Alex Zhang Hungtai, David Maranha, Gabriel Ferrandini - Âncora

After deciding to do away with the amazing Dirty Beaches, Alex Zhang Hungtai seems to have moved on to even more experimental directions. Apart from his amazing solo piano recordings cd Knave of Hearts he has started working with other people. One work that has emerged from his collaboration is this cd here, in which he is joined by Portuguese musicians David Maranha and Gabriel Ferrandini on keyboards and drums respectively, while Alex handles the saxophone. The outcome is an ecstatic slab of free jazz that covers the spectrum between passionate noise and psychedelic ritualism. I love this. 2016 cd on Grain of Sound.
