With the cd by Goldstein, Heward and Wiens three new names appear on Ambiances Magnétiques. This happens not that often, as most releases carry the names of Lussier, Duchesne, Hétu, Derome and their many friends. This trio is also from Canada and as the included information tells they already exist a long time. Goldstein is known as a performer of new music since the 60s. John Cage and Ornette Coleman composed for him. Heward is also active in painting and sculpture. Wiens works a lot in theatre. Wiens, Heward and Goldstein on guitar, drums and violin respectively present their first album here. It’s the result of playing together several years now. Their type of improvisation reminds me a lot of the european way of improvising as this came up since the mid sixties, when european jazz musicians started to develop their own idiom of jazz and impro music. It is hard to judge whether new territory is discovered here. Everybody who is into this kind of music and is curious to what new names make of it, should check this one out, as it is an example of good collective playing.
