CHRIS CORSANO & METTE RASMUSSEN

duo
Mette Rasmussen (NOR): alto saxophone
Chris Corsano (US): drumset

the great drummer Chris Corsano and fantastic Danish saxophonist Mette Rasmussen. Rasmussen performed in an utterly cathartic quartet performance alongside Corsano, Alan Wilkinson and Pat Thomas as part of Chris’ triumphant five-day residency at Cafe OTO last year, and as a duo the pair have been pushing at the limits of the classic sax/drums set-up. Mette Rasmussen and Chris Corsano’s debut album as a duo is released by Relative Pitch in 2015.

“Rasmussen’s duo with Corsano is another extreme endeavour – as can be heard on their debut album… In revisiting the template laid down by John Coltrane and Rashied Ali on Interstellar Space, the pair pick up on a quintessential and enduring out-jazz configuration – the sax/drums duo… What stands out most on the album is the duo’s use of space. There’s very little in the way of gratuitous skronk – but plenty of room for Rasmussen to investigate a wide palette of voicing, from a raggedly insistent fluttering, through a softly trilling multiphonic purr, and on to high, expressive leaps into flashes of altissimo, just riding the razored edge of controlled lyricism.”
