Re: recent looping discoveries (was EMILY WELLS TRIO: awesomelive looper)
Nice! I've been listening a lot to Ross Hammond, a guitarist who lives
in Sacramento, CA (and is also a swell fellow who helped Jim and I set
up a show there last year). He uses looping in the context of nu jazz (a
la Cline, Frisell, etc) and has a really great Sonny Sharrock-influenced
vibe. He has an ensemble record called "Teakyo Mission" that I've
listened to a dozen times this week.
I've been trying to recall the name of a Nordic looping guitarist who
was mentioned here some months ago. I was listening to him every day for
awhile, then Rhapsody lost my playlist and I can't remember his name. It
was a bit Jon Hassell-ish, sometimes noisy, sometimes more gentle..?
