Bagman Live At Cafe Oto (CDr)

Label: 577 Records

Format: CDr

Genre: Experimental

Preorder: Releases July 22nd 2022


Bagman, an imaginary character dreamt up by this experimental jazz trio, roams around in the figurative soundscape, collecting sonic debris. From a piano played on the inside and outside, electronics, saxophones, drums and junk objects shape a frenetic musical environment. Captured live at Cafe Oto in London, Pat Thomas (Piano, Electronics), Raymond Strid (Drums) and Sture Ericson (Tenor, Soprano Saxophones) assemble fragmented sounds in haphazard, creative and thrilling directions. After years of playing together, the three musicians formed the trio Bagman in 2018, capturing a huge spectrum of dynamic, disruptive music in their improvisational sessions. Bordering on noise music, the trio always returns to wandering melody and their endlessly experimental, spontaneous roots. Pat Thomas, a mainstay on 577 Records’ extensive catalog, having previously released Shifa Live at Cafe Oto (2019), Shifa Live in Oslo (2020), Bleyschool (2019), Educated Guess, Vol. 1-2 (2021-2022), Dikeman/Thomas/Edwards/Noble Vol. 1 (2022)—this will be his first collaboration with Swedish musicians Raymond Strid and Sture Ericson.
