Chris Schlarb – Psychic TemplePosted: March 30, 2016
[ Asthmatic Kitty, 2010 ]
Long Beach based composer Chris Shlarb leads the collective of jazz musicians also known as Psychic Temple. Their self-titled debut album shows the unique oceangazing sound, a slow, ambiental deconstruction of free jazz which pulses gently and slowly and feels like a result of cross-polination of Brian Eno and Tortoise. It’s spacious and expansive, and feels like a mild psychedelic high. Sun Ra would be proud. Recommended!
