Boomkat Product Review:
Group Listening's second album of Clarinet and Piano re-works, covering original work by Beverly Glenn-Copeland, Robbie Basho, Laraaji, Neu!, Grand River and more.
"Group Listening’s first album, Clarinet & Piano: Selected Works, Vol.1, was a meditative selection of musical reworkings. It featured rearranged tracks by the likes of Arthur Russell, Brian Eno and Robert Wyatt.
Fast forward a couple of years and the pair started Clarinet & Piano: Selected Works Vol.2 from an altogether different vantage point. Whereas their first record was put together over an intense three-day period in a hired-out studio, Vol. 2 saw the pair having to work around pandemic lockdowns. This meant taking over Jones’ living room, where they gradually put its ten tracks together between September last year until March of this. They would record one or two songs over a couple of days then pause for the week, building and ruminating on ideas; it allowed the music take on a more ambitious nature – albeit within the chosen pairing of piano and clarinet – but also took in all the bits of chat, traffic noise and other creaks and squeaks of a home recording.
