Dean Blunt “Free Jazz”

We previously posted the ever-elusive and mysterious Dean Blunt’s video for Mersh, and now Blunt has uploaded to his SoundCloud an hour long live set titled “Free Jazz.” Known for being a member of Hype Williams along with Inga Copeland, Dean’s works have always veered on the more experimental side of things, and this live recording is no different. Recorded at Dalston venue Cafe Oto on April 1, the show featured three pianists (Blunt, Joanne Robertson, Emil Elg), three saxophonists (Asger Hartvig, Shabaka Hutchins, Bradley Miller), two guitarists (Blunt, Robertson), a bass player (Elg), and vocalist Liquid Thompson. The octet played a set which oscillated between serene and terrifying.  Featuring sharp transitions of sound, the set is largely free flowing, though an aspect which grounds the set is the performance poetry of Blunt’s writing by Liquid Thompson.

Take a listen to the set below, and if you like what you hear, keep an eye out for the 12-inch of Blunt’s Mersh, out soon, as well as a full-length release on Rough Trade dubbed Black Metal.
