Rodrigo Amado, Joe McPhee, Kent Kessler & Chris Corsano - A History of Nothing (CATALYTIC SOUND 2018)

"A History of Nothing, [Amado's] debut on the Austrian Trost Records, features five improv-centric tunes authored and sculpted by the same quartet that made This Is Our Language (Not Two Records, 2012) a reference in the genre. Namely, Joe McPhee on soprano saxophone and pocket trumpet, Kent Kessler on double bass, and Chris Corsano on drums. 

Amado’s quartet is in peak form, exerting another biting album that comprehends both volcanic and ruminative sonic layers. Just let the freedom touch you while enjoying this finely calibrated commotion." (Filipe Freitas)
