Since we last posted…Pete Robbins released a record!

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Since our last post, Pete Robbins record siLENT Z Live came out on the alto saxophonist’s own imprint, Hate Laugh Music. Pete had two consecutive CD release shows at The Tea Lounge in Park Slope, Brooklyn and at Cornelia Street Cafe in Manhattan which received nice preview coverage from The New York Times who called siLENT Z “a willfully progressive outfit” and Time Out New York who wrote “In saxist Pete Robbins’s siLENT Z project, highly developed harmony, complex meter and searing improv merge with a world of experimental loops, ambient soundscapes, hard beats and general abandon. The ’70s term jazz-rock doesn’t cut it, so the best description of this outfit is probably the artist’s own: Brooklyn prog-modern (post)jazz.”
