Mike Shiflet (Solo Renegade #8 )
Mike Khoury (Solo Renegade #9)
Jon Lorenz (Solo Renegade #10)
This is the latest set of 3″ cdrs in the Solo Renegade series on the excellent Lost Treasures Of The Underwold label. This time round the artists were Mike Shiflet, Mike Khoury & Jon Lorenz. I personally thought the avant jazz scratchings of Jon Lorenz to be the best of the lot. Lorenz is a saxaphone player normally heard plying his trade as part of the Wasteland Jazz Unit though recently he’s been doing a few solo sax releases and has also formed a new band with C. Spencer Yeh & Ryan Jewell who have just the one release out so far which is the “Live At C.A.C 7.21.08” 2xC10 (will be posting that eventually too as it’s great) which consists of all three (Yeh on violin, Jewell on drums & Lorenz on sax) jamming on four 5minute avant jazz pieces.. Anyway, enjoy these short & consice pieces..
