JOHN BARTLES - "Erie Niagara Noir" (2005)

The 10th day of John Bartles stuff reveals the abstract free jazz side of John's music, and his ability to step aside and let the musicians do whatever the Hell they want to. I just realized I dipped into this release a couple of years ago and a song called "The Sphinx." This however is something completely different.

John can put vocals over anything so there's no need for restraint, and he can call it something like "Erie Niagara Noir."
Here's a very short instrumental piece featuring Todd Whitman on Saw and Friction Devices, joined by Mike Hermanson on Trombone.
