Patrick Shiroishi, Kyle Motl

Apparitions (Tape)

Label: Notice Recordings

Format: Tape

Genre: Jazz

In stock


Patrick Shiroishi returns with his second Notice album, a duo with double bassist Kyle Motl. “Apparitions” opens this album of the same name, and we are greeted with wispy and amorphous trails of wind-blown textures, as if the very first layer of an abstract painting fell to the floor of an old house and followed the contours of the walls and door frames, under shafts of light and in-between the fine cracks of floors. This is an album full of expressive and poetic phrasings, jittery movements and dry abrasions, constantly shifting and opening spaces for air to breathe by itself. Motl’s bowing is at once light and textural and later deep and full-bodied; his plucking is loose, patterned, and metallic. Shiroishi’s playing is frenetic and incredibly focused, playful and intense, at times intoning into the horn lengthy vocal expressions which only heighten the mysterious and cathartic energy running throughout these pieces.
