in the improvised music world and has been at the forefront of contemporary jazz during a career spanning over 20 years. Krauss connects the extreme edges of saxophone technique with the unexplored tonal possibilities of the instrument, always pushing the boundaries of contemporary music.
Drawing on each other’s distinct musical experience, the unique voices of Domene and Krauss combine here in a stunning performance of uninhibited improvisation in which the duo’s innate connection sees them push each other along a seemingly perpetual trajectory of artistic exploration. This live recording captures all the intense energy of the concert, which like the duo’s other recent outings, was performed to a captivated audience.
The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jeremiah Cymerman.
