WEASEL WALTER picture
Weasel Walter is a composer and instrumentalist who founded the band The Flying Luttenbachers in Chicago in 1991 with late jazz cult figure Hal Russell and is a current member of Cellular Chaos and Behold...The Arctopus. Over the years, The Flying Luttenbachers included noted Chicago musicians such as Ken Vandermark, Jeb Bishop, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Dylan Posa, and Michael Colligan, while creating an uncompromising and mercurial body of abstract music drawing equally from no wave, death metal, free jazz, gamelan, noise music, hardcore punk and modern classical. Walter moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2003, where he formed the latest of many Luttenbachers lineups, remaining on percussion with the addition of bassist Mike Green (Burmese), and virtuoso guitarist Ed Rodriguez (ex-Colossamite, Gorge Trio).

WEASEL WALTER Reviews

WEASEL WALTER Electric Fruit (with Mary Halvorson & Peter Evans )

Album · 2011 · Avant-Garde Jazz
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
snobb
I believe everyone familiar with modern avant-garde jazz/free improvs scene's younger generation noticed really interesting and talented guitarist Mary Halvorson (she has released several albums).Trumpeter Peter Evans is another brighter artist, collaborated with Mostly Other People Do The Killing between others. Trio's leader drummer Weasel Walter perhaps is best known for his Chicago work in The Flying Luttenbachers.

Trio's album contains six fully acoustic improvs of very fresh sound. Every musician is more than competent one, but what is more important they don't afraid of experimentation with musical ideas,rooted in Anthony Braxton or Derek Bailey.

With some decades long history free-form improvisational jazz isn't free of cliches (even if this music is most unpredictable by its nature).It's always great when every new generation of musicians is trying to break the expectations. Melodic and scratchy, chaotic and very optimistic, this album sound as a breath of fresh air (even if far not everything sounds excellent here). Punk-rock destruction,jazz-rock heaviness,free-jazz quirkiness - all these components are mixed in one refreshable and non-boring brew.

One interesting album from new avant-garde jazz generation's great artists.
