Cykada ... CD Astigmatic (UK), 2019. New Copy ...
A searing live set from London's Cykada – recorded in that city's hotbed of new jazz activity, the Total Refreshment Centre – which must have been really abuzz on the night of this show! The group's got a style that's relentless and constantly moving – rhythmic, but never in conventional ways – almost with a cyclical energy that has some elements folding back on themselves while others are moving forward – an approach that's even more mindblowing once the combo really picks up the pace! The Lineup features tenor, trumpet, guitar, electric bass, drums, and some very cool electronics – on titles that include "Third Eye Thunder", "Dimension Stepper", "Creation", "Ophelia's Message", and "Realise".
