|All About Jazz - New York review of Sounding Music|
Eddie Prévost - John Tilbury - Christian Wolf - John Butcher - Ute Kanngeisser
Butcher has become a top name in the chiefly British variety of minimalist improvisation that can best be described as existing in the wake of the longstanding ensemble AMM and with "Sounding Music" he steps into the rotating membership of that venerable ensemble. The disc, in fact, gives a happily resounding reassurance that recent upsets within the group haven't affected its brand marketability. On this occasion, during London's 2009 Freedom of the City festival, they were even joined by composer Christian Wolff (piano, bass guitar and melodica), who had played with the group for a year in the late '60s.
