'Bo'Weavil is excited to present the second album from the Sydney trio Roil. All three of the members of Roil - James Waples, Mike Majkowski and Chris Abrahams have been active in the Australian jazz and Improvised music scenes for many years; James is possibly best known for his work in the Mike Nock Trio; Mike performs regularly with such musicians as Jon Rose and Clayton Thomas; many people would know of Chris through his work with the amazing three-piece group The Necks. Together they have been playing as Roil since 2007, and this is their first release outside of Australia. Their music draws upon varied pallet; at times it comes close to Free Jazz, at other times to Experimental Improv, while also referencing other styles such as Minimalism, Reductionism and Ambient Music. A Roil piece incorporates aspects of textural improvisation, bringing extended techniques to bear on a collective sound world; while also being melodic and conventionally rhythmic. Bringing together the abstract and the figurative. Ltd 500 copies.
Cat. number: Weavil 42cd
Year: 2012
